Time to Move Romero? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Jun 04, 2012 2:01 pm

I know Halladay is on the DL, but I am scratching my head as to why my team era is always creeping up towards 4 each week despite some guys with good pedigree. I think Ricky Romero is part of the problem, so I am wondering if he is a guy to wait on to turn it around of if I should package him with Smoak or Viciedo for one of these SPs:

Yovani Gallardo
Ian Kennedy

Thoughts?

I love the idea of getting Gallardo. I think he is under valued right now and will finish the season as a top 20 SP.

Is Viciedo and Romero an overpay for Gallardo? I'd rather give him Smoak than Viciedo, but thoughts?

I don't think that is a bad offer. I don't have much faith that Viciedo will stay this productive and would be looking to deal him while his value is still at a tradeable level.

I have just as much faith in Vicedeo as I do in Smoak, I think they're both sell high candidates right now, so if you can package one of them with Romero for Gallardo I would definitely do it.

If you can get Gallardo for Romero and Smoak, I think that would be a GREAT deal for you. I'm honestly not a big fan of Romero in fantasy purely because he pitches in the AL East, he's a good pitcher but he isn't an ace quite yet. And I like Viciedo a lot more then Smoak this year. Viciedo has a ton of potential and is in a hitters ballpark, whereas Smoak has to hit in spacious Safeco field.
