Victorino and Lohse for... WHIR

Postby CyboNinja » Sun Jun 05, 2011 7:13 pm

Who should I try to target for those 2? Right now my SP is where I am weak so I am trying to target a top end SP. I sent out 1 offer so far
Victo and Lohse for Cliff Lee. I sent it out 2 days ago and it looks like hes still considering it. Haven't received any counters yet. Is that reaching too much or is that a fair offer?

Here is my everyday lineup.
C- M Weiters
1b- J Votto
2b- C Utley
3b- P Polonco (Sandoval back soon)
SS- D Jeter
LF- C Crawford
CF- M Bourn (S Victorino
RF- M Joyce
Util- E Hosmer
Util- D Brown (Phillies)
BN- B Lawrie
BN- B Harper
BN- S Victorino

My biggest problem is that I have too many Phillies. It burned me twice this past week. If the Phillies run into a good pitcher that day my team is screwed so I'm trying to shake things up a bit. I do have Panda coming off the DL next week so that will help. I really need some better starters though. I'd list my starters but tbh, I'm kind of embarrassed by them. I'll just say that Matt Latos is my #1 and leave it at that.

Any help very much appreciated and as always will be returned. Thanks.

This depends alot on the other guys needs. I think it's a fair deal but you could possible sweeten it up a bit more if you feel Lee is the missing piece.

Not to gloat but as bad as your pitchers sound here's mine... Halladay/Weaver/Jurrgens/Pineda/A. Sanchez/Bucholtz.

Thanks for help on mine.

My pitching was good but I traded it all away for Votto and Crawford. This team was horrible when I inherited it. It took me a whole season and part of this one just to get my offense halfway decent. I need more HRs though...

I like this deal for you.

You're selling high to grab Lee off of a few sketchy starts and that's a good thing.

In the end, Lee will help you.

I think it's a fair offer, and if Lee gets back on track it's a good deal for you. My only issue is that I don't believe Lee will be as good as he's supposed to be. But, that's just me. If you like it, go for it.

I had Latos as my best pitcher for a while. (Latos/Cain/Nolasco/Chacin/Lilly/Matusz/something I dropped quickly was my draft...) If you watch the WW, you can pick up some good ones though. :)

Well I didn't end up getting Lee but I managed to snag Cole Hamels. Also freed up a spot so I can add Rizzo!
