Trade McCutchen for Beckett? WHIR

Postby mhuhn23 » Sun Apr 24, 2011 8:18 pm

I was offered this trade after I posted on the league page that I'm looking for infield help or pitching, in exchange for my outfield.

Here is my team in a 12-team categories league.
Batter stats are: R, HR, RBI, SB, K, AVG, OPS, E.
Pitcher stats are: HRA, K, W, SV, ERA, WHIP, K/BB

His offer was his Josh Beckett and Delmon Young for my Andrew McCutchen and Chone Figgins. We do not have DL spots ( :-C ), and we kept 6 coming into this year, and keep 7 for 2012. I put a K next to my keepers. If Sizemore, Bay, Anderson, Morneau, or Feliz keep things up, I plan to replace McCutchen as a keeper with 2 of those.

C Miguel Montero
1B Miguel Cabrera (K)
2B Jonathan Herrera
3B Chipper Jones
SS Hanley Ramirez (K)
OF Justin Upton (K)
OF Jason Heyward(K)
OF Andrew McCutchen (K)
OF Jason Bay
UTIL Justin Morneau
BN OF Grady Sizemore
BN 2B, 3B Chone Figgins
BN Aaron Hill
BN Logan Morrison

SP Tim Lincecum (K)
SP Brett Anderson
SP Jaime Garcia
SP Madison Bumgarner
SP John Lackey
SP Derek Holland
RP Neftali Feliz
RP Mitchell Boggs
RP Jordan Walden
RP Matt Capps

Do you feel like a counter of Trevor Cahill instead of Beckett wouls tip the scales in my favor?

The other person is looking to dump D. Young and sell Beckett high.

I would stand pat with McCutchen.

I traded Lincecum to land Cutch. You better be getting a top-flight ace for him if you're wanting to improve your pitching. This is a classic case of sell high/buy low deal. Do not do this.
