Big Braun Deal whir

Postby ryetoast93 » Wed Jun 01, 2011 10:54 pm

I am adopting a new strategy in my league. I'm trading away all of my starters and getting decent relievers for them from almost each team, ensuring I win saves and am very competitive in ERA and WHIP. Relievers are not hard to get in trades and are very cheap in my league, but just about every closer and really good setup guy is owned (Venters, Balfour, I think even Fernando Rodney is owned). Thus, I can trade some of my very good staff and get bats AND closers. With that in mind, here is the deal:

My: Halladay, Cain, Sizemore
His: Braun, Madson, and Santana/Montero

I want to put Weiters on the bench, get a great bat in Braun, and a solid closer in Madson. Contreras is available so I would probably handcuff the two for all of Philly's save opps.

Also, which catcher do you prefer!?
Dont forget to post links, I'll respond as soon as I can.

I'd prefer to have Braun, Madson, and Santana.

I think its a solid strategy but Halladay and Cain might be a bit too much..I guess it depends on how you look at it but again if that's the strategy you're going with then I would definitely take Santana over Montero and also I like the idea of Contreras and Madson..I like what I've seen from Madson so far, especially being a Phils fan, I love it!! Good luck and thanks for the help with mine! ;-D
