I gave him Aroldis and he gave me back Weeks and Iwakuma? I have a guy who is really interested in Kinsler so I needed to secure some kind of 2B option to replace him with. Im gonna get a decent closer and top SP or batter as well for Kinsler
Active Batters McCann, Brian(C) ATL Santana, Carlos(1B,C) CLE Gonzalez, Adrian(1B) LAD Kinsler, Ian(2B) TEX Machado, Manny(3B) BAL Tulowitzki, Troy(SS) COL Cabrera, Everth(SS) SD Encarnacion, Edwin(1B) TOR Cruz, Nelson(OF) TEX Gordon, Alex(OF) KC Prado, Martin(3B,OF) ARI Ruggiano, Justin(OF) MIA Trout, Mike(OF) LAA Marte, Starling(OF) PIT
My thinking is the two deals in total may work out for you but I would've wanted a stronger 2nd piece back with Weeks in the first one. I don't think you got maximum value for Aroldis here but if you do well enough in the follow-up trade you may still end up stronger.
61* 70**73**762*** MVP****NL11,AL07,AL05,NL04,ALNL03,ALNL02,NL01,ALNL00,AL99,ALNL98,ALNL96 RIP Cammi Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
It probably would have been nice to pull a little bit better talent for Chapman, but...
1). You already have a lot of closers anyway, and 2). Iwakuma instantly becomes on of your best pitchers (Peavy, Greinke, Iwakuma, Latos are your top 4 now)
If this is a 10 team league, I'm a little confused how the back-end of your pitching is not any better. Maybe you loaded up on closers early and often? I'm looking at names like Bauer, Beckett, and Marcum as pitchers you may want to swap out for more potential-filled arms.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
