Trade Freeman for Casilla?

Postby mremis » Fri May 25, 2012 12:44 am

I'm in the top ranks of hitting categories (r/rbi/hr/sb) but my average is lagging. I only have 18 saves so far and have 4 points in that category. The leader has 44.

I have an offer on the table of my Freddie Freeman for his Santiago Casilla.

Anyone care to give their two cents? My roster & information is below.

12 Team ESPN Mixed League. 5 x 5 Roto.

C AJ Ellis
1B J Votto
2B D Ackley
3B K Seager
SS A Cabrera
CI F Freeman
MI M Scutaro

Util J Lucroy

Bench B Bogucevic
Bench K Youkilis
DL C Utley

P Y Gallardo
P J Zimmermann
P M Baumgarner
P B Norris
P W Rodriguez

Seems pretty pricey to me, but it doesn't really look like it will hurt you all to much with Youk taking Freeman's spot in your lineup. I'd see if you can get a little more out of this deal. Try for Jim Johnson, Perez, Rodney or just see if he'll add something else to this deal.

I agree that it's a tad pricey. I don't know if he has anyone else to throw in that I would be interested. His other closers are reed, soriano, then he has walden & henry rodriguez. I guess I would go for Santana or Annibal Sanchez if I had to.

This league is pretty stingy, trading has been hard to come by.

Of those closers, I would most want Casilla. The others are either bleh or not secure in their jobs.

I agree with the above posters that it is a little pricey, but, if you need to make a move, I would make it.

I would much quicker trade Youk for Casilla. You are overpaying far too much for a closer here, even if you need one. Try to get more for Freeman or move Youk for a decent closer, then if all else fails, you can execute this deal.

Eh that's a little bit overpaying here.

You have only Youk to replace Freeman AND you are using a catcher at utility and that's never good.

Package Lucroy and Freeman for a middling closer and solid CI in return see if you can find someone who you fit with.

I might go for something along the lines of hmm: Myers and Konerko?
