Need help BAD! WHIR!

Postby Bravos of Steel » Sun May 13, 2012 2:39 pm

I've been offered Michael Bourn and Max Scherzer for my Howie Kendrick and Bryan LaHair. I definitely need steals, but is LaHair legit? And will Scherzer take the next step? Leave a link, I'll definitely help. Standard 12 team yahoo league, H2H.

Yes, I love this trade. Bourn provides a ton of speed for you, and Max changed the way he holds his glove/ball in his windup and you've seen the result over the last two starts. 18 K's, 2 BBs, 13.1 innings. Looks good to me.

Even if LaHair is legit, he's at best a 25 HR guy with 80 RBI potential. I'd rather have the speed of Bourn (him along with JRoll/Schafer could win you steals every week) and the upside of Max.

I would probably have done that deal just for Bourn so getting Scherzer is more of a throw in. LaHair might be for real but that doesn't mean all that much. Craig can fill his spot pretty easily and Kendrick is a nice 2B but not a strong Util play and should be easy to replace.

YUP! Do this. It upgrades your team. Getting Craig off the bench is a huge plus... This kid is a hitting machine... He's no fluke. Legit 85/30/100/.310 hitter that's eligible at 1b, 2b and OF in most leagues. That's Michael Young territory, plus power.

Any thoughts on mine? ---> viewtopic.php?t=446868
