Wright + for Encarnacion & Bruce

Postby RaisinBraun » Sun Jul 15, 2012 1:05 pm

Hey guys, I'm currently sitting tied for 1st in my 12 team roto, one year league. I'm a little hesitant to deal someone of Wright's caliber, especially considering how balanced my team seems to be across all categories. I need a boost in HRs though, so I countered a proposal for Wright with the following:

David Wright, Chris Davis, Stephen Strasburg

For

Edwin Encarnacion, Jay Bruce, Yovani Gallardo

Is it realistic to expect E5 to maintain his pace? Wright has been a stud so far in every cat, and I'm thinking the power is going to slowly come on for him. The key here is Strasburg nearing the end of his inning's cap, and me getting a quality starter in return. Obviously my average is going to take a hit too, but is it worth sending this offer?

Here's my team:

C- Matt Wieters
1B- Pablo Sandoval
2B- Jason Kipnis
SS- Alcides Escobar
3B- David Wright
OF- Ryan Braun
OF- Shin-Soo Choo
OF- Ben Zobrist
Util- Freddie Freeman
BN- Tyler Colvin, Chris Davis

SP- Clayton Kershaw
SP- Stephen Strasburg
SP- Matt Garza
SP- Mat Latos
SP- Mark Buehrle
SP- Wandy Rodriguez
RP- Joel Hanrahan
RP- Rafael Betancourt
RP- Ryan Cook
RP- Addison Reed
DL- Brandon Beachy
DL- Drew Storen

Thanks!

I think I'd do this deal - should give you a pretty serious uptick in power, even if E5 slows down a tad, and at this point I think I'd rather have Gallardo ROS than Strasburg since it's still sounding highly likely he's gonna get capped at some point. I don't think it's like the greatest deal ever in a vacuum, but it addresses an area of need and I think it favors you by a hair in general as well.

Hope this helps ;-D
