5x5 Roto League that uses OBP instead of BA 12 Teams
We start 2 closers, and with Mariano going down....I NEED a closer.
I've been offered 2 trades....one a safe one, one a gamble
Trade A: I trade away Ervin Santana for Frank Fransisco
Trade B: I trade away Nelson Cruz, for Martiin Prado and Chris Sale (just named the closer for the White Sox)
Here is my Pitching Staff: Lester/Strasburg/Jaime Garcia/Matt Moore/Brandon Beachy/Drabek/Lilly/Milone (we start 7) Here are my OF's (McCutchen, Cruz, Stubbs, Willingham, Pagan, Duda, Schaeffer, Morrison) We start 5 OFS
I guess I would lean towards Trade B if you had to. Are there any FA closers at all? There has been a lot of turnover and it sounds like you only start 24 closers in your league, leaving 6 (pending the outcome of the Cubs' situation. I think all of the other 29 teams have a closer who is named for now, at least). I am not sure Francisco will last and I think Cruz is too much for a closer.
we only get 1 pick up a week, i used mine already this week.....so If i dont make a trade Im going to go a week with only 1 closer, considering I went this week without mariano as well. So gonna be 2 weeks with only 1 closer. dont wanna fall too far behind in that ctgry.
cruz for Sale/prado is the best offer ive had so far
or santanna for Fransisco....then I can use my pickup this week to try and get one of the cubs relievers, or even Heath Bells replacement if they choose to make a move there.
I like trade A better...even though Francisco isn't a lock to stay closer for a bad Mets team, Sale isn't a guarantee to stay at closer either, the sox may want to move him back to the rotation at some point. You have to give a lot more to get Sale--and I'm not sold Prado
Honestly, i might offer Stubbs for Sale straight-up and see if it works.
