Gio for Cruz

Postby Bherman13 » Sun Jun 03, 2012 5:00 pm

12 team league, small rosters 6x6 scoring (R, 2B, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, K/9)

Satisfied with Kipnis' performance, I decided to shop Kinsler around. I offered him for Gio Gonzalez, and the owner rebuttled with Gio for Cruz. Should I snatch it? I feel my team is pretty well stacked other than pitching.

C- Ruiz
1B- Butler
2B- Kipnis
3B- Lawrie
SS- Aviles
OF- J Upton
OF- Cruz
OF- Trout
UTIL- Holiday
UTIL- Kinsler
UTIL- A Cabrera
BENCH- Braun (only benched because of injury), Sandoval (DL)

SP-Lee
SP- Bumgarner
RP- Lynn
RP- Hammel
P- Samardzija
P- Capuano
Bench- Lewis

His team
C- Wieters
1B- Cabrera
2B- Uggla
3B- Encarnacion
SS- Jeter
OF- Stanton
OF- Harper
OF- Bruce
UTIL- Dunn
UTIL- Jesus Montero
UTIL- Empty
Bench- Longoria (DL)

SP- Gio
SP- King Felix
RP- Motte
RP- Myers
P- Nathan
P- Cain
Bench- Gallardo, Santana, Weaver (DL), Storen (DL)

I would do it. Braun will be back soon enough, and your pitching could use a boost/depth. The value is right.
Goldy is King.

I'd pull the trigger. Even though Gio had a rough outing today, he is still worth it.

Who are some of the free agents available?

IMO its pretty easy, Cruz has a history of injuries (its a matter of time)

Gio IMO is one of the better young SP's in the game right now.

Thats a very fair trade for both sides imo. I would make the move.

If I was you I would still shop Kinsler around tho, since you have Kipnis. See if you can get a quality OF'er or another SP.

Lynn IMO is a perfect "sell high" guy right now. I don't see him keeping up the pace. I think he turns into a solid #3 guy. I would consider shopping him around as well.

It's a yahoo league, so players only need 5 starts the year before at a position to be eligible for it the next year. (Butler played 11 at 1B last year).

The top Free agents are: De Aza, Headley, Laroche, Seager, Saunders and Ackley. Pitchers are Marcum, Vogelsong, Zambrano, Milone, and Wandy.

Out of that group the only guy i really like in a 12 team league would be De Aza for his SB/RUN potential.
