Just Traded Valverde for Shields. Good move?

Postby millini » Mon May 06, 2013 10:39 am

I just pulled the trigger on an offer of thier sheilds for my valverde. I figured i was selling high on valverde and even though he's a closer on a good team, that shields was more valuable.

My pitching staff before:

SP: Kershaw, Gio Gonzalez, Cliff Lee, Maholm, Cashner, Gallardo, Lohse
RP: A. Reed, JJ Putz, Jim Johnson, Valverde.

10 team 5X5 head to head. How did i do?

I like the move. Strengthens your SP even further and although hell probably get some saves you still have Reed Putz and Johnson.

help?

Wow you don't usually see a lot of trades like that, but good deal for you.

Great deal. Closers are usually overvalued. Shields is good, and Valverde could always lose his job in a month.

Help with mine?
