James Shields/Ryan Madson for my Reyes/Casey Janssen *WHIR*

Postby goose in my step » Thu Jul 11, 2013 11:00 am

I was offered James Shields and Ryan Madson for my Jose Reyes and Casey Janssen. I need the pitching help but I'm not sure I'm willing to part ways with Reyes if its not for Strausburg or Kershaw. However, the owner isnt parting ways with either so he offered Shields instead. I tried to offer Bourn instead of Reyes but he isn't interested.
Or would you recomment to keep playing musical chairs with my pitchers. This is a weekly lineups league

I would definitely try switching Bourn for Reyes, it's worth a shot. Plus, with Madson still being on the DL, you lose a little value there anyway.

Well the good news is that Desmond has been solid at SS. That's not to say that you should just hand out Reyes for nothing, but if you really think Shields improves your pitching then moving Reyes won't kill you. I'm not surprised he didn't want Bourn instead...SS is a lot harder to fill in fantasy.

For the record, I don't think you'd be able to get Strasburg or Kershaw for Reyes. Shields-level might be as high as you can go. That said, I might marinade on the trade for a little bit, and see if you can nab a 1A type pitcher somewhere else. Like Darvish or Sale or one of those guys.

I would reject this trade fast, Janssen is gold and Madsen is garbage. Reyes and Jannsen is by a slight margin the winner here.

Someone will pay for Reyes and not want to give you a BS DL middle reliever. NO WAY.

No way I take this trade. I think you can get much better value from Reyes. I would rather stream pitchers than have to try to find a decent replacement for Reyes on the WW. Thanks for help on mine.
