Trade my Hector Santiago for Max Scherzer

Postby KaPluie » Fri Apr 27, 2012 4:10 pm

Scherzer has been up and down, but so has hector. I wouldn't mind turning him into another SP arm.

I'd do that. I don't expect Santiago to keep the closer job.

After having owned Scherzer in a dynasty for the last 4 years, I'd tell you to stick with Santiago. I do like the idea of dealing him though so keep looking.

Yeah, I'm not sure Scherzer is even ownable .. seems like a drop candidate. Pretty inconsistent for H2H

I'd stick with Santiago. In a 12 team league the WW should be sparse re: closers and you only have 2 others. Scherzer is a headache every start, not worth the effort.

Scherzer is a spot starter. Santiago is a closer (for now). So, nope. I'd hold onto Santiago.

An upside starter like Scherzer is more valuable than a bottom-tier closer who almost certainly won't be one in a month.
