Ichiro for Weeks???

Postby redn22 » Wed Apr 03, 2013 11:54 am

I've been offered Ichiro in exchange for Rickie Weeks.

I have an abundance of 2B eligible players with Pedoria, Prado, Rutledge and Weeks on my team. I think I need to improve on my OF, but I'll let you be the judge of that.

Of course there is always concern with the ageing Ichiro...

My team: (note - it was an autodraft for the entire league, I had 6th pick overall... Yes, I set my rankings, top 300...)
Yahoo 14 team 5X5 Roto (BA, HR, RBI, R, SB / ERA, W, S, K, WHIP)

C - C. Santana
1B - A. Pujols
2B - D. Pedoria
3B - M. Prado
SS - J. Rutledge
OF - A. Either
OF - J. Bradley Jr
OF - S. Choo
U - E. Encarnacion
U - R. Weeks

BN - C. Rasmus
BN - E. Nunez
BN - L. Cain
BN - A. Hicks
DL - A-Rod
DL - C. Headley

My other option would be to try and trade Weeks for one of his closers... As I do not have any closers. He has F. Rodney, J. Putz, R. Betancourt

Here's my pitching staff:
SP - J. Shields
SP - CJ Wilson
RP - D. Storen
RP - H. Iwakuma
P - J. Niese
P - A. Burnett
P - K. Loshe
P - B. McCarthy
BN - J. Teheran
BN - J. Fernandez

If you can offer me your perspective on both trade options (Weeks for Ichiro and Weeks for a closer)... I would be most grateful!

Thanks!

I'd target a closer. Ichiro isn't enough for me to trade Weeks.

While you could use an OF right now with Headley out, I don't think Ichiro is a good player to buy. Does he have anything else that might be more enticing?

In terms of OF, he has the following:

M. Kemp
J. Hamilton
A. Rios
M. Morse

He only has H. Kendrick and B. Roberts as his 2B players

Go for Morse. He'll likely be a bit undervalued after moving to Seattle. But he's got good power.
