Tex for Bruce and Motte.....need help

Postby jtwise » Wed Aug 15, 2012 12:07 pm

I am in 1st place in a 14 team roto keeper (we keep 5) with OBP instead of AVG. I was just offered the following deal and I am having a difficult time determining if I want to accept:

Mark Teixeira (I would drop McDonald)


Jay Bruce and Jason Motte

Two things for me to think about in this deal:
*How much of a downgrade is Bruce from Tex for this year?
*Whose the better keeper....Tex or Bruce?

I don't really need saves as I currently lead that category but I am pushing up against IP limit for season so need to think about getting solid contributions for every IP and Motte could help there in ratios and Saves.

Any thoughts would be appreciated! WHIR

Here is my team:
C - Mauer
1B - Tex
2B - Kipnis
3B - Headley
SS - A. Cabrera (I. Desmond - DL)
MI - Rutledge (Plouffe - DL)
CI - LaRoche
OF - Kemp, Trout, Choo, Ross, Belt
Util - Moreland
P - Strasburg, Kuroda, Latos, Dickey, Miley, Hudson, McDonald, Jim Johnson, R. Soriano, K. Jansen, A. Reed (A. Bailey - DL)

No way. You're stacked in the RP department, so no need for Motte, and Tex is a whole tier better than Bruce.
