Trade Morrow + Lester for Roy Halladay?

Postby cs3 » Tue Apr 26, 2011 10:58 am

i was offered Lester and Morrow for Halladay. Would you take it?
And who would you drop? Im torn between Buccholz and Chacin, if I take the deal...
this is for a H2H league that counts both Wins and QS ( and Hits, along with the other standard 5x5 cats)
Also we have no innings limit and daily lineups, so maximizing starts is key in this league.
5 keepers, any players, no penalties

my current rotation:
Starting Pitchers
SP: Mat Latos (SP), Clay Buchholz (SP), Jaime Garcia (SP), Daniel Hudson (SP)
BN: Roy Halladay (SP), Michael Pineda (SP), Shaun Marcum (SP), Jhoulys Chacin (SP,RP)

Do you think streaming a pitcher would be more effective than having Morrow every 5th day?
Basically the choices for me are:
Halladay + Bucchy
Halladay + Chacin
Halladay + random streamer every week
Lester + Morrow

I would be getting a ton more K's in the deal, but my whip may suffer (depending on who i drop).
era + wins should be pretty close to a wash. im not sure how QS would pan out, but i dont see too much benefit one way or the other.

(btw this league has rules set up to discourage streaming, so i could realistically only add 1, maybe 2 pitchers per week. defintitely not one every day tho)

This might be a league in which Morrow and Lester add up to more than Halladay. In a standard league I'd say it's close so stick with the star. Here, though, getting an extra very good starter looks quite valuable. I'd have to dig into the numbers a bit more to see what the difference is between Chacin and Buchholz but Chacin just plays in such a better league for pitchers than Bucky that I might go with him.

You can always get analysis of these offers by posting them at TradeBashers.com. You can input the players involved and league details and the community votes on the trade. In the end you see exactly what percent of managers prefer one side and what percent prefers the other. Adds some good numbers to a topic, trade offers, that is usually dealt with as almost entirely subjective.

Wow, it's tough, but I think I'd do it. I think Lester will have close to as many wins as Halladay. Halladay throws so many innings, which can give you CGs if your league counts that. However, you are winning in K's with Morrow and Lester. I think I'd pull the trigger, and drop Buchholz.

Would anyone be swayed one way or the other if Hanson was included instead of Morrow?

If CGs arr counted the. I'd stay with Roy and package a hitter with bucholz to get Morrow.

If he'll do Lester and Hanson for Halladay and Bucholz in a 2 for 2 (or just the 2 for 1) then I'd do that.
