Trading one imploder for another...

Postby J!m Future » Tue Apr 20, 2010 5:04 pm

Alright, that's all I wanted to see outta Bills. Thinking about offering a buy low/my trash for yours trade along this line in my 11 team 6x6 (OPS/QS) roto:

Bills/Vladdy for Adam Jones/Zambrano

Big Z's still kinda sucking, but all those K's are telling me he's getting unlucky (and his xFIP is almost a full 6 runs below his ERA...)

Think it's fair, or am I dreaming?

If you're willing to take the gamble on Z, Jones is a huge upgrade over Vladdy. I also prefer hitting over pitching so I would do this.

And seconds after I post this, Vladdy steals two bags. In the same inning.

EVERYTHING WE KNOW IS WRONG.

Made the offer, but after Big Z's 9K performance tonight I fully expect to be rejected. Sigh...

Or since the ASB of last year. He's gotta be doing something mechanically different or can't realize that he's hurt.
"The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always
so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts."

"The worst thing that can happen to a gambler is to win."

"When you bet on a dog only three things can happen; two of them are good."

...aaaaaaand now Big Z's been sent to the pen. Totally resubmitting this offer. Especially since I've got MRs who can be dropped for the somehow-still-on-the-wire Colby Lewis...
