Dye for E. Santana?

Postby kailromanoff » Sun Jun 01, 2008 11:32 am

12 team 6x6 roto league(5x5 plus OPS & K/BB). I'm dominating hitting categories, particularly RBI(+30) and mediocre in pitching at best(especially wins with only 1 pt). I was offered Burnett for Dye but would rather have Santana. I still think he is winning the deal even though it would be a good fit for my team. My pitching should turn around some b/c I have C.C., Lackey and Kershaw. However I believe I need to upgrade some SP to make a run at the title(currently in 4th). should I try and and a grab a mediocre bat from him to sweeten the deal such as DeRosa, or a struggling Swisher...accept the deal or decline it? I have tried to include some lesser name bats but he seems hell bent on Dye. Any input?

What other outfielders do you have? What is your full list of SP? Dye for Santana is buying kinda high on Ervin and selling low on Dye, but you may not need the production numbers. I really do believe in this kid's turn-around. Just a year before his abysmal 7-14 season, he did post a 16-8 and he's on the way with a 7-2 record currently. I don't think it's a stretch to think he could win 8-10 more games for a very similar experience in 06.

I would do this trade. Your ideal OF should be 1) McLouth 2) CG 3)Ellsbury 4) Nady 5)Ibanez. I'm not a real big fan of any KC players right now, that entire team is offensively inept. If you can get him to bite on Ibanez instead of Dye, I would do that as well. Can you live with probably 5-10 fewer homers and 10-20 fewer rbi's (what I would expect is the trade-off between replacement production in Ibanez and Dye) for 8-10 W's, 3.5-4.0era pitcher, decent WHIP, and 90+ K's from this point of the season on?
