Need a Top Tier Pitcher?>:-0

Postby SwampDonkey » Wed May 11, 2011 3:44 am

Ok guys one last bid for help?!? 12 team salary cap dynasty h2h
Just processed a trade:
I send: Jayson Werth, Huston Street, Dan Uggla, Hiroki Kuroda
I recieve: Justin Upton, Nelson Cruz, Rickie Weeks
Qandry: Which pitcher to target?
Let me know your thought on the trade please!
My 2 cents: I feel like while I didn't take care of my SP needs it was a trade too good to pass up. I would be getting Upton for 4 years and Cruz for 3. Relief pitching can be countered by middle relievers points wise, and I think I upgrade everywhere else.
On top I have free agency bid on Ryan Dempster, Jordan Walden, and Vincente Padilla to help my pitching
Last, which pitching should or could I target, I am really looking at a number 1 or 2 but don't know who to go after

My team:(New players)
C Carlos Santana
1B Ryan Howard
2B Dan Uggla Rickie Weeks
3B Evan Longoria
SS Hanley Ramirez
LF Ryan Braun
CF Matt Kemp
RF Mike Stanton
UTIL Jayson Werth Justin Upton
UTIL Paul Konerko Nelson Cruz
SP Felix Hernandez
SP Rick Porcello
SP Brandon Beachy
SP Cole Hamels
SP Ervin Santana
RP Huston Street Jordan Walden
RP Frank Fransisco
RP Bobby Jenks
BE Kevin Gregg
BE Stephen Strasburg
BE Pedro Alvarez
BE Hiroki Kuroda Ryan Dempster

Is Nolasco available in your league? He's got great numbers for a pitcher.

Looks like a good trade to me. I always like to be receiveing the best player in the trade and you would be in JUpton.

Agreed. Nicely done. Once Cruz returns, I'd see if you can package him and someone else for an elite arm to throw in the mix. I like Cruz, but he can't stay on the field it seems. Great trade bait for you to dangle. If you hold him, no worries, as maybe he stays healthy and in which case he will rake.

Thanks for the info guys, now a bit more insight and help, top pitching in our league is a premium, and here are the ones I know won't be shipped: Lincecum, Halladay, Verlander, Kershaw, Lester. Who else do I target?

Your pitching looks great, I don't know what you are concerned about? You already have a couple top tier pitchers in Felix and Hamels. I like the Dempster pick up. The back end of your rotation is a little shaky, but I usually just fill those with waiver players and free agents anyway (like Dempster).

Some middle pitchers to target (either trade or FA) might be:
Travis Wood (4.32 tERA | 8.12 K/9)
Daniel Hudson (2.99 tERA)
Jordan Zimmermann (2.64 tERA)
