Give Rizzo for Strausburg?....WHIR!

Postby jonboycubs » Mon Jun 17, 2013 7:03 pm

16 team h2h cats up to 9 keeper league

r,hr,rbi,sb,avg...k,w,sv,hd, era, whip

I GET - STRAUSBURG, GARRET COLE, MIKE ZUNINO, AND MITCH MORELAND

I GIVE- RIZZO, KENLEY JENSEN, JAYSON HAYWARD, AND MARK MELANCON
I am really thinking I should take this offer as it would give my pitching a nice boost. I do lose first, get a decent producer back in Moreland, it will also give my only closer and a good hold guy, but I am playing for next year and took over this team this year and working on a rebuild, any opinions would help thanks and leave a link, I can also play Posey at first and stick Zunino at catcher if need be. I was trying to get Justin Upton in the deal, but that may be pushing it, so this may be the one to take

MY TEAM

POSEY
RIZZO
PROFAR
BELTRE
CASTRO

I wouldn't take this trade. Rizzo is the shit. and Heyward is not far behind.

Thanks for help with mine.

Rizzo has been awful for the last month ... like jekyl and hyde season here. But Strasburg's injury concerns make me say no to this deal.

With no other decent 1b on your roster no.
If you want to rebuild offer up Beltre and see what you can get.

Build around Posey, Profar, Rizzo, Castro, Heyward, possibly Blanks, D-Loc, Teheran, Ryu, Jansen
How many do you keep? With this you have decent young C, 1b, 2b, SS, 2 good young OF, 2 good young stud starters and a top 5 closer its a great start. Beltre does not fit into your long-term plans. Maybe offering up Castro+Beltre can land you Segura+an early draft pick or two or something like that to help.

I would get rid of the following players: Darwin Barney, Jarrod Dyson, possibly even Torres (if you keep a large number of players say more than 12). I'd probably do it anyway and get younger and whatever..

I would look to trade Beltre+Castro+Dickey/Garza for Segura+early draft pick or ok young 3b (like IE hmmm maybe Machado) (that's a very fair offer if you ask me).
I would also look to move maybe Cliff Lee+Anthony Rizzo for a 1b upgrade. Shoot for a Chris Davis maybe. Do not go for

What prospects young players in FA?
