Which pitcher

Postby Surfs up » Fri Jun 17, 2011 9:16 am

I have David Price but have been offer Max Scherzer straight up for him. Both have two years left in a 6 player 5x5 keeper.Thoughts?

No way, Price is dirty. Scherzer is a much bigger risk to me. I'd stick with Price on this one.

What if about Oswalt instead of Price for Max?

Definitely keep Price over Scherzer. Oswalt is a bit closer, but I'd still hold off.

I definitely like Price over Scherzer, but depending on contract years I would consider Oswalt. If you would get him for two or more years, I would go for Oswalt. I just think he will get more wins in the long run and Price is more sporadic.

Tommy Hanson went on the DL today and his owner asked me if I wanted to trade Oswalt for Hanson straight up. I have a DL spot open . It would give me a chance to look at another starter while Hanson is on the DL. I could end up keeping the DL replacement and drop somebody else when Hanson comes back or drop the replacement. Hanson would give me lots more K's and is much younger. He can also be kept two more years after this year. Thoughts on this new twist?

I'd be all over that deal. Hanson is already better then Oswalt, and the gap only figures to widen as time goes on. Plus I don't think his injury is particularly serious.
