Would I be completelt craze to make the following trade offer in my keeper league:
M. Rivera (saves)
M. Young (position flexibility....runs)
Coco Crisp (steals)
It's a 10-team, 5x5 roto keeper league.
We get to keep 10 players per season....no restrictions.
My current team is:
1b: P. Konerko, B. Butler
2b: B. Phillips
3b: J. Bautista, A-Rod
ss: T. Tulowitzki
of/util: C. Crawford, J. Hamilton, J. Upton, T. Hafner, A. Pagan
sp: T. Lincicum, C. Hamels, J. Gallardo, S. Marcum, M. Bumgarner, J. Cueto, J. Chacin
rp: D. Hernandez, A. Bastardo, M. Melancon, K. Gregg, B. Parnell, M. Adams, F. Rodriguez
note: we only get to start 3 RP's in our league....so my large collection of mediocre closers isn't doing me much good.
I am currently in 2nd place....but 1st place has a very large lead (but not insurmountable)......and 2nd place thru 6th place are all tightly grouped (only 8.5pts seperates 2nd and 6th place).
The categories I need the most help in are Runs, Steals and Saves. I also need to make up ground in ERA and WHIP.
Since this is a keeper league, I feel like I need to trade A-Rod to a team that is looking to improve their keepers. Would I be completely crazy to make the above trade offer? I know I am hurting my list of keepers for next year by giving away A-Rod for a closer and some role-players.....but am I helping myself enough this year to make it worthwhile?
Thanks in advance....of course, WHIR!!!
