Standard 5 x 5 12 team h2h

I trade: Mark Texiera and Joe Mauer
I receive: Jered Weaver Buster Posey


I trade: Mark Texiera, Jim Johnson
I receive: Jered Weaver, Jonathan Papelbon

I figure I get an ugrade long term at closer. JJ doesnt strike anyone out.

I am kind of desperate for pitching. He said he liked Mauer but would not do it straight up for Weaver. I feel like my team's biggest needs are HRs and SBs, but now with Colby Lewis and C.C. on the DL I need SP.

I have an abundance of closers but they dont seem to have as much value as they should on the open market.

Side note: I only want 3 SPs to rotate. You need 25 innings min for the week. So if I get Weaver, I will have C.C., Price, Lewis, Weaver. I could maybe trade C.C. for Giancarlo Stanton or Andrew McCutchen. He said he would if the guy rejects his Stanton for Gio Gonzalez offer. You would rather have C.C. long term, right?

Anyways, here is my team. Post your link so I can help you plz

I would take the first deal, as Posey is a better fantasy catcher over Mauer. Weaver is a lock-down ace, and you could really use the pitching help. Tex is so-so, and could get hot, but the price is right here.
