Freeman & Pomeranz for Cahill, Papelbon, Walker, and Pagan

Postby rcampbell2 » Thu Apr 26, 2012 11:31 am

This is an NL only 5x5 roto league with traditional cats and 10 keepers. I currently have 107 points with good showings in all categories. The rationale for making the trade is that I would be replacing three roster fillers with solid starters. I would lose Freeman and a good minor leaguer/possible keeper. Being from Atlanta is clouding my vision.

Based on projections:
Walker and Pagan should increase my runs, RBI, and SB while keeping avg and HR steady
Cahill and Papelbon should increase my wins, saves, and Ks while keeping my whip and era steady.

Thoughts?

Thanks

I'd rather have Freeman/Pomeranz. Cahill really did nothing last year, and hasn't really showed changing to the NL is helping, Papelbon, aging RP, RP's show up all the time, Walker and Pagan are really borderline holding a roster position, only being an NL league would even make me think about it.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=445250

This ones tough being an NL only league and 10 man keeper.

IMO Freeman is the 2nd most valued 1b in the NL behind votto(howard hurt and berkman's age).
Promeranz is a very highly ranked young pitcher who can really help your team in the future but also does pitch in colorado.


Papelbon is the #2or3 closer in the league behind kimbrel and MO, so he would def help.
Cahill Im not a big fan of but can be very solid.
Walker i feel is very underrated and can be a very solid 2b and pagan idk about cause there offense just doesnt seem to get it together ever.

Maybe if you can post the rest of your roster....
