owens and zeile for olerud

Postby it'sbeenawhile » Wed Jun 19, 2002 8:46 am

I've just been offered this trade, but I'm not sure how it would affect my team. I've been going after Olerud for a little while.

Zeile is playing first base for me at the moment, Owens is playing in my outfield.

I'd have Olerud play first and then my outfield would look something like Mondesi, Dye, and R. Sanders/M. Mora. I know...I know it's not much. I've had to make two trades to get Mondesi and Tejada.

So I think this trade helps me, but does it help me enough?

Currently, I'm last in runs and HR and second in RBI's in a 12 team roto 5x5 league with daily changes.

My lineup is currently at the moment

C- Kendall
1b- Zeile
2b- Castillo
SS- Tejada
3b- Rolen
OF- Mondesi
OF- Dye
OF- Owens
Util- Furcal
Bench- M.Mora
Bench- R. Sanders

SP- Mussina, Buerhle, Rueter, Clement, Moyer and Beckett (DL) RP- Acevedo, Guardado, Percival, Kim, and Mendoza

I'm currently first in wins, saves, and WHIP---but keep in mind I've recently traded away Colon and Halladay.

Thanks for the help,.

Olerud is really only better than Zeile in runs - I'm not sure that justifies giving up Owens. 3b eligibility doesn't hurt, either.

If you like Olerud very much, though, go ahead, but see if you can get a minor throw-in by pointing to the numbers.
