Huge trade involving Granderson/Reyes please give your input

Postby cassplaya4 » Thu May 10, 2012 12:30 pm

I was offered Granderson, Rollins, Holland, and B McCarthy FOR Reyes, Jennings, and Hanrahan.

First thoughts? I told the league I need SP and OF, and I put Reyes and all my closers on the block.

This is a 10 team H2H league..

C - Monetero
1B - Cabrera
2B - Altuve
3B - P Alvarez, Sandoval (DL)
SS - Reyes, Furcal
OF - Choo, Stubbs, Maybin, Jennings, Zobrist, Gardner (DL)

SP - Kershaw, Price, Lester, Garza, Lilly, H Alvarez
CP - Betancourt, Hanrahan, Rodney, Robertson, Sale, Downs

I don't think McCarthy is worth the roster spot at this point. Bad team, poor K/9, and health issues. Maybe try asking for a SP to replace him. Otherwise I think it is a good deal, and you're getting the best player (Granderson) so usually that would mean you came out on top.

Could you weigh in on mine? viewtopic.php?t=446585

I'd be hesitant, here's why:

B McCarthy - Possible injury. His shoulder just caused him to get his start pushed back.
J Rollins - Slumping before he was moved up in the batting order, but he's older and streakier now

Reyes- Seems to be picking it up now after a slow start.

If you are looking for SP, I don't think Holland and McCarthy are the answers. See what pitchers are on a hot streak right now, like Jake Westbrook, Chris Capuano, and Kyle Lohse.

It is close but I think you need one solid player instead of Rollins and McCarthy. Too many questions marks with these two guys for me to want them right now.

What if I countered and asked for Granderson, Holland, and Jordan Zimmerman? Would I be giving up too much?
