A-Ram for Wandy? (WHIR)

Postby emenewe5 » Thu May 12, 2011 2:26 pm

Very deep, very competitive, season-long points league.

His A-Ram for my Wandy.

My pitching's been producing plenty of points but my bats have underwhelmed. I've got Ike Davis and Zim on the DL too, which isn't helping.

Would A-Ram be a good enough fill-in for Zim (and a UTI after he returns) to part with someone like Wandy?

I'm leaning towards no because I don't love A-Ram and I think Wandy's proven plenty over the past three years...just feeling the pressure to make a move to enhance my line-up and figure I'll need to trade from my current strength.

I like A-Ram. He always seems to produce, but he is prone to slumps. Still if you have deep pitching, this is ok.

I carried Aramis Ramirez on my team last year, much of it on the DL with various wrist issues.

He got hot in the second half, but he's streaky, injury prone, and on a poor team.

My 2 cents, keep your solid pitcher.

Well, Wandy's not winning games but he's got an ERA under 4 (where it's been for 4 straight years) and his K's are fine. So, I think he's actually pitching pretty good, IMO.

Still...it might be worth pulling the trigger on based on needs.

I just had a guy offer me Hafner for Arrieta...does that deal doing anything for anyone?!
