Taking advantage of Votto injury. Can I get Gallardo?

Postby garretterik » Mon Jul 16, 2012 10:40 pm

I want to take advantage of the Votto injury. Guy in my league who had him was 5th and Votto was his whole offense.
I am second and need K, WHIP, and ERA.

Gallardo will give you high era and whip but he will be great with ks. If he does it for Rizzo in a non keeper league I would do it.

I think yeah, if you can make that deal, then great. I'm not so certain that you can get him for that. If not, he could use an upgrade on his utility slot with Francoeur in there, so you might be able to package him with Freese.

Agree with this post here. Gallardo will drive you up the wall as an owner. Lots of potential, but staying away from jams is his downfall.

If you can pull it off with Rizzo, definitely do it.

Seems to be your best direction....
