Will this trade help me move up?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Thu Jun 09, 2011 4:42 pm

13 team, NL-only 23 active rosters, keeper league, 4x4 roto style. Currently sit in 6th place, but only 3 points out of 3rd. My offense is terrific as I have 60 total points and 43 are from my offense. But that of course leads to my problem...my pitching. If I could just move up in wins, ERA and WHIP I would be golden. I am 6th in ERA, 10th in saves, 12th in wins but only 2 wins away from moving up a point and 7 from moving up 5 points. I am also 10th in WHIP. SO it makes sense for me to get some quality starters or just hope mine turn it on.

I have been offered Jason Hammel and Daniel Hudson for my Chris B. Young and Wilton Lopez.

What do you think? Or should I make sure I get an OF in return to give up Young? His Outfielders are Seth Smith, Victorino, Berkman, Hart, Heisy. ANy thoughts would be great and leave your links!

My Lineup:
C-Hannigan
C-Navarro
1B-Overbay
2B-Barney
3B-McGehee
SS-A. Gonzalez
MI-DeWitt
CI-Wood
OF-Bourn
OF-Ethier
OF-CarGO
OF-YOung
OF-R. ROberts
UTI-Bonifacio
BN-Morgan

P-Bills
P-Gorzo
P-Hernandez
P-Ubaldo
P-Latos
P-Luebke
P-W.Lopez
P-Oswalt
P-Padilla

BN-Cashner
BN-Kuo
BN-Broxton

This is a very tough decision, but Hudson does have good strikeout numbers so he should improve your pitching staff. I'm not a big fan of Hammel though, I think you should either ask for a different pitcher or get another OF in the trade.

I like the idea of getting the OF. Tough one, but I am not yet sold. Good luck.

What if I got him to trade me Lilly or Volquez and Hudson plus Seth Smith for Young and Lopez? Or should I just stay put and hope my starters come around?

I agree with this advice. Hudson is a good get, but Hammel is not great, and your giving up a very strong hitter in Young.
Get another SP or trade for an OF replacement for Young.

I like this trade for you a lot better, and I would prob have to choose Lilly over Volquez just because there is no telling what Volquez is going to do the rest of the season. Volquez is certainly the better choice if you are looking for K's though.
