Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Hey all - checking to see what you think here. I've been offered Corey Hart for Mariano Rivera.
I'm in a 12-team H2H mixed league 7x6 (standard 5x5 plus Fielding, Slugging, and Holds): standard 9 batters, 4SP, 4RP, 1P, with 3 BN spots that can be used for any position.
For RPs, I currently have Rivera, Soria, and Bell plus Downs and Marmol who sometimes get saves so I'm more than covered for closers.... last week, for example, I had 6 Saves and 4 Holds; other winning teams in these categories only had 3 or 4 Saves and 2 or 3 Holds. The week before, I had 8 Saves.
In the OF, I have THunter, RIbanez, and RWinn with no back-ups. I like RWinn a lot as a 4th OF; much less as a 3rd. Best availables on waivers are MCameron, PBurrell, CCrisp, and LMilledge if he makes it back to the majors.
Clearly I need a boost in hitting more than I need to carry this many relievers but does Corey Hart feel like a substantial enough trade? If I'm trading Rivera away, should I shop him for a better OF?
