King Felix/Lester trade

Postby tonyobonyo » Wed Apr 06, 2011 6:31 pm

Hey guys. I'm thinkin I may want to add some depth to my pitching staff. In return for Felix, I was offered Lester and any one of these guys: Drabek, McLellan, or Bumgarner. I honestly don't feel that there is a huge drop off from Felix to Lester, and I could maybe use an extra starter for depth. Should I take a deal? and which do you think would be the best? Thanks for your help

You're right, Lester and Felix aren't really that far apart (what Lester loses in ratios he makes up for in wins). I really like all three of Drabek, McLellan, and Bumgarner. Tough to choose between them. I'd tend to lean towards Mclellan or Bumgarner because they don't have to face the yankees and sox every couple outings.

I'd take the deal with Bumgarner. King Felix is a stud, but you're correct in thinking that Lester isn't miles behind him. Getting Bumgarner pushes the deal in your favor, IMO.

If it were keeper, it would be a no-brainer -- lester + bumgarner > Felix.

It's less obvious in non-keeper. But i will make this point: for what Lester won't deliver as well with era/whip he will match in K's and top in wins. Do for that reason I give the nod towards the trade. And Bumgarner isn't a bad icing on the cake.

Agree with the above. I'd take Lester and Baumgarner.

Help here? Looking to try to get some value for Utley:
