Trade Help

Postby tidefan94 » Sun Jun 26, 2011 10:39 pm

Im in a 10 team H2H 5x5 league. In my league pitching is very easily available on the WW (i stream most weeks). Pitchers available on the WW are: Ricky Romero, Mat Latos, Wandy, etc. In the draft I focused on batting knowing this and got the team I wanted. For 2B I drafted Gordon Beckham (which didn't really work out) and now have Ryan Roberts. I'm trying to now upgrade 2B.

I proposed
GIVE: Jhoulys Chacin, Ryan Roberts
RECIEVE: Ian Kinsler

I did this because I think Chacin can only do worse from here plus I've heard of an innings limit. Also Kinsler has been good but not great this season and I think hes in for a great second half. He counter-proposed that I also throw in Andrew McCutchen, but get Drew Stubbs. I'm still thinking of accepting. Should I do the trade? And aren't McCutchen and Stubbs more or less the same (so they don't really matter in the trade)?

My team is:
C: Yadier Molina
1B: Adrien Gonzalez
2B: Ryan Roberts
3B: Ryan Zimmerman
SS: Hanely Ramirez
OF: Matt Kemp
OF: Andrew McCutchen
OF: Mike Stanton
UTIL: Brett Gardner
BENCH: Shin-Shoo Choo (injury)
DL: Ike Davis

SP: Matt Cain
SP: Jhoulys Chacin
SP: Madison Bumgarner
SP: Ian Kennedy
SP: Shaun Marcum
RP: Heath Bell

Tough call...if you think you can absorb the hit to batting average, I have no problem with this trade including Stubbs for McCutchen. For Kinsler's upside, and the avialability of good pitching on the ww, I would pull the trigger.

help with mine?
