Bruce for Haren? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Tue Apr 17, 2012 11:49 pm

Is Jay Bruce for Dan Haren considered a fair trade in a 12-team H2H Keeper league where I dont plan on keeping Bruce anyway?

My starting pitching has been TERRIBLE

C - M Montero
1st - Morales
2nd - Kinsler
3rd - Lawrie
SS - Castro
OF - Kemp
OF - Bruce
OF - Ethier
Util - Ortiz

Bench: Goldshmidt, D Young

They are about equal. depends on your needs. I think you have good arms, they have just been laggin...

I would stay with Bruce, but if you throw in tier closer like Capps or Aceves and get a good bench bat Id be more willing.

Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I'd rather have Bruce, but it's certainly not a bad trade.

I'd rather have Bruce too. If you get a second nice piece back maybe I pull the trigger.

I would be fine with it. I think Young can be a good fill-in. I think your SP can be fine but adding Haren would move it into another tier. Right now I think you are about middle of the pack.
