The Right Thing?!?

Postby drifter4life » Sun Apr 22, 2012 7:23 am

I already pulled trigger on a deal but now having some doubts!

I traded Felix Hernandez & Dustin Pedroia for Clayton Kershaw & Jason Heyward.

League is 9 team daily ROTO, 16 scoring categories (R, H, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, AVG, SB, BB---W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, SHO).
I've been in 1st place most of season so far (Avg 110 pts).

My pitching solid, I have(had) SPs Hernandez, Peavy, Colby Lewis, Hamels--RPs C Perez, Joe Nathan, Betancourt, Brett Myers, and just picked up Hector Santiago (drop Marmol)
Reg Batters: Y Molina, Cuddyer, Freese, Ian Desmond, Ethier, Nelson Cruz, Austin Jackson, Dustin Pedroia, Adrian Gonzalez, Willingham, BJ Upton, Furcal, Encarnacion.

I'm middle of pack in R(5), 1B(6), 3B(4.5) SB(5) and bottom third in BB(3). Pitching I'm W(7), SV(8), K(9), ERA(7), WHIP(6), SHO(5).

I think Kershaw has better shot at W's and I'm hoping Heyward maintains for entire season.
I did good, right???

Kershaw is an upgrade over Hernandez but you are losing a good bat in Pedroia. Bottom line is: Its all about Heywards long term production. If he delivers properly, you win this trade, if not, you lose.

Whos gonna be your 2B then? Cuddyer?

Yeah, Cuddyer, he was definitely my biggest find on draft day. I'm trying to get Aviles cheap as well. I think Ellsbury's injury swayed me, Pedroia's potential will take a hit. Like you say, it's all about Heyward keeping pace entire season.

Thanks for yer input, good luck to you this season!

I think you sold Pedroia a low. Felix and Kershaw aren't that far off where Pedroia is a top 15 player and Heyward is not quite in the realm yet. I like Heward a lot but I think you should have been able to get another player in the deal.
