Verlander for Teixiera? Should I do it??

Postby cubsfan2513 » Wed Apr 06, 2011 7:36 pm

looking for opinions. My lineup is balanced so it wont greatly effect it either way since i also have felix hernandez as an ace for my staff.

This should alter your lineup significantly. You are giving up a potential top-10 ace for a potential top-10 hitter. Can't really comment without knowing the entire roster. For example, who would Tiexiera be replacing?

Hmm, this will leave you with only 1 top-20 pitcher. Certainty a trade-off. What is the size of your league, and what is the scoring system?

Dude, I would be fist-pumping ACCEPTING this trade if I were you. Teixeiera rakes, and is a top 15 first round pick while Verlander is closer to the top 50 range. As Arnold would say to the Predator, "DOOO IT. DO IT NOW! WHAD AH YOU WAITING FOR?"

On value alone you have to take this deal. Losing Verlander hurts, but your staff isn't awful behind him (no aces besides King Felix, but you should still compete just fine).
