Quick Help! Rutledge for Hellickson?

Postby Knights » Tue Aug 07, 2012 11:45 am

My roster is below… 16-team H2H keeper league. Currently in 6th (6 make the playoffs), and the 7th place team is looking for a SS.

I’m tempted to try to sell high on Josh Rutledge before he comes too far back down-to-earth.

My team needs SP – would Rutledge for Jeremy Hellickson be a good deal for me if I can pull it off? I could ask for Chad Billingsly instead, but I think I might prefer Hellickson.

Here's my roster:
C Jonathan Lucroy (C)
1B Anthony Rizzo (1B)
2B Dustin Pedroia (2B)
3B Brett Lawrie (3B)
SS Hanley Ramirez (3B, SS)
LF Matt Joyce (LF, RF)
CF Carlos Beltran (CF, RF)
RF Kendrys Morales (1B, RF)
UTIL Josh Rutledge (SS)
BN Justin Ruggiano (LF, CF, RF)
BN Chris Young (CF)
BN Russell Martin (C)
BN Jim Thome (UTIL) DL (dropping him shortly)

SP James Shields
SP Mike Minor
SP Johnny Cueto
SP Homer Bailey
RP Santiago Casilla
RP Tom Wilhelmson
P David Robertson
BN Heath Bell
BN Matt Garza DL
DL Andrew Cashner DL
DL Jaime Garcia DL

I can't imagine he'll give up any decent pitcher for Rutledge, as he's only there filling in for Tulo another month maybe, but if you can sell him, do it while you can.

I think this is a good trade and I think he'll bite. Colorado has some serious injury issues and uncertainty all over the place. Rutledge will play an every day 2B at worst once Tulo returns, if he returns. Hellickson on the other hand, you know what you are getting. Do it!
