Fernandez for Granderson??? (WHIR)

Postby trifecta » Wed Jul 31, 2013 5:30 pm

I'm in a Roto league with standard categories but including OPS. I know Jose Fernandez is getting shut down so I'm thinking about getting rid of him for a HR bat. Should I trade him for Granderson? Or can I get someone better?

It's a good idea to trade Fernandez now when he's hot and before he gets shut down. I think Granderson is a decent return for him. Just coming off the DL his value is still lower so maybe try to get a SP back also in a package.

Thanks for the help. I think I'm going to offer Fernandez for BJ Upton too. I'm a Braves fan so I have hope he's gonna turn things around.

I would definitely target Granderson over Upton. Upton is completely lost at the plate

Granderson over Upton for sure. But you have to remember Granderson is just starting his season when everyone else is in midseason form. Dont expect him to do well right away

Dont trade him for Upton! I would prefer to take a flier on Granderson. Offer Fernandez up to the rest of the league and see if someone makes a better offer.

Please tell us you aren't serious about offering him for Upton. :-t I would rather have a dead spot in pitching than even own Upton. Pure Garbage. Don't even consider Upton. Anybody and I mean anybody on the wire is better.

I also like that move. I think getting good bats is better than pitching, as you can usually find decent pitching with good matchups. In this case, even more, given the likely shutdown. Target Granderson. See what happens.

Can you help me? viewtopic.php?t=463791

BJ also does his best work in September - so keep that in mind and our minor league hitting guru spent a lot of time on his rehab assignment working with him one on one and according to reports I"m reading that time was well worth it. (What I mean is that someone finally broke through to him and got him to listen.) I find it almost laughable that someone has BJ rostered though...if the same guy owns both BJ and Granderson maybe you could consider moving Fernandez for both of them.
