Give Rodney, Get Floyd WHIR

Postby baegames » Sat Jul 07, 2012 9:56 pm

I have a 20 save lead in an AL Only league but need strikeouts.

Do I give Fernando Rodney, get Gavin Floyd?

He offered Floyd for Tom Wilhelmsen, I responded Matt Capps for Floyd. Do I offer Rodney?

So my reason for wanting Wilhelmsen over Rodney is twofold: (1) I am afraid Rodney will fall to earth soon. (2) Wilhelmsen is more likely to be the closer next year, and a better keeper.

Maybe offer Rodney for Floyd and something else?

I would take the Wilhelmsen one that he offered you. Rodney is better then him.

I have both of those RPs and I would take the first offer if you really want Floyd.
I'm a White Sox fan and I personally wouldn't want Floyd on my team. As for Rodney,
the guy has an ERA of like 0.98. There's no way I would trade him off especially for Floyd.

I would pass on Floyd altogether, but if you really want him, give Wilhelmsen instead of Rodney.

Can't help but feel Rodney should fetch more than Floyd. Try Wilhelmson first.

It sounds like people think I should get more for Rodney or Wilhelmsen than Floyd, is that correct?
