Be careful when making that trade to fix a problem on your squad. My keeper league team needed a strong starter for the rotation and I put together a deal for Daisuke Matsuzaka. Knowing his 2008 results and expecting the BoSox to continue scoring runs for him, I thought I could count on at least 15 wins. To do so, I had to give up Jorge Cantu and Jayson Werth.
The price was a little steep, but seemed worth it at the time. After I made the deal, I looked at what I had done and realized that my rotation was much stronger, but my DH was gone as was my backup at 1B and 3B and I had to move Jeff Francoeur from backup OF to starter. Three months later, I still haven’t properly solved my OF or backup 3B and it cost me Matt Garza to fix my DH/backup 1B. Oh yeah, and Dice-K has sucked this year thanks to his World Baseball Classic time.
You should always look before you leap. Don’t make a trade that will open new holes in your roster just to fix one problem.
