Lind + Marcum for Bruce - WHIR

Postby SleuterBomber » Sun Jun 12, 2011 1:20 pm

12 Team ESPN H-to-H League, standard 5x5

My team:

C - Carlos Santana
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Dustin Pedroia
3B - Kevin Youkilis
SS - Jimmy Rollins
2B/SS - Dan Uggla
1B/3B - Billy Butler
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Justin Upton
OF - Jayson Werth
OF - Ichiro Suzuki
OF - Logan Morrison
Util - Domonic Brown
BN - Justin Turner
BN - Daniel Murphy
BN - Travis Hafner

P - Max Scherzer
P - Justin Masterson
P - Wandy Rodriguez
P - Jordan Zimmerman
P - John Axford
P - Joel Hanrahan
P - Collmenter/Stauffer/Hand (streaming purposes this week)
DL - Brandon Beachy

I know I need the pitching help, but Bruce has been my best hitter so far this season. I could have traded Uggla straight up for Marcum (most likely) a few weeks ago, but I tried getting more for Uggla.

I get Lind in return here, but I already have Pujols/Butler for my 1B/CI positions, and would then lose flexibility at Util as one of them would have to man that spot every day.

What say you? Take it? Decline? Counter?

Your pitching is not that bad. Go for a cheaper alternative
Thanks, Will Help in Return

I'd counter offer with Werth for Marcum. That's probably not enough but I think you should be able to get a lot more in return for Bruce.

If i traded away Bruce id be looking for a Verlander/Lincecum/Lee type pitcher.
Marcum is good, but not Bruce good. There arent many legit 40 HR threats out there.
