Help on Kimbrel for Mccann Keeper trade

Postby whiteyzacks » Fri May 11, 2012 10:03 am

Hey All, Thanks for the help in advance.

I am in a h2h keeper league with OBP and losses as the additional categories. Our league covets saves quite a bit, as there are 2 people running the all closers strategy (and with the craziness from this years closers situation). As you can see I have Reed and Soriano as save speculation pick ups, but I really only have one other legit closer outside of kimbrel. Would trading Kimbrel to upgrade at catcher be a good move here?

Thanks and supply a link for me to check out your question.

My Roster:
C- Wilson Ramos
1B- Prince Fielder
2B - Ben Zobrist
3B - David Wright
SS - Jose Reyes
OF - Ryan Braun
OF Carlos Gonzalez
OF Jay Bruce
Util - Adam Laroche/Nick Markakis

SP - Tim Lincecum
SP- Cliff Lee
SP - Jordan Zimmermann
RP - Craig Kimbrel
RP - Brandon League
RP - Addison Reed
RP - Rafael Soriano
SP - Gavin Floyd
SP - Cole Hamels
SP - Tommy Hanson

As much as I don't love closers, I think I value catchers even less. I think I would rather keep Kimbrel who can be a stud and keep Ramos who can be adequate.

this ones tough both are the best player at their position right now and both are decently young. But i think you take mccann here as saves can be found through the WW all year long and a catcher like this cant be.
