Drop Rizzo for Fowler? 100% WHIR!!!

Postby WhipperSnappers44 » Thu Jul 19, 2012 7:18 am

Ok everyone....some time back I showed a list of some guys on my WW in one of my leagues and Fowler was there and everyone said "WHAT" and that I should scoop him up but I doubted the advice givers...well looking at his STATS he has been pretty darn good and I think I want to take everyone up on their advice but just don't know how to get it done....please help and as always...100% WHIR!

I would like....I mean "LOVE" to be able to make a trade in this league but #1 it's real hard to trade with these people and #2 I am bad with making trades that will entice other players (they always favor me) so if anyone can see a surefire deal I can propose that would be super helpful! (possibly an SP I think would be the best course of action and then I can grab Fowler with the free spot....like a 2 for 1 or 3 for 1)

My Team:

C - C.Santana
1B - Miggy Cabrera
2B - A.Craig
3B - E.Encarnacion
SS - I.Desmond
OF - Curtis Granderson
OF - H.Pence
OF - J.Kubel
Uti - A.Jackson
Uti - M.Teixiera
Bench - T.Plouffe
Bench - B. Zobrist
Bench - A. Rizzo
Bench - K.Youk


Pitching:

SP - G.Gonzales , RA Dickey , T.Hanson , A.Sanchez , P.Hughes , AJ Burnett , S.Marcum(DL)
RP - J.Johnson , F.Rodney , S.Casilla


Now I was thinking of either just straight dropping Rizzo for Fowler (but I really like Rizzo but don't really need his position but I think he could be a diamond but has slipped a little since the AS break) or packaging him and another 1-2 players for a top arm and then grab Fowler. Or should I just let Fowler sit on the WW?

I know most might say to trade Kubel but I really love him this year and the dude is straight hitting (came back after sitting a couple days and cracked 2 long balls)....so I was thinking of packaging something out of this group (Rizzo, Pence, AJAX , Youk, Hughes , Anibal)....so what to do? Txs for the help in advance and post yours if you need help.

Txs for the reply...I agree on that as well but then I would only have 5 starting pitchers and 5 bench offensive guys which would kill me...any other options....maybe for a trade idea that I could throw in or not throw in Hughes but possibly get a stud SP so throwing away Hughes wouldn't hurt so bad? Txs again and WHIR anyone that needs!

Here is a list of available SP's and Offensive FA's also if it matters any.....

Off FA: D.Fowler, L.Berkman, C.Rasmus, N.Walker, A.Ramirez(SS), R.Weeks, N.Markakis, C.Young, C.Lee, JP Abrencibia, D.Murphy(NYM), C.Davis, P.Alverez, W.Rosario

SP FA: J.Parker, F.Liriano, B.McCarthy, S.Diamond, T.Milone, J.Samard, C.Zambrano, B.Sheets

Txs again for the help!

***On a side note I just offered up this deal to the last place team in the league...what do you all think?***

I give: B.Zobrist+H.Pence+P.Hughes

He gives: R.Cano+F.Hernandez (then I could grab Fowler with the extra spot)

I know he might not go for it but he is in last place and has been making some crazy moves on the WW so you never know....should I stick with the trade? Take it down and stay with who I have? Any help is appreciative and I will help you 100%...txs all!

BTW...I think I forgot to mention it but this is a 12 Team H2H (non-keeper redraft league) 10 CAT and I am currently and have been in 1st place since the start of the season.

Txs again everyone!

When in first place, it is tougher for me to trade as my thoughts are if it is not broke, then why fix it (unless I am getting a very good value). That being said, the alternative trade posted above with you getting Cano/FHer is good value for you as the winner in the trade. So, the worst he can do is say no or counter.
