McCarthy, Colon, Robertson Trade WHIR!

Postby aqr135 » Mon May 07, 2012 8:31 am

So I made a decision without really thinking to offer Brandon McCarthy and Bartolo Colon for David Roertson. Closers are highly valued in my league and Robertson should get most of the Yankees' saves going forward. Was this a dumb trade for me? WHIR!

You said that closers are highly valued but you already have 3 pretty good ones. I think that if you did want to deal some SP it might be for some help in the OF.

Not a deal I would have done but it is unlikely to kill you. If you think Robertson is going to be a solid top 10 kind of closer then you could easily win this kind of deal.
