Huff/Greinke for Gordon/Kimbrel? WHIR

I have Gordon/Kimbrel...

Who wins? Gordon/Kimbrel or Greinke/Huff?

(Gordon does not have 3B eligibility)

RP is pretty worthless in the pts league...Kimbrel (one of the best RPs) has pts similar to my worst SPs (G Gonzalez)

See my team in signature. We start 1 extra MI, 1 extra CI, 2 extra OF....only 5 Pitchers total.

Thanks.

Scoring is 1pt per single, 2 for double, etc...-1 KO, +1 SB....

Pitching is 10 pt for W, -5 L, +5 save, +1 K, -1 ER, +0.5/ INN

I think pulling back in Greinke in this deal is a great move for you; as certain ESPN fantasy analysts have said, Greinke is the "unluckiest" pitcher in the first half. A lot of the numbers point to Greinke having a great second half, and of course we all know he has a good bullpen backing him up, as well as a nice offense.

Huff will pull things around, I'm sure. He and Gordon are a wash, although Gordon provides a few SBs, but not a game-changing amount.

That's not too terrible of a gap, and Huff has played poorly while Gordon has been better than expected. I think those two point totals will be much closer by the end of the year.

I'd make this move. Huff has been underperforming and Gordon overperforming so they could even out, and Greinke is an obvious upgrade over Kimbrel. Go for it!

Thanks for the help with mine!

anyone else?

take the consistency of a closer or roll the dice with Greinke?

Will Gordon keep it up? will Huff turn it around?

You're not really rolling the dice with Greinke...it sounds like you're talking about someone who's never performed before and might not...Greinke is a former Cy Young winner. He's going to perform.
