Do I take this?

Postby Dooch » Sun Feb 03, 2013 3:27 pm

In a H2H (5 categories offense/pitching) 10 keeper league, I was offered Wieters ($13) for Motte ($11). I am of the belief that saves are the easiest category to find during the season (and I also have Rodney and Hanrahan as reasonably cheap keepers). Catchers are hard to find, obviously, so should I make this deal?

I rather have an $11 top closer than a $13 mid-tier catcher. 250 with low 20's HRs is good for a C, but not something I am paying $13 for. You can get a $1-3 C at the end of most auctions who will be sufficient.

C position is very deep this year; in 1 C leagues everybody gets a good 1 and theres good 1's in the FA pool too. If it is a 2 C league $13 is decent value, if it is a 1 C league its just OK. To me, both players fall into the 4-7 rankings at their positions

I'd keep Motte and dominate saves. Wieters isn't worth 13 bucks in my opinion.

please help

Your other two closer options are well shaky. Keep the closer trio.

Draft a Sal Perez, shoot even Brian McCann may come cheaply, AJP, Mike Napoli (should come cheap) etc types can be had in the draft for cheap.
