Tim in Jersey…..
I heard the Podcast of an early show this week when Cory mention making a wedding day trade. Last year I made two wedding day trades. One of them was with my best man while sitting at the alter during the priest’s homily. They both paid off and I went on to win the league.
Chuck Norris doesn’t believe in pitch or ditch he believes in pitch or kill.
I’m in a 5×5 mixed 12 team roto league. My outfield is short on power. I was offered Adam Dunn and Cliff Lee for Roger Clemens and Jason Giambi. What are your thoughts and opinions?
Tim, that’s great stuff… but I think you should attend another wedding instead of making this deal. Going from Clemens to Lee is a major downgrade, much bigger than the power upgrade from Giambi to Dunn. I’d try to do that deal straight up, but I wouldn’t include the pitchers. Good luck!
Your secret is safe with us as long as the checks don’t bounce. Cliff Lee would have to turn around his season in a dramatic way now to have any kind of value near Clemens and as much I think Lee is a good pitcher despite the start he is no Rocket. Dunn and Giambi are close enough for me to agree with Cory on this one.
I once and like Joe Piscopo’s character in Johnny dangerously says “once” told my wife who was my fiance at the time to take her sweet time getting ready while were in Chicago getting ready for Yanks vs Cubs at Wrigley because I was in the process of making a move in my AL Only. I think I traded Lackey for Zeile, but this ended up being bad John lackey so it was a wash. Not as dramatic as the wedding day trade at the pulpit but if you ever died a slow horrible death waiting for her to get ready you’d see where I’m coming from. Love ya honey!
