Verlander/Rasmus for my CarGo?

Postby grumpy77 » Fri May 27, 2011 5:54 pm

Very trades go through in this league because everyone is usually too afraid to get ripped off and hear about it all year. This one was proposed to me today, and it caught my eye. Might help both teams, but wondering if I should ask for more or accept it before he gets second thoughts.

HIS:
Justin Verlander
Colby Rasmus

FOR MY:
Carlos Gonzalez

Standard Yahoo 5X5, 12 teams. I'm currently 3rd in Runs, 1st in HRs, middle of the pack BA and RBI, but second to last in steals. Pitching, I'm 3rd to last in Ws and Ks, 2nd in saves, and middle of the pack in ERA and WHIP.

Here's the roster:

C: Yadier Molina (Joe Mauer)
1B: Todd Helton (Ike Davis and Kendry Morales)
2B: Ben Zobrist
3B: Jose Bautista
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera
OF: Carlos Gonzalez, Jayson Werth, Mike Stanton
UTIL: Carlos Beltran/Alfonso Soriano
BN: Alfonso Soriano, Ike Davis, Joe Mauer

SP: Felix Hernandez, Roy Oswalt, Gio Gonzalez, Tim Hudson, AJ Burnett, Bud Norris
RP: Leo Nunez, John Axford
BN: Brad Lidge, Johan Santana

What do you guys think? Pull the trigger and drop a starter to gain in W's, K's, WHIP, and ERA? OR Hang tight and let Carlos do his thing?

Tempting. Does he have any outfielders better than Rasmus?

I might seek out someone a bit better than Rasmus only because of how cold he is right now but I'd probably accept that trade myself because I think Rasmus will heat up again once Pujols wakes up.

Help me out:

First, drop Santana. He's not going to help you in 2011. Are any good pure speed guys available on the waiver wire (Juan Pierre and the like)? If so, I take this deal, and try to pick up a pure SB guy to help out in that category. You need help on your pitching stats, and Verlander supplies that.
