Cliff Lee for Prado and Billingsly? WHIR

Postby T bleep O » Thu May 12, 2011 3:32 am

I got offered this deal tonight. Its a 16 team league rotisserie 8x8 (extra hitting stats: hits, touched bases, on-base %)(extra pitching stats: losses, complete games, holds) I currently am in 10th place and I'm one of 3 teams left without a complete game. If I did this deal I'd move Maicer Izturis to 2nd base.

My Prado and Billingsly for his Cliff Lee.

My team:
C - W. Ramos
1B - A. Gonzalez
2B - M. Prado
3B - C. McGahee
SS - O. Cabrera
OF - S. Choo
OF - A. Rios
OF - B. Abreu
Util - D. Ortiz
Bench - M. Moreland
Bench - M. Izturis
DL - R. Furcal

SP - J. Lester
SP - C. Billingsly
RP - J. Walden
RP - S. Santos
P - E. O'Flaherty
P - J. Lopez
P - M. Dunn
Bench - W. Rodriguez
Bench - J. Zimmerman
Bench - J. Danks
DL - B. Lidge

Any thoughts? I'm leaning towards yes as much as I love Prado I have little faith in Billingsly for the long haul (see his last start against Pit).

Bills is very mediocre when it comes down to it. Great stuff but I don't see him doing anything spectacular. Prado is very solid, but Izturis won't kill you at second. Lee is a monster in all categories, especially helps in the CG which Bills has done 3 times in 139 starts. I'm giving this deal a thumbs up. Thanks for taking a look at mine.

Thanks RJ. Anyone else want to weigh in on this? Even a yes or no would be helpful.

Heck yeah! Lee is a Top 10, if not Top 5 pitcher. He'll be a beast the rest of the year.

Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray
