Zimmerman for Zobrist WHIR

Postby clarkdp2 » Fri Jun 08, 2012 11:29 am

I have been offered R. Zimmerman for my B. Zobrist should I make this trade. I have Zobrist/K. Johnson/Ackley all eligible at 2B and D. Wright and J. Bautista eligible at 3B. I can move Bautista to OF and put Zimmerman at IF.

Forgot to mention this is a 10 Team H2H Custom Points Keeper league where we keep 5 Players. Right now who would my keepers be?

C - A. Pierzynski
1B - F. Freeman
2B - K. Johnson
3B - D. Wright
SS - J. Reyes
IF - J. Bautista
OF - C. Gonzalez
OF - M. Bourne
OF - B. Harper
OF - D. Viciedo
Util - L. Duda
Bench - B. Zobrist
Bench - D. Ackley

SP - S. Strasburg
SP - S. Marcum
SP - M. Latos
SP - J. Beckett
SP - W. Rodriquez
RP - M. Moore
RP - E. Frieri
RP - J. Valverde
Bench - M. Scherzer
Bench - T. Hanson

I think I would probably do this but I think you might need to turn around and flip one of your 3B for a upgrade at 2B. I don't particularly like the idea of relying on KJ or Ackley all year. I think I believe in Zimmerman more than Zobrist though.

Keepers:
Wright
Bautista
CarGo
Strasburg
Reyes

But this could change. If Harper continues to produce, then I think you have to keep him.

For starters your keepers are:

Strassburg
CarGo
Joey Bats
Reyes
Harper (Close between him and Wright, but assuming you can keep without restrictions, you'll be happy for YEARS)

I would make the deal, just based on Zimmerman have a little bit more upside than Zobrist...both are guys I don't love though.

If Zimmerman is healthy, I much prefer him to Zobrist. More consistent.
