Hi, fantasy baseball Newbie here. I think the answer is "yes", but what do I know??? Plus I'm suspicious of all proposed trades in fantasy.
Someone offered me Dan Haren for Yadier Molina.
8 team rotissierie league, 5x5. (R, HR, RBI, BA, SB). (K, W, SV, ERA, WHIP).
I'm currently in 2nd place, 1st place most of the year so far. My offense is killing it. My pitching is not. (8+7+8+8+8 points for offense). (3+1+7+1+4 for pitching).
Here's who I have: C Yadier Molina, StL C 1B Adrian Gonzalez, Bos 1B 2B Dustin Pedroia, Bos 2B 3B Adrian Beltre, Tex 3B SS Asdrubal Cabrera, Cle SS 2B/SS Dee Gordon, LAD SS 1B/3B David Wright, NYM 3B OF Matt Kemp, LAD OF OF Adam Jones, Bal OF OF Jason Heyward, Atl OF OF Josh Willingham, Min OF, DH OF Yoenis Cespedes, Oak OF UTIL Michael Young, Tex 1B, 3B, DH
Bench Carlos Santana, Cle C, 1B Bench Rickie Weeks, Mil 2B DL Lance Berkman*, StL 1B, OF DL15
P CC Sabathia, NYY SP P Matt Cain, SF SP P Jordan Zimmermann, Wsh SP P Jose Valverde, Det RP P Josh Johnson, Mia SP P J.J. Putz, Ari RP P Brandon League, Sea RP P Gio Gonzalez, Wsh SP P Lance Lynn, StL RP, SP
OK, thanks guys. I'm doing it! It was a nice luxury to have 2 quality catchers to plug in on an off day or to ride the hot hand (although I usually bench the wrong guy). But clearly my team is too offense heavy.
I see you're already taking it, but just wanted to throw in my two cents. Not sure what the other manager is thinking, but yes...definitely take that one. So nice trade if it passes through the league!
