My Darvish/Rizzo/Minor for Gio/Cespedes? WHIR

Postby goldallinmypayne » Wed Apr 24, 2013 11:24 am

I give..
Yu Darvish
Anthony Rizzo
Mike Minor

I get..
Yoenis Cespedes
Gio Gonzalez
+ I get my choice of Howie Kendrick/Jean Segura/Pat Corbin

My thinking is that Yu has dominated Seattle and Houston, so that ERA is gonna have to jump at some point right? Now is the time to pounce on Gio, perfect buy low opportunity, plus Rizzo/Minor for Cespedes and one of those 3 guys, seems good, right?

My team..
C- W. Rosario
1B- Pujols
2B- Altuve
3B- Lawrie (Hanley on DL)
SS- Desmond
OF- J-Upton, Trout, Stanton
UTIL- B. Butler, Encarnacion, Fowler
BENCH- Middlebrooks, Rizzo, Gattis

SP- Darvish, Wainwright, M. Moore, Minor, Harvey, Sabathia, Halladay, Shelby Miller
RP- Romo, Holland, Grilli

Should I pull the trigger? If so, which of the 3 should I have included?

any help is appreciated.

thanks!

Darvish/Gio is close but you have to give the edge to Yu. Yes, he has dominated Houston and Seattle, but he gets to keep dominating them, they're in his division!


Rizzo for Cespedes is close as well, I would say edge to Cespedes but VERY slight because of his injury/uncertainty and Rizzo's upside.


Minor for any of the guys listed is a loss for you as Minor is showing himself to be a great arm and should win games with the Atlanta offense behind him.

In the end, I don't think I would make this deal.

I assume your league is pretty shallow given your roster. IMO Darvish is the best player in that deal and in shallow leagues I don't like giving up the best player. Especially when you consider that your offense is already pretty stacked at the positions that the guys you would be acquiring play. Why give up pitching for that?
