Berkman and Carter for Grilli - feedback plz (whir)

Postby JJJur » Tue Apr 23, 2013 4:59 am

So this is a done deal. I'm doing well in my 10 team 5*5 Roto keeper league (4 keepers), currently in first place. Scoring points across the board.. just not on saves. I was already running low with Hanrahan. With him on the DL, it's looking even worse.

I decided to act now and struck a deal with a guy who is in last place and who needed everything except saves. I get his Grilli, and he asked for Berkman and Reddick. I like Reddick (cant miss his steals), so got him to take Carter instead. I figure that's a good thing since I expect Reddick to outperform Carter by some distance over the course of a full season.

So it's his Jason Grilli for my Lance Berkman and Chris Carter.

What are your thoughts on this? Always looking to learn and get other people's insights.

My take: currently scoring just 2 points on saves. Grilli and the return of Hanrahan should improve that quickly, given that most teams aren't that far ahead of me yet. Losing Berkman might lead to a drop in AVG, Im getting 6 points there now. Next team is pretty close, but the ones after that are pretty far away. Should not lose more than 1 or 2 points.

I like this. Grilli is 8 for 8, Berkman doesnt play every day, and i dont see anything that impresses me from Carter...nice move.

help me please?

Solid trade, it's not a slam dunk but you got an excellent closer on a decent team for a couple of HR or nothing kind of guys. Good work.
