* yea im not kidding when i say its slim pickings via the wire*
I sold high on Chris Davis and traded him away along with Felix Dubront and Xavier Paul in exchange for Michael Saunders, Oscar Taveras, Casey Jannsen, and Drew Storen.
I needed relief pitching, particularly SAVES. Im in a deep and extremely active 20 team roto league so coming across any players of note via the wire in my league is difficult enough. My thought process on this deal was i dont believe Chris Davis will be able to continue this torrid start throughout the season and i believe that i do have enough hitting to sustain the loss of Davis with Beltre, Trumbo, and Cespedes still on my roster. Plus getting Michael Saunders a 20/20 guy and Oscar Taveras for future purposes in return along with positions of need in a closer and a potential closer in Storen (since Rafael Soriano has already had some slip-ups early on this season) i am pretty satisfied about my deal.
However i cant help but feel nervous at the same time. Chris Davis just homered again and Michael Saunders was put on the DL -_- and alot of people in the league have been sounding off about it. Please can someone just reassure myself that i made the right move, people keep criticizing me in the league over things that happened last year when i was a novice saying its like last year all over again but ive studied up and really honestly believe i made the right move.
so just to update everyone who took the time and responded..
i put in a waiver claim and got Jurickson Profar and dropped Kevin Correja
The Chris Davis trade went through and i now have Casey Jannsen, Michael Saunders, Oscar Taveras, and Drew Storen on my roster. and Patrick Corbin with Michael Saunders DL stint freeing up a roster spot
Go figure the day after the trade goes through and i give up my hottest hitter, my roster is hit with injuries / demotions -__- with- Yoenis Cespedes and Wilson Ramos being put on the DL and Aaron Hicks continued struggles likely meaning hes going to be reassigned.. the only good thing from that was i was able to snag Tony Cingrani from the wire before anyone else had the chance to and that in itself especially in this league is a miracle.
Now i just have to buy some time and hope both Beltre and Trumbo and others can get hot in these next couple weeks to make my offense respectable till the rest of the gang comes back and rely on my pitching..Adam Wainwright helped me out alot today with a complete game shutout so i know ill be up in the rankings after today, plus it seems the trade in a way is paying off alittle with Casey Jannsen notching a save the first of the year for my team!!
All in all looking at it long term for the season i think im ok..of course theres always second guessing when it comes to making huge deals with a hot player but with profar, taveras, and cingrani all due to come up I'm set currently and for the home-stretch of the season i believe.
