Get Hanrahan?

Postby Knights » Wed Aug 08, 2012 4:10 pm

I've been offerend Joel Hanrahan and a 10th Round Pick for my 4th Round Pick in a 16-team, 6x6 keeper league where we keep 6 players each year.

I'm currently in 6th place, and the top 6 make the playoffs... but I'm really hanging on from a very hot start as my team has been sputtering down the stretch. I don't want to give up too good of a draft pick for a closer who won't be kept, so I have to figure out if I have a team that can contend this year before sacraficing picks... and then determine how high of a pick I want to give up.

Given my roster below, do I have the talent to make a strong run in the playoffs? And if so, what type of draft picks should I counter-propose, as I will not give up a 4th rounder for a closer.

A different owner has Valverde on the block, if that would be a better target?

Personally, I don't think your squad is good enough to get very far. Lawrie just hit the DL which means you should move Hanley to 3B and Rutledge to SS and stick Ruggiano in the UTIL spot.

I would say no to the deal just because it might help in a couple categories, but I still can't see this team getting past the first round of the playoffs, with or without Hanrahan.
