Nelson Cruz for Dee Gordon. (KEEPER) WHIR

Postby SpecialFNK » Sat Aug 09, 2014 9:29 am

16 team keeper league, keep 5. yahoo, roto, 5x5.

give- Nelson Cruz (34yo), Derek Jeter (throw in to cover him at SS, not important)
get- Dee Gordon (26yo).

I'm out of the race this season, building for the future. I would like to trade Nelson Cruz for an infield keeper, but it hasn't been that easy. doesn't help that he's in a slump right now.
this guy has been interested in Cruz for awhile. he is battling for 1st place, doing good in R/SB but needing HR/RBI. I haven't been that sure Gordon would remain on this level, but he has been pretty consistent.
should I trust that Gordon can maintain this in 2015+?

CA- Rosario. 1B- Davis. 2B- Walker. 3B- Machado. SS-Jeter. IN- KVargas.
OF- Cruz. OF- Dickerson. OF- Crisp. OF- Calhoun. UT- De Aza.
BN- Joyce, Marisnik, Dekker, Solarte, Gyorko, d'Arnaud, Pederson.
DL- Cuddyer. DL- Saunders.
SP- Bumgrner. SP- Kennedy. RP- Britton. RP- Petricka.
P- Santana. P- Nelson. P- Gausman.
BN- Kuroda, Fiers.

right now my 5 keepers would be..
Bumgarner, Machado, Davis, Cruz, Dickerson. but I'd rather not keep 2 OF.
if I made this trade my keepers could be..
Bumgarner, Machado, Davis, Gordon, Dickerson.

Yeah, that's probably a fair trade if the guy is willing to part with Gordon. Do I trust him to repeat this in 2015? Not really. But I don't trust Cruz either.

But unless the guy has an adequate replacement for Gordon at SS, I don't think he'd bite.

Could you comment on mine?
