Mad Max/Upton Trade,, as always, WHIR

Postby Bravos of Steel » Mon Jun 13, 2011 2:22 pm

Hey guys,

I was just offered Max Scherzer for my B.J. Upton and Michael Cuddyer. Upton and Cuddyer are both kind of "on the fence" of cracking my starting lineup (Cuddyer has been starting for me lately). I'm pretty short on pitching, which is why I'm considering it. But is it good value for Scherzer? Leave a link, and I'll give you my all. Standard 12 team 5X5 yahoo league, 4 man keeper.

C- Russell Martin
1B - Mark Teixeira
2B - Michael Cuddyer
3B - Kevin Youklis
SS - Jimmy Rollins
OF - Andrew McCutchen
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Andre Ethier
Util. - B.J. Upton
SP - Felix Hernandez

I really like Scherzer, so I'd make the trade. I think the value you're getting is pretty good, especially being short on pitchers.

Help with mine please?

Definitely do this trade, you can find players on the FA that will give you numbers better then BJ's right now. So essentially it is Cuddyer for Scherzer which is a great trade for you, especially since you need pitching.

No way I do this trade. Cuddyer is heating up, Upton can garner you some quality on name alone with some power, runs, rbi's and steals, and you're getting a pitcher that has an ERA over 4 and a .279 BAA....... No thanks!

I thin Upton for Shcherzer 1-for-1 is fair but (1) Upton is your only real SB threat outside of McCutchen....Rolllins doesn't run much anymore, and (2) if you're losing BOTH BJ and Scherzer I'd go for a slightly better SP.

see mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=433237&p=3416272#p3416272

I wouldn't do it. You can get a better starter for that combo.
