Trade Offer Help WHIR

Postby brad_fox87 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 4:54 pm

I am in a 5x5 H2H ten team league in which we get to keep 7 players (3 hitters, 3 pitchers, 1 either). My current options for keepers are the following:
Hitters: Hanley Ramirez
Ryan Howard
Justin Upton
Andrew McCutchen
Pitchers: CC Sabathia
David Price
Justin Verlander
Jared Weaver

I've tried to trade a pitcher and a hitter to upgrade one of my hitter keepers, and I've gotten this counter offer: Andrew McCutchen and CC Sabathia for David Wright from a team with solid hitting (Wright, Crawford, Tex) but in need of another pitching keeper besides Lincecum. It doesn't seem like there is much of a drop off from CC to my other 3 pitching keepers, so despite McCutchen's upside, I should definitely take this trade, right?

Thanks and WHIR

Yes. Wright is a top 10 player and McCutchen while still very young and talented is not even close. No one cares about CC.

Yes definitely do this deal... and this is coming from a McCutchen homer and a Yankee fan. Wright is a top tier player. You have to take him.

I like the trade too. You can't keep all four SP and you do get a first rounder in Wright in return.

I don't see this as quite so cut and dry as those above I guess, but I'd still do this....wright is a nice upgrade for your batters, and you gotta ditch a decent pitcher anyways.

help with mine?
