Who to drop for Jose Valverde? WHIR!

Postby killahurtz » Wed Apr 24, 2013 2:22 am

Who would you drop? Mous or Etheir? I'm not happy with either player.

Who else have you got for closers? It really depends on your roster because at this point I don't see much reason to drop either. Moose would be the call but you'd have to need saves badly and have 3B to spare.

I wouldn't make the move. You already have two solid closers and Veras, while unimpressive, carries as much value as Valverde at this point. I would OK with dropping Moose for somebody, but Valverde just isn't worth it. Closers come and go so quickly, it doesn't matter that Valverde had a great 2011, he was mediocre at best in 2012 and collapsed at the end. To think that he can come back at this point and dominate and/or hold off Rondon isn't feasible to me. I would only drop really useless players for him, not guys like yours who do actually carry some value/potential. I wouldn't call you a fool for dropping Moose for him, but I do not recommend it.

Maybe Rendon for him, but you don't really need him I'd probably just sit tight for now.
