My Pedroia/Beckett for Ichiro/Beckham

Postby Coach McGuirk » Thu Apr 14, 2011 2:37 pm

OK, so I left the draft with lots of power but no speed and I'm trying to work out a deal before I fall too far behind.

10 team league - I give Pedroia and Beckett while replacing Pedroia with Beckham in my MI spot. I get Ichiro, but would need to drop an OF - between Beltran and Span (most likely Beltran!) as I doubt I'd be able to get any value for them before Monday. I also get rid of Beckett and I have Ubaldo coming back so he was on the bubble to be dropped anyway, so I get value out of that. I think I can deal with the loss of Pedroia with my lineup.

C Santana C1
M Wieters C2
Cabrera 1B
Pedroia (2B)
A Cabrera (SS)
Weeks (MI)
M Young (3B)

I like it a lot since I can't stand Beckett or Pedroia. It looks like a good deal for you

i'd do that. ichiro isn't a 40+ steal guy but he's 30+ most likely, and i like beckham about as much as pedroia this year. beckett is better than his first two starts indicate, but you have ubaldo coming back so he's expendable
