Granderson for Bautista?

Postby samiam88 » Tue May 15, 2012 11:38 pm

10 team H2H with daily rostser changes
Cats: Hitting - R, HR, RBI, SB, K, OBG, SLG
Pitching - W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, QS

My team:
C - Alex Avila
1B - Mark Texeira
2B - Ian Kinsler
SS - Elvis Andrus
3B - Jose Bautista
OF - Bryan Lahair
OF - Adam Jones
OF - Michael Bourn
DH - Freddie Freeman
BN - Austin Jackson
BN - Mike Aviles
BN - Carlos Ruiz
DL - Brett Gardner

SP - Zack Greinke
SP - Jordan Zimmerman
RP - Craig Kimbrel
RP - Henry Rodriguez
P - Aroldis Chapman
P - Alexi Ogando
P - Kyle Lohse
P - Doug Fister
BN - Drew Smyly (stream)
DL - Drew Storen

So one the guys in my league just offered me Curtis Granderson for Jose Bautista. I think it definitely would help my outfield but I'm afraid it would even more hurt 3B since I would have to put in Aviles there. He also said he is looking for an upgrade in 2B and SS so I thought of maybe offering Kinsler or Andrus. Here is his team.

C - McCann
1B - Pujols
2B - Jemile Weeks
SS - Rollins
3B - Trumbo
OF - Granderson
OF - Hart
OF - Berkman
DH - Billy Butler
BN - Jesus Montero
BN - RIckie Weeks
BN - Willingham
DL - Sandoval

SP - Josh Johnson
SP - Cliff Lee
RP - Kenley Jansen
RP - Sean Marshall
P - Matt Capps
P - Sergio Romo
P - Frank Francisco
P - Mat Latos
BN - Cole Hamels

He also has a pretty good pitching staff so maybe i could swing a deal getting another decent starter like Latos. What do others suggest? If you post your link I will definitely help. Thanks!

Grab Trumbo and Granderson and give him Bautista and a bum...or is there anyone half descent on waivers at 3rd? I like Granderson though...

see mine

Yeah Bautista and Kimbrel
his Granderson, Trumbo or maybe a SP (Latos or Johnson) this guy has a stacked staff.
I'd dump Ruiz for an upside bat.

Thank you all for your help.
I counter offered him with Bautista/Aviles for Granderson/Trumbo and am waiting to hear back from him. If he doesn't like it then I'm thinking of replacing Aviles with LaHair. I think Trumbo will end up having a better season than LaHair. His BABIP is already starting to regress.

Why Kimbrel? He's my only established closer who can get me consistent saves right now. Are you thinking I should just give up on saves every week?

I like the Trumbo/Granderson route. Bautista/LaHair should get it done for you.

help mine?
