I give Joba Chamberlain + Ludwick I get Perkins, Lilly + Carlos Pena
I am struggling mightily with pitching. Statwise (even though it is H2H) my numbers look like this: Last in ERA at 5.04, 9th in WHIP at 1.41, 9th in Ks at 247
Our league cats: R,RBI,SB,AVG,OPS | W,K,SV,ERA,WHIP
My Roster: C Ivan Rodriguez 1B Derrek Lee 2B Dan Uggla 3B David Wright SS Michael Young 2B/SS J.J. Hardy 1B/3B Chipper Jones OF Carlos Quentin OF Raul Ibanez OF Jerry Hairston Jr. OF Shin-Soo Choo UTIL Josh Hamilton Bench Geovany Soto Bench Adam LaRoche Bench Chris Coghlan
P Scott Downs P Michael Wuertz SP Joba Chamberlain SP Chris Young SP Javier Vazquez SP Kevin Slowey SP Barry Zito RP Brad Lidge RP Joe Nathan RP Juan Cruz
I like the upgrade you're getting at 1B with Pena, but since you're objective is to upgrade your pitching, I don't think you're really upgrading that much here. Lilly and Joba are fairly equal, but you're giving up all the upside and K potential. Perkins is very 'meh'. I'd sub out those two pitchers for a more talented SP instead, that would make it a better deal for you.
