Am I giving up too much or too little?

Postby May-Day Malone » Mon May 02, 2011 4:47 pm

Yahoo! H2H keeper league with 6x6 scoring (R,2nd,HR,RBI,SB,AVG/W,SV,ERA,K,WHIP,K/9)
I haven't been doing very well in the pitching categories and feel like I have too many good position players.

My lineup:
Matt Wieters (C)
Mark Teixeira (1st)
Ian Kinsler (2nd)
Alex Rodriguez (3rd)
Elvis Andrus (SS)
Jacoby Ellsbury (OF)
Brett Gardner (OF)
Cory Hart (OF)
Robinson Cano (2nd)
Mike Napoli (1st/C)
Ryan Howard (1st)
Placido Polanco (2nd/3rd)
B.J. Upton (OF)
Asdrubal Cabrera (SS)

Roy Halladay
Gavin Floyd
Randy Wolf
Matt Capps
Mitchell Boggs
Edwin Jackson
Roy Oswalt
Dan Haren

Their Lineup:
Geovany Soto (C)
Adam Lind (1st/OF)
Chone Figgins (2nd/3rd)
Chipper Jones (3rd)
Jimmy Rollins (SS)
Matt Holliday (OF)
Torii Hunter (OF)
Bobby Abreu (OF)
Hunter Pence (OF)
Grady Sizemore (OF)
Denard Span (OF)
Ian Stewart (3rd) (In Minors)
Ryan Zimmerman (3rd) (DL)
Aaron Hill (2nd) (DL)

Ted Lilly
A.J. Burnett
Carl Pavano
Carlos Marmol
Kyle McClellan
Edinson Volquez
Ian Kennedy
Ricky Romero
Andrew Bailey (DL)
Zach Greinke (DL)

I was thinking of offering my Mike Napoli and Placido Polanco for his Ricky Romero and Zach Greinke. Despite having two 4 game winners (Halladay and Haren) and three 3 game winners I'm still 0-3-1 in the Win column and 1-3-0 in both ERA and WHIP. Any help would be great. Thanks!

If he takes it I'd say it's a good deal for you but it is a stretch. I don't think your giving enough. Thats two high class pitchers!

Help me out: M. Garza/Lowrie for Marcum?

I think too little. Napoli isn't starting every game and Soto will still likelky be his stating catcher even after your deal. If Polanco provides him much value over Chipper it won't equal the value he surely expects from Greinke, now that he finally has him . Besides at some point he'll have Zimm manning 3B and will be deep at 2B with Hill and Figgy qualifying there so Polanco and Napoli isn't likely enough to get him to part with Greinke and Romero. IMO you need to go bigger.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

In your opinion what would be a good trade between him and I?
