Holliday\Oswalt for Verlander?

Postby knittedmonkey » Thu Jun 09, 2011 5:11 pm

I was offered this lucrative deal for Verlander. I know its a great offer, but my pitching isnt overly deep and I dont have a lot of trust in Oswalt. Holliday battling injuries also doesn't geek me up. Your thought?

I get : Holliday\Oswalt\Tomlin
I give: Verlander

My Team:
C- Avila
1B-Pujols
2B-ACraig
SS- Tulo
3B- Aram
OF - Cruz, Moreland, Morrison
UT- Dunn
BN- D Brown

SP - Halladay, Verlander, Shields, T Hudson, E Santana, Liriano
RP - Santos, Farnsworth, Venters, M Adams

Even know Holliday is tempting I think I would pass if it was me. Even know you could use another outfielder I think I would still pass. You also have Nelson Cruz who is injury prone. Don't want 2 headaches on your team. Also Oswalt has back problems and is not pitching great.(I am from Philly and I see it first hand..he lost some velocity on his fastball) I would stick with what you have or counter offer and try to get a better pitcher back. Plus you would also have to drop two players with this deal. Hope that helps.
