Grienke for Adrian Gonzalez: ALL HELP RETURNED

Postby kaiser » Thu Jun 14, 2012 7:17 pm

Leave a link for help returned tonight.

10 team 5X5 non-keeper.

I am currently in fourth place, and it is my pitching that has been keeping me alive, because my offense has almost no power.

I have been looking to trade away SP in order to land a big bat. I have been offered the following:

I give Zach Grienke and Jimmy Rollins.

I get Adrian Gonzalez.

I would replace Rollins with one of the following FA 2B/SS:

D. Ackley
D. Murphy
Y. Escobar
D. Espinosa
A. Escobar
J. Weeks
E. Aybar
R. Roberts
Z. Cozart
R. Theriot
S. Drew

Make the deal? My roster:

C Miguel Montero, Ari C S
1B Paul Konerko, CWS 1B, DH S
2B Brian Roberts, Bal 2B
3B Mike Moustakas, KC 3B S
SS Jimmy Rollins, Phi SS S
2B/SS Rafael Furcal, StL SS S
1B/3B Brett Lawrie, Tor 3B
OF Justin Upton, Ari OF S
OF Ichiro Suzuki, Sea OF S
OF Hunter Pence, Phi OF S
OF Bryan LaHair, CHC, OF
OF Jordan Schafer, Hou OF
UTIL Billy Butler, KC DH S
P Justin Verlander, Det SP
P David Price, TB SP
P Brett Myers, Hou SP, RP
P Jim Johnson, Bal RP
P Anibal Sanchez, Mia SP
P Johnny Cueto, Cin SP
P Zack Greinke, Mil SP
P Brian Fuentes, Oak RP
P Addison Reed, CWS RP
Bench Madison Bumgarner, SF SP
Bench Max Scherzer, Det SP
Bench Colby Lewis, Tex SP
DL Jacoby Ellsbury*, Bos OF DL60

I like the deal for you, especially since there are numerous good options on the FA to replace Rollins.

I do think you are slightly overpaying for AGon though, because he is playing pretty poorly right now. I would try and see if he would take a little less before accepting this deal. Or depending on his roster, try and get someone else in return that could play SS for you.

Thanks for the help on mine.

Make the trade and add Ackley, while keeping an eye on Cozart.

Does including Rollins solidify the deal? I feel like a gon for greinke straight up would be better, but with espinosa and lackey available on waivers, I'd go for it.
