Greinke for Heyward? Keeper

Postby lbblue » Sun Jun 24, 2012 10:18 pm

12 team 6 x 6 roto league 5 keepers

Long story short: we keep 5 and at least one has to be a pitcher. I'd much rather keep 4 bats and 1 pitcher (last year kept 3 bats and 2 pitchers). Pretty much out of contention this year because of injuries and general bad luck. I'm keeping Strasburg as my pitcher and also have Wainwright as an option if I move Greinke. Tulo, Kinsler, and Ellsbury will be kept (and fingers crossed) but outside of that only have Desmond Jennings as a potential offensive keeper. He has a lot to prove before I decide to keep him.

Heyward's owner is in last and is looking for a keeper pitcher. Offer Greinke for him? Do you guys believe Heyward's recent hot streak is a sign of things to come or just a hot streak?

I think Greinke is more valuable.. but if you only keep one pitcher, and you've already got that locked down, and you're out of it.. I suppose taking a shot at Heyward wouldn't be bad.

I kind of think Heyward is overrated, but he's young enough that he could still be putting it together. It's worth a shot. Unless you can get something better for Greinke?


Help with mine?

I've tried to get more for Greinke. Everyone in contention wants him but don't have a truly keeper-worthy offensive player they can afford to/are willing to part with. I wouldn't keep Greinke over Strasburg and, like I said, have Wainwright who is a backup plan if Jennings and Heyward fail to put together good seasons (assuming Wainwright does, but I'm confident he will).
