Hart & Reimold for Butler & Boesch

Postby ramble2 » Mon May 07, 2012 2:49 pm

I've been offered Hart & Reimold for Bulter & Boesch, and am looking for advice on whether (a) to take it; (b) to counter asking for a closer in place of Reimold; or (c) bail on the deal.

I'm a huge fan of Butler, perhaps more than warranted. I think he's good for .300, and this year looks to be one he adds a bit more power to that average. I love having him as my UT, and can shift him to 1B if I need to move Miggy to 3B.

At the same time, I'd like to add some depth and quality to my OF. Cuddyer is okay for my 3rd OF, and Hunter can fill in for now, but I'm feeling a bit susceptible to injury there. Boesch isn't putting up numbers warranting starting in my league, so I'm happy to move him. Or I could try to get a closer instead of Reimold. Because closers have blown up this year, and why not keep torturing myself.

Our teams are below. What do you think? Hart and Reimold would end up slotting into my OF and UT spots, swapping with Cuddyer when he's at home and whomever else is hot. I'd probably drop Hunter, opening up a roster spot. A good move for me?

Well, I am not wild about Boesche, but I think I prefer Butler to Hart and Reimold is currently on the DL.
