Dyansty Kuroda trade. Making a playoff run WHIR!!!

Postby BChinly » Wed Aug 07, 2013 3:13 pm

I'm in a 6X6 (OPS/HLD) 25 player 20 team league where you keep 22 players each year. Top 6 make playoffs and I'm 6 games behind 6th place. I recently just got offered Kuroda for Skaggs and Ruf and was wondering if I'm paying too much or if I should be looking for another pitcher instead. Note: Cliff Lee is on a bottom 3 team

I'm just worried Skaggs is going to be great in years to come

You're not paying enough for Kuroda! Biggest mistake people make in keeper leagues is worrying about years in the future. Sure, not trading a big part of next year's squad for some flotsam isn't a good move, but Kuroda is great now. By the time Skaggs is good, you would have contended for a playoff spot or championship this season and someone else will emerge as a keeper of Skaggs' caliber. Play for this season. Unexpected players will break out in the years to come!

Thanks man, I really needed someone to talk some sense into me like that. I always overvalue my young guys in this league

A few days late, but yeah, I'd do that trade. Kuroda helps now. Pitchers in particular have a tendency to flame out before they even start.
