I have been offered a very interesting deal. I'm giving up Nelson Cruz and Joel Pineiro for Chad Billingsley and Mariano Rivera. Here's my team after the deal:
Russell Martin, Garrett Jones, Dan Uggla, David Wright, Alexei Ramirez, Nick Markakis, Andre Ethier, Derrek Lee, Michael Bourn (FA pickup), Carlos Beltran, Joba Chamberlain, Chad Billingsley, Randy Wolf, Matt Cain, Ubaldo Jimenez, John Lannan, Ervin Santana, Mariano Rivera, Kerry Wood, Ryan Franklin, Rafael Soriano, Jordan Zimmerman
Here's his team:
Bengie Molina, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Marco Scutaro, Jason Bartlett, Nate McLouth, Michael Cuddyer, Shin-Soo Choo, Nelson Cruz, Aaron Hill, Russell Branyan, Vladimir Guerrero, Adam Wainwright, Marc Rzepczynski, Joel Pineiro, Ricky Romero, Clay Buchholz, Jonathan Papelbon, David Aardsma, Zach Duke, Brett Anderson, Rich Harden, and Pedro Martinez.
This is a h2h in yahoo. The difference is there's only two RP and 5 SP. No P positions. I'm worried about losing a bat but with Rivera, Soriano, and Franklin, I could lock up SV. Is it worth losing a power bat in order to get a good SP and great RP? Also, is it time to drop Santana? Thanks.
