Dynasty Trade - Webb/Hamels for Lester/Pineda

Postby curl » Sat Oct 30, 2010 7:17 pm

I'm in a 20 team, 25 keeper head to head league.

I was offered the following trade:

My:

Jon Lester
Michael Pineda

for:

Cole Hamels
Brandon Webb

Now, Hamels and Lester seem more or less a wash to me at first glance. Although Lester seems to be more consistent. And in general, I'm a proponent of sending off prospects for veterans. But, would you take a chance on a guy like Webb who hasn't pitched in two years? I'm inclined to think that the risk here is too great, but what do you think?

Leave your link.

Word I heard is Webb is throwing in the low to mid 80s right now, I'd be inclined to pass at this point.

I would want nothing to do with Webb so I would hang onto Lester.

Another vote for the Lester side. I just do not see Webb returning to pre-injury form. Too risky
