Trade Lance Lynn for Rafael Soriano? 12 teams h2h

Postby mcdablo » Sun Jun 03, 2012 6:02 pm

Hey all and thanks for checking out this post. So do I trade Lancy lynn for Rafael Soriano? I only have two closers. Most teams in my league have 3 closers if they are trying not to punt saves completely. I do not get many SBs, so it is essential that I remain competitive in saves. I lead my league in ERA by nearly .5 as well. My pitchers are:

Wandy, Strasburg, Marcum, Zambrano, Josh Johnson, Wei-yin Chen, Roy Oswalt, Vance Worley
RP: Joe Nathan, Brett Myers

I did have Scott Downs but just dropped him because has been demoted to the setup man. There are no closers or even potential closers on the waiver wire. This is a standard 12 team h2h league. Thanks for the help.

Not even close. Starters hold more value than closers in general, and Lynn is a much better starter right now than Soriano at closer. That's an emphatic no for me. Maybe get a decent starter in addition to Soriano and maybe something can be done.

I agree. I don't like the deal. Getting another player on your side and maybe then you have something but right now you are over-paying.

I would Keep Lynn hes been having a Really good year and plus he is a SP who has much more value over a RP.
