Garrett Richards for D. Robertson? WHIR

Postby LittleTree » Fri Apr 03, 2015 12:17 am

Okay, so my league just had our draft and I think I may still be a little light on SP's. I offered a guy N. Feltz for his Garrett Richards. He countered with his Garrett Richards for my David Robertson. I think this is still a good move for me but I'm not sure. Richards had the bad injury last year? Plus, Joaquin Benoit is still available so I could add him as another RP if need be. My league is a 10-team re-draft league, no keepers. WHIR 100% Thanks!!!!! I've attached my roster below.

C-Yan Gomes
1B-Encarnacion
2B-Pedroia
3B-Adrian Beltre

10-teams only start 2 RP there will always be closers available in FA. I'd trade them for just about anything. Go ahead.

Ditto. Trade Robertson, add Benoit if you need him. In fact, people dog Benoit but I like him as much as Robertson: his peripherals are good, he pitches in a pitcher's park, and has little competition for the gig. And there are a lot of speculative closers available esp. in 10 team leagues if you get desperate -- guys like Ken Giles, Adam Ottavino, Bobby Parnell, and even current closers like Benoit -- so if you need another starting arm, do it. Thanks for mine.

I agree, grab Richards, saves should be easily obtainable here.

Trade Robertson for Richards, drop Feliz for Benoit. Also, if you really want to get crafty since you only have two RP slots, if Jenrry Mejia is available, grab him and slot him in as an SP when you're able to move Jose Fernandez to the DL.

Perfect ^^^^
RP in shallow leagues can be snatched at any time. Plus, about 10 guys who are closers now won't be by the end of the year. Work the WW. Get a young stud in Richards.
