Ok, another trade offer to mull over. Another guy in my league has 4 closers (Dotel, Foulke, F.Cordero, C.Cordero) and needs SP (he has Prior, Arroyo, Maddux, D.Willis, and T.Lilly). He is wanting to trade either Dotel or Foulke for Freddy Garcia.
My SP's currently are: R.Johnson, B.Sheets, A.J. Burnett, F. Garcia, Bonderman, K. Brown.
My RP's are: F.Rodriguez, B.J. Ryan, and Wickman.
If Ryan stays as the closer all year, he'll be fine. Wickman will get hurt at some point or get pulled, but he'll get me saves in the meantime. If I pick up Foulke or Dotel, I would drop Wickman and pick up Adam Eaton (who I'm very high on), Horacio Ramirez, or David Wells (wil help in W's and WHIP).
I think Freddy Garcia will struggle this year. His ERA ballooned last year after being traded to Chicago, even though he still got his wins. That ballpark ranks as one of the best hitters parks in the AL and kills pitchers ERA, so I'm kind of trying to sell high on Garcia. I also think Chicago's offense may stumble. I don't like having pitchers on teams that play so much small ball.
What do you guys think? Good deal?
