Stanton for Garcia? WHIR

Postby TexasStampede » Tue Jun 07, 2011 5:11 pm

I'm in a 12 team H2H ultra comeptitive league with 8x8 scoring (5 -player keeper)

Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Batting Average (AVG)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Innings Pitched (IP), Wins (W), Losses (L), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

I proposed BJ Upton for Jaime Garcia, he came back and countered with Mike Stanton for Garcia. I'm looking to improve my pitching because I'm near last in Wins, and keep splitting K's, ERA and WHIP depending on the matchups.

Here's my lineup:

C- JP Arencibai
1B - Miguel Cabrera
2B - Kelly Johnson
SS - Troy Tulowitizki
3B - Jose Bautista
OF - BJ Upton
OF - Matt Joyce
OF - Rajai Davis
UT - Mike Stanton

bench: SS Jed Lowrie and OF Juan Pierre

Tim Lincecum, David Price, Mat Latos, Ricky Nolasco, Daniel Hudson, Justin Masterson, Brian Matusz, & Charlie Morton

RPs: Jordan Walden, Drew Storen, Fernando Salas and Mark Zrep (SP Holds)

Should I sacrifice a little power to get one more quality arm in this format?

I think you can do better for Stanton. Probably can get a tier 1 pitcher for him I would imagine. Maybe try to buy low on Cliff Lee.

No way I do this deal. And it's a keeper, makes it even worse. I'm not an Upton fan, but I'm really surprised the other manager didn't accept the other deal, Upton gives you everything in your league except for AVG.
