Trade for a solid starter...? WHIR 100%

Postby billycent » Thu May 19, 2011 10:36 pm

Does my team need 1 more ace type starter or can I get by with what I have/waiver wire? I would most certainly have to give up some offense as I've tried to package a closer with 1 of my lower tier starters for an upgrade w/no success. Leave a link and I got u right back.

my guess is you're going to have to give up a big bat to acquire a top flight SP. I'd go the waiver wire route.

hope this helps.

Yeah I think you have enough top-end pitching. Of course if a great deal comes your way where you can buy-low on a top SP or sell-high on one of your bats that you think will cool, you can always trade for value.

But I agree that you shouldn't consider another ace as a huge need right now for your team.

Buy low on Liriano right now, before his next start. If you can't do that, stick with what you've got and ride the wire. You've got some niice SP guys there. Ogando might bow out of the SP position before the end of the year, so he's a possible guy you could trade.

I don't think you need an ace. Lester should be a fine #1, Price should be a good #2. I think Ogando/Narveson/Bailey will be good back of the rotation starters, but you could use a middle of the rotation guy. Try to buy low on someone like Latos/Gallardo/Carpenter/Wandy/Danks. I'd try to sell high on Brantley for one of those guys.
