BIG offer! My Rizzo for CarGo, keeper league

Postby KaPluie » Thu Jul 12, 2012 9:38 am

I'm in a keeper league, and was just offered CarGo for my Rizzo. Rizzo will be a 21st round keeper next year, and CarGo a 2nd round keeper. But obviously CarGo really improves my chances of competing this year. What do you think?

I would take CarGo.

Cargo Hamilton & Lawrie would make for 3 nice keepers.

Cargo, even with the draft spots. He could easily be the best player in the game for years to come.

Take CarGo and run! Rizzo is off to a hot start, but he has a grand total of TWELVE major league games to his name. You have NO IDEA how he's going to fare over the long term.

Take CarGo without a doubt, regardless of draft slot, as others have said he's a proven stud and Rizzo's sample size is too small to draw any conclusions about his future. Accept before he changes his mind! (and pray it doesn't get vetoed)

Why can't I ever get offered trades like that. CarGo is fantasy gold and worth a (1). Take it and run.

He's out of the playoffs, trying to retool with picks and low-draft-pick keepers. Yeah, Keeping Rizzo as a last round keeper for the next three years might work out for him. CarGo can only be kept for one more year. I'm still taking the deal though.

Yeah I was gonna say, this would get shot down in a matter of seconds in my league.

Accept while the other guy still hasn't got a brain.
