Input Needed on this Blockbuster

Postby Roberto Clemente » Mon Mar 28, 2011 3:09 pm

Any input on how I did would be appreciated.

Play in a Yahoo Keeper League. 8 by 8 scoring including Total Bases and Holds.

I traded Felix Hernandez, Neil Walker and Hiroki Kuroda for Dan Uggla, Joakim Soria and Trevor Cahill.

My take...It hurt to trade King Felix, but I got a major upgrade in Uggla...and Soria is one of the top Closers in baseball which gave me by far the best set of Closers in our League. I also got Cahill who had a very good season last year. Kuroda was just a throw-in I was going to drop anyways. So it was basically a 3 for 2 trade.

My roster is below...thanks is advance for any input on how I did.

I don't hate it but I don't think I would have made the deal. I like Felix a lot and you hurt your rotation by losing both Felix and Kuroda (who is underrated in a lot of ways). I am not a fan of closers in general and will usually have the bottom tier ones or look to grab one of the WW. Too many times have I been burned after grabbing the two best closers in the game (Broxton last year, K-Rod in NY and a few others). The upgrade to 2B is nice though and Cahill is a nice throw in, kind of think he should be valued a little more than that. So like I said, a fair deal but not one I personally would have done.
