Joba for Bobby Abreu?

Postby Garnold » Fri May 29, 2009 12:17 pm

Hey, the second place team in my league wants to offer me Bobby Abreu for a pitcher with strike-outs. Here is my team as it stands. I'm in first (12 team 5x5 roto non-keeper) and am almost dead-last in steals. My team:

C: Brandon Inge
1B: Carlos Pena
2B: Chase Utley
3B: Adrian Beltre
SS: Derek Jeter
CI: Paul Konerko
MI: Jose Lopez
OF: Carlos Beltran
OF: Nick Markakis
OF: Corey Hart
OF: Magglio Ordonez
OF: Adam Lind
UTIL: Raul Ibanez

Bench: Nolan Reimold, Ben Francisco, Alex Gordon (DL)

SP: Jake Peavy
SP: Joba Chamberlain
SP: Scott Baker
SP: Randy Johnson
SP: Ted Lilly
SP: Jair Jurrjens
SP: Paul Maholm
SP: Jered Weaver
SP: Rick Porcello
RP: Brian Fuentes
RP: Mike Gonzalez
RP: Brandon Morrow
RP: Jose Arredondo
RP: Dan Wheeler

Obviously, I'd rather have a MI to replace the apparently stanky Jose Lopez. I figure if I flip this trade, I can then deal away another OF for MI help. Thoughts? Will Abreu steal 20 more bases on the year?
12 Team Mixed Redraft 5x5

C: R. Martin
1B: Hosmer
2B: Wong
3B: Donaldson
SS: A. Russell
CI: M. Franco
MI: Odor
OF: Pollock
OF: Heyward
OF: Revere
OF: Kiermaier
OF: ?
UTIL: Singleton

Bench: Owings, Sano (na), Mike Morse (DL), Stanton (DL), Buxton (DL)

P: Hamels, Alex Wood, T. Ross, T. Walker, Buchholz, Hammel, Jaime Garcia, Latos, Wisler, Gausman (na?), Corbin (DL)
CL: K-Rod, Rodney, Tolleson, Perkins

No idea who you're trading for Abreu, but I'd much rather have a speedy MI guy than an over the hill speedy outfielder. Myabe Jurrjens for Roberts or Figgins? Not sure if that would fly though.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Trading Joba Chamberlain for Bobby Abreu.

I'm trying to swing a Jurrjens for Figgins trade right now. Funny you should mention that...

Totally spaced on the title of this thread. Joba for Abreu is fair. I'd prefer to get Figgins for your team. Better chance for 30 more steals.
