The difference between top SP's vs above average...minimal

Postby acg3232 » Mon May 02, 2011 3:10 am

The difference between top starting pitchers and above average SP's is minimal IMO. In a 14 roto team league (non-keeper),

Should I trade Cain/Chris Perez for Cliff Lee?

I've got 4 closers.... I'm tied for 1st in the league in Saves, and theres a fairly deep gap from me and the 3rd, 4th place teams. I'm 10th in K's, 9th in Wins, 4th in ERA, 5th in Whip (probably because I'm 10th in the league in Innings Pitched, so having so many closers keeps my ERA down. However, I feel like I'll start separating from the top Pitching teams in counting categories like K's and W's since I don't have as many starting pitchers). My pitching: SP's - Cain, Marcum, Kuroda, Harang, Ed Jax, RP's - Kimbrel, Axford, C.Perez, Madson/Contreras

Thanks.

1. It's too much for Lee.
2. You aren't gaining that much in SP, since you are losing Cain.
I would shop the overrated Axford for a Chacin/JGarcia type SP.
