Postby JohnWilkesBoof » Fri May 20, 2011 7:40 am

Braun is obviously the best player in the deal-- What do you think? Too much?

You can't afford to lose Johnson.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

I agree that you'd be putting too much faith in Liriano with that move, but i would be looking for a buyer for Heyward in a non-keeper. His long term ceiling is as high as any young player's, but it looks like he's still having growing pains and his shoulder may still be an issue right now. If you could work a deal to replace Johnson with a quality arm, i think the upgrade from Heyward to Braun is worth the risk. But if you got stuck with your current pitching, minus Johnson, you'd be in a tough spot.

What if it's a H2H league? Does that change your opinion?

In a league with OPS and holds, I'd do it. Especially if it's H2H and you can stream a little bit. Starting pitchers aren't nearly as valuable.
