What is the Value of a Quality SP?

Postby JoJoTheWebToedBoy » Tue Jul 05, 2011 1:19 pm

Perhaps it's me. Maybe I put too much value on a good SP so I would pose the question, what is a good quality Pitcher worth? I play in a H2H, non keeper, 12 team league CATS are R,HR,RBI,SB,SO,OBP - W,L,S,K,ERA,Whip

Let's use J. Weaver as the example

W - 10
L - 4
K - 114
ERA - 1.92
Whip - 0.92

Good numbers for an SP. What would you say is an equivalant hitter. What class of batter would you expect in a trade?

Would it be someone in the M Cabrera class, maybe a B. Phillips or J. Francoeur group. Just curious.

Weaver is a top 10 pitcher this year so don't ever consider a Francoer type player.

Miggy is probably a bit too optimistic since great hitters are always worth more than a great pitcher. I think some names would be Jay Bruce, McCutchen, Konerko, Beltre, etc.

MIggy, Pujols, Bautista, Texiera are all too good for a 1-1 deal.

Over on tradebashers Weaver has been involved in a recent one-for-one trade with Youkilis. 76% preferred the Weaver side so that's about even. See the trade here http://www.tradebashers.com/mlb/users/b ... ukilis-bos

Other pitching studs in recent trades include
Lincecum 60%
vs.
Wright 40%

Sabathia 36%
vs.
Zimmerman 64%

Cliff Lee 68%
vs.
Nelson Cruz 32%
