Fuentes for Justin Upton?

Postby Brownie19 » Mon Apr 06, 2009 2:56 pm

One manager in my league really needs a closer and actually has Arrendondo, which makes Fuentes a nice fit for him.

If I could get the upside of Justin Upton, would it be worth rolling with just Qualls, Gregg, Motte and Villenuava to start the season?

other options would be C.Pena or Zimmerman probably....blah.

You have no room for another outfielder who you may not play.

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.

upside - I love upside!!! haha.

Plus if he's good, I can make another trade.

I just thought I have enough closers and Upton has more value.

With 4 OF spots and 2 Util spots, most of my bench guys end up playing daily, or when they have good matchups. I find it normally works when you factor in injuries, days off and matchups vs. top pitchers.

ah jesus - he offered this exact trade to me.....so torn and hard to pull the trigger after watching Motte suck balls today.

I countered with Gregg for J.Upton.
