So, I just got the deal of a lifetime- to damage my pitching roster in exchange for Hanley. So, now I have Peralta that I'd like to get rid of to ease some of that damage. Someone offered me the above trade- Peralta in exchange for Ubaldo and Buchholz, after I was trying to get Kershaw or Volquez.
I am in a 14-team, standard 5x5 head-to-head scoring, 3-year keeper league in our first year. My current roster is:
C: Benjie Molina
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Brian Roberts
3B: Chris Davis
SS: Hanley Ramirez
OF: Corey Hart
OF: Adam Dunn
OF: Pat Burrell
Util: James Loney
Bench offense: Jhonny Peralta, Carlos Gomez, Jorge Cantu, Freddy Sanchez
SP: Roy Oswalt, Derek Lowe, Ryan Dempster, Kenshin Kawakami, Trevor Cahill
RP: Chad Qualls, Brad Ziegler, Chris Ray
As you can see, my pitching staff is in dire need of assistance. I figure that Jimenez is decent, and if/when something happens to Penny or another RS pitcher, Buchholz will get the call. Should I take the trade? What are your opinions on these two pitchers?
Thanks a bunch!
