Usually I'm not the one to propose trades in my leagues, I usually let guys propose trades to me, but for some reason this time was different. Usually I ask the cafe about it first, and then take action, hope my gut feeling was right with this one, would love to hear if you guys think I made a good move.
Traded away my Matt Moore and Fernando Rodney for his Jon Lester, in a 12 Team 5x5 Standard H2H league Non-Keeper.
1. Rodney most likely won't keep the job, he's been horrible in the past and has been lucky this season, plus Farnsworth would most likely be closer when coming off the DL.
2. I had 5 closers going into the trade, Rodney was probably the worst of them all.
3. While I love Matt Moore's potential, I am not a true believer in him in his first full season just yet. I can see him dominating in future seasons though, but having similar first years to guys like Tim Lincecum and David Price, not exactly dominant, but okay for fantasy.
4. Trying to buy Lester low after his bad last outing
