keeper league trade

Postby Effrum » Thu Apr 19, 2012 8:57 pm

Hi guys,
I'm in a 10 team keeper league, and I've been offered Jordan Zimmermann for Aroldis Chapman. I can give the rest of my pitching staff if necessary, but would you do this deal? Why or why not? Thanks.

Lineups and scoring always helps ;-D

But at face value? Yes, take Zim. Chapman could be stuck in middle relief all year and only give you 60-70 innings.

I have the following pitchers
Chapman
Brandon League
Craig Kimbrel
Johan santana
Josh Beckett
Kyle Lohse
Mariano Rivera
Mike Minor
Yu Darvish

I really appreciate the input guys. I'm gonna think about it a little longer, but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna take the offer.

I'd take it and run. Aroldis looks awesome so far, but Zimmermann is going to have a much greater impact on your team overall.

I think with the RPs you have, Zim will fit your team a little better. I say roll with him. Zimmerman should give you a solid win total and his team will only continue to get better. Also like others have said, you dont really know what Chapman's role will be going forward

I'd take a solid starter for a middle relief pitcher any day. Take that deal immediately.
