My Markakis for his Niemann

Postby Irish Drunk » Tue May 08, 2012 2:59 pm

Does this trade make sense for me? Here are my OF and SP

OF - J Upton, M Trout, Del Young, C Rasmus, J Bruce
SP - T Hanson, W Rodriguez, F Liriano, C Billingsley, R Detwiler, J Saunders, L Hochevar, D Gee, J Chacin(Minors)

16 team league traditional 5x5 roto

As you can see I need some pitching help (I hate you Liriano). I was hoping to get Gavin Floyd for Markakis but he prefers to give up Niemann instead. Do I do this trade if I think Niemann can get 14W with a sub 4.00 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with 150 K's?

I would not do that. Niemann is solid enough but I think you can get more for Markakis given Baltimore's resurgence and the allure of Markakis' statistics. Floyd should have been adequate, even if he is still not enough in my opinion.

I agree. I think you could do better than Niemann. He is ok but is nothing more than a spot starter and i think you can get someone that can do more than that for you.
