Trade Axford / punt saves?

Postby Knights » Sat May 10, 2014 11:43 am

In my 16-team 6x6 H2H league, my starting pitching is in shambles right now, and other than my top 3 guys (Bumgarner, Lee, Lohse), I don’t really have confidence in any of them long-term.

My closers are also struggling – Axford may or may not keep his job, Farnsworth is Farnsworth, and Broxton is losing his job any day now. I’ve stashed Jesse Crain, but he’s not guaranteed to close.

I’m thinking of punting saves for a bit and using my current closers to try to upgrade my SP before my closers have no value at all. I’d still stash Crain on my DL and see what happens when he come back.

My question is, what can I get for my closers – Axford specifically? Closing is at a premium in a 16-team league, so I’m wondering if I should try to get 2 middle-tier SP for him as opposed to shooting for someone higher (who presumably the other owner wouldn’t give up for a struggling closer).

What about Axford for Jon Niese and Drew Hutchison. Would that be selling Axford short if he were to get his groove back?

I’m stuck going back-and-forth in my mind. Any help would be appreciated!

Here’s my roster:
C A.J. Pierzynski Bos - C
1B Adrián González LAD - 1B
2B Dustin Pedroia Bos - 2B
3B Anthony Rendón Was - 2B,3B
SS Hanley Ramírez LAD - SS
LF Martín Prado Ari - 2B,3B,LF
CF Shin-Soo Choo Tex - LF,CF
RF Drew Stubbs Col CF,RF
UTIL Wilmer Flores NYM - 3B
BN Jay Bruce Cin – RF DL
BN Aramis Ramírez Mil - 3B
BN Emilio Bonifacio ChC - 2B,3B,LF,CF
DL Carlos Quentin SD - LF
NA Grégory Polanco Pit - CF

SP Madison Bumgarner SF - SP
SP Cliff Lee Phi - SP
SP Kyle Lohse Mil - SP
SP Hiroki Kuroda NYY - SP
RP John Axford Cle - RP
RP Jonathan Broxton Cin - RP
P Kyle Farnsworth NYM - RP
BN Travis Wood ChC - SP
BN Alfredo Simón Cin - SP,RP
BN Tim Lincecum SF – SP
DL Jesse Crain Hou - RP

I do not think Axford has a ton of value as he has been struggling lately

Honestly you probably can't get anything for Axford. He got demoted. Maybe if you have bench room put him there and hope he turns the year around, but unlikely. Sorry man.
