I'm thinking of trading Rollins to boost my starting pitching...
I'd love to get at least a #1 pitcher and possibly get them to throw in their SS.
Here are a couple of teams with pitchers that might work for me. Let me know if there is anything you'd recommend:
TEAM A C Bengie Molina (SF - C) 1B Carlos Delgado (NYM - 1B) 2B Mark DeRosa (Cle - 2B,3B,OF) 3B Adrián Béltre (Sea - 3B) SS Ryan Theriot (ChC - SS) OF Vernon Wells (Tor - OF) OF J.D. Drew (Bos - OF) OF Denard Span (Min - OF) Util Daniel Murphy (NYM - OF) SP Tim Lincecum (SF - SP) SP Johan Santana (NYM - SP) RP Francisco Rodríguez (NYM - RP) RP Bobby Jenks (CWS - RP) P Roy Halladay (Tor - SP) P Rich Harden (ChC - SP) P Daisuke Matsuzaka (Bos - SP) BN Willy Taveras (Cin - OF) BN Álex Rodríguez (NYY - 3B) BN Travis Snider (Tor - OF) BN Ty Wigginton (Bal - 3B,OF) BN Jed Lowrie (Bos - 3B,SS) BN Jonathan Sánchez (SF - SP)
TEAM B C Joe Mauer (Min - C) 1B Mark Teixeira (NYY - 1B) 2B Chase Utley (Phi - 2B) 3B Chipper Jones (Atl - 3B) SS Michael Young (Tex - SS) OF Torii Hunter (LAA - OF) OF Raúl Ibañez (Phi - OF) OF Nelson Cruz (Tex - OF) Util Robinson Canó (NYY - 2B) SP Cole Hamels (Phi - SP) SP Brandon Webb (Ari - SP) RP Joakim Soria (KC - RP) RP Chad Qualls (Ari - RP) P Scott Baker (Min - SP) P Kevin Slowey (Min - SP) P George Sherrill (Bal - RP) BN Carlos Guillén (Det - 1B,3B) BN Orlando Cabrera (Oak - SS) BN Jason Kubel (Min - OF) BN Brandon Inge (Det - C,3B,OF) BN Hideki Okajima (Bos - RP) BN Dámaso Marte (NYY - RP)
==================================== MY ROSTER - 12 team H2H, 7x7 scoring
**R, H, HR, RBI, SB, K, AVG** C Matt Wieters (Bal - C) NA 1B Carlos Peña (TB - 1B) 2B Ian Kinsler (Tex - 2B) 3B Ryan Zimmerman (Was - 3B) SS Jimmy Rollins (Phi - SS) OF Matt Kemp (LAD - OF) OF Nick Markakis (Bal - OF) OF Hunter Pence (Hou - OF) Util Magglio Ordóñez (Det - OF) BN Alex Gordon (KC - 3B) BN Rick Ankiel (StL - OF) BN Adam LaRoche (Pit - 1B) BN Kelly Shoppach (Cle - C)
**W, L, SV, K, HLD, ERA, QS** SP John Lackey (LAA - SP) SP Adam Wainwright (StL - SP) RP Brad Lidge (Phi - RP) RP Huston Street (Col - RP) P Aaron Harang (Cin - SP) P Jered Weaver (LAA - SP) P Kevin Gregg (ChC - RP) BN Fausto Carmona (Cle - SP) BN Gavin Floyd (CWS - SP)
I think trading with A is a great fit for both of your teams. A is stacked in pitching and could do better (though no worse) at SS. Either Lincecum or Johan should do for Rollins and don't expect any less. The problem is it's harder to replace Rollins than it is in pitching. I still see Lackey, Wainwright, and Harang as a good starting three, with Weaver and Carmona good bets to outproduce last year's numbers.
If you really want an ace, I'd rather deal from strength and try to aim for Halladay with say, Markakis.
