J. Upton/Norris for Cain/Fuld/Hunter?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Sun May 08, 2011 8:05 pm

Auction style league, keeper league, 24 man rosters, points league, 16 teams, 300 dollar cap. I am looking to upgrade my starters a bit and just make my team better overall obviously. I sent a few feelers and so far this is what I have gotten back:

I have been offered Sam Fuld($1) and Torii Hunter($4) and Matt Cain($30) for my Justin Upton($30) and Bud Norris($3). I would be losing 2 bucks but gaining Cain and a solid Hunter. The only thing is is that I have a plethora of avg OF and not sure if I need Hunter and Fuld. Plus Upton in a keeper is big in my opinion and not toooo expensive at 30 bucks. But, I do need a stud like Cain. What do you guys think?

Here is my team:

C-Olivo
1B-MCab
2B-Phillips
SS-Hanley
3B-N. Walker
OF-Kemp
OF-J. Upton
OF-C. Lee
UTI-Adam Jones
BN-Joyce
BN-Maybin
BN-Byrd

SP-Lowe
SP-Chen
SP-Volquez
RP-Rodney
RP-Feliz
P-Norris
P-Wolf
BN-Tillman
BN-Volstad
BN-Jensen
BN-M. Gonzalez
DL-Esmil Rogers

Hmm...I'd stand pat-for now.

I dropped Hunter weeks ago for Gomes, and then Gomes for Hart, and then Hart for Rios (Alex), but I am in a 12 team H2H non-keeper, so my situation is different.

I think we are seeing Fuld's true colors, and while he is and will be good, I expect his playing time to decrease and Desmond Jennings to ultimately be his successor, so keep an eye out.

I own Cain and he is a stud, but Norris is a solid K/9 pitcher, so you have a give and take here. However, Lyons is out, so Norris might be in line for a lot of ND's.

Upton for $30???!!! I don't blame you for wanting to give him up.

You have slim pickins here. Who is available on your f/a wire for OF's?

I agree with the previous two posters..Id stand pat with Upton and Norris. Fuld is coming back down to earth after a hot start and while Cain is awesome I think Norris is going to have a real good year and him along with Upton is just too much IMO

Gotta stay where you're at for now...Upton in a keeper is much more valuable...Fuld isn't worth anything at this point, he only had it for about a week or two. Hunter is solid, but again, I don't think its worth it. Cain will obviously be very good, but Norris' K/9 is also very good and his ERA will definitely come down, so overall I think you have to stay put. Hopefully this helps! Thanks for your help on mine! ;-D

Stand pat. Like Cain a lot but Fuld will be unimpressive return hitting wise and hunter isn't enough to justify moving Norris.

Id hold off. I like Norris, and Upton has big potential. Cain is rock solid, but Hunter is a benchie type guy, and Fuld will soon be droppable, if he isnt already.

J. Upton/Norris for Cain/Fuld/Hunter?(WHIR)

Postby saemick » Mon May 09, 2011 8:12 am

Like the rest have said, I think I hold off on this one. While I like Cain, you're selling an awful lot for him...especially to only get some average OF's along with him. I'd either stand pat or aim a little higher than Cain if you're willing to deal Upton.

Please help:
