I need better pitching depth behind my front 4. Do I sell high on Grady Sizemore and take a chance on Greinke? Or can I not afford the loss of offense? My team has performed lousy on both sides of the ball, but I do worry that a guy like Ogando could go back to the pen and I need better SP consistent so these scrub pitchers don't erase my aces' gains
Trade Sizemore to get Greinke? Note: Greinke could not be kept, but we can only keep 6 players anyway.
12 Team H2H. We Keep 6 Players Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means contract year
Would I need to make it a 2 for 2? Sometimes 1 for 1s with a pitcher and a hitter get vetoed. If so, who could I throw in in my end? Can't be Moreland or Zimmermann because I won't have them until another trade processes.
I personally say your pitching is fine, I mean you obviously have 3 major studs, so I would just stay at where you're at...BUT if you're looking to upgrade depth, which is what you said, and there could be some truth to that, then I would definitely make this deal. I think Sizemore is going to have a big comeback year but for a pitcher like Greinke its worth it in my opinion. Your offense looks strong enough in the OF to the point where it will not be a big loss and you will be getting a great pitcher for "depth" seeing as Greinke is a #1 pitcher haha So yeah I would not be hesitant to make this deal. Good luck!!
I wouldn't. Sizemore is hitting the ball hard. Your offense is slumping, and i don't think Crawford will pick it up a lot. Besides, you have 3 stud SP, and while Greinke is good, i think he's a bit overrated.
