Simmons for The Allen Wrench

Postby kab21 » Sat Mar 09, 2013 9:53 pm

24 tm dynasty - H2H pts

Getting a long term SS would be a huge get but I have this man-crush on Allen Craig. I actually have more depth at SS than OF but Scutaro and YEscobar are either old or not that great. Simmons has looked great playing for the Netherlands in the WBC. A lot of solid contact.

Reasons for:
long term SS
Craig is injury prone

Reasons against:
Simmons looks to have average fantasy ceiling
Craig is awesome when healthy

I wish that you could get more for Craig than just Simmons, as one has proven some MLB ability versus the other in a shortened season. It's hard to convince someone to trade away their 'man-crush', but if you've got power support and need help with AVG/runs, then I like the trade. With Craig, it's hard to see above the hype and excitement that he has built up. But if you are thinking long term in a dynasty, Simmons makes a lot of sense.

just as a clarification - it's a H2H pts league. I'm also angling for a prospect like Tyrell Jenkins but he's only a borderline top 100 guy (with upside).

I'm not sold on Simmons, he's not Starlin Castro.

Craig is too good when he's healthy.

Yeah I pass as well. Craig will just outscored Simmons by too much to warrant a trade. I would roll with Scutaro and Escobar for the time being, until you find that right offer.

Craig is too good of a player to move for Simmons, you should be fine @ SS this season, but start looking for a rookie sooner or later

What is available in FA?
I would dump Escobar.

It's a 24 tm league. Every player with a starting job is rostered.
