Moustakas for David Robertson? WHIR

Postby acertijo » Wed May 09, 2012 11:56 pm

I'm in a 10 team H2H redraft league. I had to put Pablo Sandoval on the DL and picked up Chris Davis to replace him at 3B. I'm not sure how much I trust him to keep up his current production. I was just offered Moustakas for David Robertson and am wondering if he's a good enough upgrade at 3B to give up Robertson. I have an excess of RPs, so I can afford to lose one. I like Moustakas but the other concern is that he'd be my third Royal in my line-up (I already have Billy Butler and Hosmer).

Current RPs:
Brett Myers
Jim Johnson
Chris Perez
Fernando Rodney
Addison Reed
David Robertson
Kenley Jansen

Opinions?

Leave a link and I'll help in return for sure!

I'd do this trade. Robertson hasn't really entrenched himself yet as the main man in the 9th with his early struggles closing out games and Soriano looming. You have other options at closer and fill a need at 3B. Thanks for the help on mine.

Id counter with any other closer (minus Jansen) and see if he bites. Robertson is of higher value now and should keep the job and thrive

Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

Unfortunately, I disagree. I love Robertson...and really had high hopes he could replace Mo some day...but Robertson just does not have that closer mentality...he is a consummate setup man...and his recent interviews show that mentality.

When he gets moved back to the setup role and Soriano is given the closer roll..he will go back to being just a really good ratios guy.

I say take it. Especially if you are in need of a 3B

Thanks for the help on mine ;-D

I like the deal for you... I think that you have enough RP's to get rid of one and like mentioned before Robertson while he is excellent as a set up man, didn't really prove he was ready for the closer role yet. Plus you will have enough to get by without him even if he stays the closer.

Given last night's performance, I'd say Robertson is still on a short leash. I'd definitely pull the trigger on this one.

I would do the trade but I also would like to see Robertson go again...if it his job and he won't lose it, I think he is your best closer. Just my opinion...If you don't have to pull the trigger just yet then I would wait to see what Robertson does again.

I would wait a few more chances and see if DRob gets hot and his trade value can increase. If he stays how he is doing now than I would do the deal for Moustakas.

Help?

I'm sure if Robertson has a couple of more rough outings the other manager will cancel the trade offer, so I'm trying to forecast and decide as quickly as I can. A big hang up continues to be having to have three Royals hitters (Hosmer, Butler, and Moustakas) in my starting line up. It makes me skittish...

Thanks for all the replies so far. I think I've gone to all links and helped.

Any other suggestions?
