Buy low on Adrian Gonzalez? WHIR

Postby ROC AllStars » Wed Jun 13, 2012 8:18 pm

10 team points league, REDRAFT

Wondering if I should buy low on Adrian. I would drop him in at OF. What would be a reasonable offer for him? His owner is weak at 3b and SP.


My roster:
C Wieters
1B MCab
2b Pedroia
3b Beltre
SS Reyes
OF Hamilton, Stanton, Upton, Craig (start 4)
Util: Freeman
Bench: ARod, Joyce, Aviles

SP Price, Peavy, Lester, JJohnson, Tim Hudson, Ryan Vogelsong, Matt Moore, Roy Oswalt
RP Chapman, Jansen, Soriano

DL Morrow, Crawford

If you want to start cheap, try A Rod and one of your lower SP.

Aviles can slide in at 2b. See if that gets him to bite and make a counteroffer.

Yeah, you can still get pretty good value in return for Rodriguez. Don't let him waste away on your bench. Try to get a great player in return if you can. If you can get Adrian Gonzalez for ARod, make that trade by all means.

I might start out low with one of your lower SP's and maybe Joyce or Aviles. Depends on how bad he needs that picthing. Start from there and see what he would come back with so you can see where his head is.
