Crawford for Lester/Thornton?

Postby pdanger7 » Tue Apr 05, 2011 9:14 pm

I am in an espn 10 person roto league and I am in desperate need of pitching. Should I trade Carl Crawford for John Lester and Matt Thornton? The stats we use are R, HR, SBN, RBI, OBP, K, WHIP, ERA, SV and W's. Here is my roster.

Matt Weiters
Carlos Pena
Brandon Phillips
Adrian Beltre
Derek Jeter
Carl Crawford
Josh Hamilton
Chris Young
Matt Kemp
Matt Holliday
Drew Stubbs
Colby Rasmus
Kendrys Moralis
Chase Utley

Daniel Hudson
Ian Kennedy
Sean Burnett
Ryan Dempster
Jorge De La Rosa
Ricky Romero
Chris Perez
Fernando Rodney (soon to be Jordan Walden)

I would definitely do this deal. Your OF looks legit and could sustain itself without Crawford. I think Stubbs and Rasmus are especially in for great seasons and your SPs are just meh. There's really not a pitcher on your team that stands out and Lester is probably better than any two of them combined. Throw in a closer on a good team and this is a no-brainer for me.

I am fine with this deal. You can use the SP and Lester is an Ace which you really need. I think I would prefer to get another SP than Thorton if you could.
