Talking Trade: K-Rod or Mulder?
Posted: 23 April 2006 07:18 PM   [ Ignore ]

I could do one of two trades:

a) to me K-Rod, from me Mulder

b) to me K-Rod & Blalock, from me Mulder and Granderson

Which would you do?

I am leaning towards just the pitching one, a).  That way, I can keep benching Wilkerson instead of having him in center.

Thanks for the help.

Sim or roto Johnny?  In roto, I’d probably like K-Rod and Blalock but in sim, I think I’d rather have the other two.

Who would you replace Granderson with? What about Blalock? Is your league LF/CF/RF or 3 OF?

It’s separate OF slots.

I did the deal without Granderson and Blalock.  I couldn’t justify making Wilkerson my starter in CF and Blalock a bench player.

This way, even if Granderson is worse than Blalock this year (and I sincerely hope he’s not), I still end up with 2 choices at CF.  Possibly, as the year progresses, Wilkerson will rise and pass a sliding Granderson; I’d rather have two guys doing great, but this does cover my risks.

I have Fielder and Delgado for my utility slots, and so Blalock was not playing there.  And Wright starts at 3B.

My pitching is getting better.  Now, I have Zumaya, Duaner Sanchez, Street, Gagne (DL), Cotts, Soriano, and now F-Rod in a league in which I can start 5 relievers daily, and relievers are crucial (a lot of rate stats, only a 20 IP minimum each week, no saves or wins).
