Enough for Fernando Rodney? WHIR

Postby jasonpm311 » Sun Aug 12, 2012 5:08 pm

I give up: Fernando Rodney

I get: A.J. Burnett and Chase Headley

Is that enough in return for Rodney, who's obviously been one of the best closers all season? I have five closers, though, in a 12-team league, and need some starting pitching. Plus, I have Chris Johnson at 3rd, and who knows how long he'll keep it up. Thoughts? Thanks!

I think it is. I'm a believer in Burnett this year, he is legit.

Seems fair, but what does it leave you with RP wise?

Leaves me with Jansen, Rafael Soriano, Greg Holland, and Dale Thayer in a 12-team league.

If someone will give you that, sure. I am not a Burnett believer, but HEadley has been a monster of late and you have saves covered. Just beware the 2 IP 10 ER blow up Burnett is due for.

Combine my fear of a Burnett blowup (or blowups) with San Diego having so many of its September games either at home or in pitcher-friendly parks, and I actually think I'm going to take it off the table. Headley's been good, but, if his numbers dip in September, I could conceivably do just as well scouring the waiver wire. It's a 12-team mixed league, where one or two guys have already started to only half pay attention with football starting.

If you have enough other closers then I would definitely do this. That is enough for Rodney.
