Simmons for Gregg???? WHIR

Postby joeyg2323 » Thu May 16, 2013 3:08 pm

im a little bias being a braves fan and think of the world of Simmons but isnt really a need for my team so i need help from the Fantasy baseball world!

My league is a 14 team keeper league 3rd year 5x5 h2h

Trade is
Anderlton Simmons(SS) for Kevin Gregg(CP)

MY team
c- salty
1b- looney (Fraizer when he comes back to earth)
2b- cano
3b- Machado
ss- segura
of- Ichiro, marte Harper
ult- Middlerbrooks, Arendo
b- Fraizer (playing of with harper hurt and usually have in lineup playing the hot bat looney)
dl- Heyward, reddick

SP- Felix, Minor, burnett, pettitte, estrada, helickson, teheren DL- Beachy
RP- Wilhemson, Reed, Mujica, Gregg


Here are some things i thought about

1) I honestly dont think is the closer 2 months from now
2) Looney is not going to keep up hitting like this prolly so i dont think his on my team a month or 2 from now
3) Heyward coming back on friday(Dont need to drop anyone only have 2 DL spots so his sitting on my bench)
4) Reddick is possible out 2 months
5) Arendo dont know if he'll be in the majors all year long but love him playing in colordo

Still the biggest problem is im a huge Braves fan and want Simmons on my team

Would i be making a mistake if i accept the trade?

Thanks for helping on mine....

Obviously, you don't need Gregg. Reed and Wilhelmson are both secure and will pile up lots of saves. Mujica sits just a notch below for now.

What will you do with Simmons? If you need to play him, then I see the trade as a no-brainer. If he sits on your bench, then I'm not so sure about it. I don't think you'll ever want to play him over Segura. How many closers do the other teams have? I think the whole thing comes down to whether you need Gregg's saves or not.

Hope this helps. Thanks again.

Simmons is a long-term valuable SS. Gregg is a short-term solution for a Cubs team that, to be honest, won't be in too many save opportunities this year. I'd say Gregg gets 18-20 saves this year.

If this were my team, and I want to play Simmons, I'd accept the trade, and see what I can get for Segura.

Good luck!

Id personally pass, Segura looks like the real deal, especially since its a keeper league. You dont need the trade. If anything i would look to add Gregg in a trade for a player u need if you need anything at all.

Yeah I would pass -- Gregg just doesn't seem like the answer. Maybe shop Simmons elsewhere see if you can get a trade of greater value -- especially with Segura at SS it seems like you could spare him for the right price.

I read it the same way at first as well. The writer has Gregg, and was offered Simmons for Gregg.

Yeah thanks my mistake :-X

In that case it depends on how badly you're in need of saves -- Gregg has value if that's the case. If not you can sit Simmons on the bench and see if he gets hot maybe flip him for something you need later on. Or trade Segura as previously mentioned.
