Was offered Gallardo for Kenley Jansen - should I take?

Postby Lionsno20 » Wed May 09, 2012 10:50 pm

12 team, mixed league, head-to-head, 6 x 6 - r, rbi, sb, tb, avg, ops and w, k, era, whip, sv, hld

I proposed my Aceves for his Gallardo. He countered by offering his Gallardo for Kenley Jansen.

His only closer is Jason Motte. I have Aceves, Marshall, Castilla, and Jansen, also Rafael Soriano.

Should I accept the trade? Gallardo isn't pitching that well right now. Jansen looks like a beast closer. Am I over thinking this? A starter is better than a closer, right? My other starters are Kershaw, Cain, Beachy, Josh Johnson, Tim Hudson, Luebke.

I'm a newbie looking for advice.

Thanks.

I wouldn't. Jansen is going to be your best closer and your pitching staff is already pretty damn good.

That's a tough one. In a vacuum, I like Gallardo more than Jansen. However, your starting pitching already is pretty strong and losing Jansen would leave you weak in relief pitching. Are there any guys available like Addison Reed that you can pick up to fill in for Jansen if you make the deal? If so, I'd be much more inclined to make the deal. Closers are such an uncertain commodity that it makes sense to get a solid SP or position player for one if you can.

Help mine?

I would do it, Gallardo has struggled but will get it going soon. Jansen is going to be good in the closer role, but you can always find saves.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like a close/fair trade if I decide to accept.
