Trade Shelby Miller for G. Balfour? 12 team h2h?

Postby mcdablo » Tue Apr 02, 2013 10:47 pm

Hey and thanks for checking out this post. SO should i trade unproven SHelby Miller for Grant Balfour? I only have two closers and in my league you really need 3 to win the category. And the rest of my closers aren't really solid. This is a 12 team h2h 5x5 league, standard categories. The rest of my team is:

C: Mauer
1b: Encarnacion
2b: Uggla
3b: Middlebrooks
SS: Andrelton Simmons
OF: Stanton
OF: Ellsbury
OF: Nelson Crus
OF: Carl Crawford
Util: Morse
Util: Reddick
DL: Hanley

SP: Strasburg, Shield, Lester, Hellickson, Detwiler, Worley, Miguel GOnzalez, Shelby Miller, Josh Beckett
RP: Glen Perkins, Steve Cishek
DL: Brandon Beachy

Thanks for the help in advance.

In a redraft league, I would be okay dealing Miller... if Balfour is the best you can do, I'd at least consider it. I'd want someone safer, maybe but I don't think Miller is going to dominate and will likely have his ups and downs.

Assuming a redraft I make this deal. I like Shelby's potential but it may be a bumpy ride for now. Fill your closer need.
