Postby Paws » Wed May 25, 2011 10:14 pm

I have been offer Billy Butler for Shawn Marcum. I am in a 14 team mix rotto league Catagory are (R, HR, TB,RBI, BB, SB and BA) and (K, W, Sv, Hd, BAA, ERA, and WHIP).

My pitching is pretty good. I have about 70 points. However hitting is really weak about 25 points.

J.P. Arencibia, Tor C
Carlos Pena, ChC 1B
Orlando Hudson, SD 2B DTD
Chone Figgins, Sea 2B, 3B
J.J. Hardy, Bal SS
Scott Sizemore, Det 2B
Scott Rolen, Cin 3B
Denard Span, Min OF
Hunter Pence, Hou OF

Jonny Gomes, Cin OF
Alfonso Soriano, ChC UT
Bench
Andre Ethier, LAD OF DTD

Is this fair trade? Wil it improve my hitting enough to be worth while?

It will improve your offense, since I can tell you want to get rid of Figgins. However, it is a very lopsided trade because Marcum has been VERY effective so far, while Butler is having his first good year.
