get wainright but punt saves??? WHIR! Thanks!

Postby driftwood012 » Tue Jul 02, 2013 6:27 pm

I have been offered adam wainright, and i give up ryan zimmerman and jason grilli.

obviosuly wainright is a stud. my pitching is solid, but no true ace. i don't mind giving up zimmerman because i can fill it with machado.

but giving up grilli would mean i am basically punting saves. is it worth it for wainright?

team below in sig. currently in 5th place out of 12.

I don't see your team in your sig. Need to know who else you have as closers. Also, want to see how your pitching is currently. I like Wainright if you need pitching. Closers pop up all year long on the waiver wire, but Grilli is among the best so far this year.

I would make this trade. You wouldnt have to completley punt saves with Gregg and Uehera. Just keep your eye out and youll be able to pick up a 3rd closer pretty soon. Wainwright gives you the ace that you need and you already have Machado at 3B. I would definitely do this trade.

To me, that's not really punting saves: that's making you weaker there, but you can always troll the wire for a third closer. Hell, pick up Melancon in case Grilli goes boom himself in Pitts, haha.

For me, you're selling your second best 3B for a true ace. Kudos. It's definitely more useful talent for your team overall.

Nice trade.

I agree, I would do that trade. You still have two closers and Wainwright is a top 5 pitcher at the very least. Like you said, you have Machado to replace Zimmerman as well.

I'd take this trade for sure. I like Machado more than Zimmerman and Wainwright is elite.
