Is Haren a good buy low target??

Postby Jase44 » Thu May 24, 2012 8:36 am

A guy in my league wants A.Cabrera from me and I do want to get rid of him as I have Furcal and Seager.

He offered Romero, but as a Jays fan, watching Romero throw as many BB as K and walking batters at a stupid rate is not right for him and I'm hesitant.

I was thinking about targeting his Haren, either straight up or throw Santos as I can't use him once healthy.

Think it's a fair offer or should I stay away from Haren?

Thanks - leave a link

Well, go for Haren. He might just be having enough of a rough start that Cabrera/Santos will win the other guy over. Worth a try, as Haren will certainly rebound because he's better than this.

Absolutely. I just did the same thing not too long ago. Baseball is a funny game, and he will perform at such an elite level that his end of year numbers will match his career averages. Definitely a premium buy low target. You can definitely low ball for him and reap the benefits later

Help?

I would do it and do it NOW. Haren is going to have a nice win tonight against Seattle and the buy low window will close a bit.

Doesn't look like he is going to pull the trigger before tonight... I hope he has a poor outing to help my chances of closing the deal. And I hope Montero and Seager are the ones to cause damage...would be a win win for me :D
