Weaver for Holliday? WHIR

Postby tommo » Tue May 31, 2011 3:21 pm

Currently in a 12 Team H2H Points league with one keeper (Players eligible if drafted in 6th round or later) Would I be hurting my rotation too much giving up Weaver for Holliday? My offense would be nasty, but I think it'd hurt my pitching too much. My OF has been good so far. I've already tried to make a move for Hanley, but he doesn't seem interested in giving him up. He's looking for starting pitchers though. What do you guys think?

My team:
C: Carlos Santana
1B: Joey Votto
2B: Martin Prado
3B: Jose Bautista
SS: Yunel Escobar
OF: Carlos Gonzalez
OF: Colby Rasmus
OF: Andrew McCutchen
U: Eric Hosmer
Reserves: Casey McGehee, Rafael Furcal, Domonic Brown, Angel Pagan, Jose Tabata

SP: Jered Weaver
SP: Roy Oswalt
SP: Shaun Marcum
SP: Jaime Garcia
SP: Jhoulys Chacin
SP: Jeremy Hellickson
SP: Kyle McClellan
RP: Carlos Marmol

His team:
Pence, Hunter RF HOU
Young, Michael 3B TEX
Cabrera, Melky LF KC
Howard, Ryan 1B PHI
Holliday, Matt LF STL
Bourn, Michael CF HOU
Kendrick, Howard 2B ANA
Victorino, Shane CF PHI
Aybar, Erick SS ANA
Avila, Alex C DET
Ramirez, Hanley SS FLA
Cuddyer, Michael 1B MIN
Utley, Chase 2B PHI

Zambrano, Carlos SP CHC
Cain, Matt SP SF
Dempster, Ryan SP CHC
Papelbon, Jonathan RP BOS
Vogelsong, Ryan RP SF
Putz, J.J. RP ARI
Beachy, Brandon SP ATL
Liriano, Francisco SP MIN
Matusz, Brian SP BAL

Why do you have so few pitchers? Inning/start limit? Only one closer?

And why so many bench bats?

No inning or start limits. We start either 5 starters and a reliever or 4 starters and 2 relievers. The guys on my bench seem more valuable than the pitchers available on the waiver wire.

If it were me I'd stick with Weaver who's having a lights out year. I think you can get away with the OF you have since you have Bautista, Votto, Prado. Without Weaver you still have decent pitching, but some unprovens there...

adjust rosters daily or weekly?

Because in daily leagues you want a bench full of pitching for the most part. Either way I wouldn't do this trade.

We set rosters weekly. Would you guys do the trade for Hanley?

He's too much of a question mark this season.

Normally I would take Holliday over Weaver in a heartbeat but not now.

Holliday seems to be bothered by a few injuries and god knows how many game he'll sit out this season. Weaver is also performing like a top 5 sp this season.

Your outfield is solid and Hosmer at Util should be good enough imo.
