Trade Holliday for Lester/Cahill? WHIR

Postby dnielsen2342648 » Sat Jul 09, 2011 1:12 pm

Roster is at bottom. About a month ago I evaluated my team and decided they were horrible and had no chance to contend against some very solid teams in the league. I traded pretty much all of my pitching in an effort to get 4 top-tier keepers for next season and beyond (Miggy, Votto, Reyes, and not sure of 4th yet).

My team has since climbed to 7th place (top six make playoffs), so if I can get some pitching depth back w/out compromising my keepers, I'd like to.

Offer on the table:

My Holliday and Arroyo

for

Lester, Cahill, and Derek Lowe
_____

Lester's injury makes me nervous, but he's obviously a stud. The other team has CC, so I'm hoping I can get him instead of Lester and I'd make the trade.

Thoughts??? Should I just stand pat, hope that when Reyes gets back I can crush teams w/ offense and get lucky on a few pitching stats each week?
________

12 team, H2H, Mixed, 2-4 keepers

I'd just stay put and keep bats bro, with such few keepers.

1b Miguel Cabrera
C/UTL Joey Votto
OF Matt Holliday
SS Jose Reyes

are your keepers. I wish you kept 6 so you could keep Ellsbury and McCann too.

yeah, I don't think you should give up one of your keepers just to get a pitcher. Stay put or trade a non-keeper for an arm.

Agreed, since you should keep Holliday, try trading somebody else for some better pitching.

Is Holliday going to be a keeper? Looking at your team, you have Harper on your bench, so I'm assuming you're keeping him, because he isn't going to sniff the bigs this year. So if you can swap CC I say you do this deal. Wondering what bats and pitchers are on your wire.

You should probably keep Harper, so Holliday seems to be expendable. If you can get CC in the deal I'd do it. If you're getting Lester, I don't like it nearly as much.

+1. Try and get CC, then this is a great deal for you.

I think you should counter-propose with Your Holliday and Arroyo for his Sabathia and Cahill.

Thanks for the input everyone!

Current offer stands at Holliday, Scherzer, Arroyo, Johan Santana for Sabathia and Lester.

What does everyone think? Getting two studs, but I'm giving up a decent amount.

Better to just to for Sabathia/Cahill for Holliday/Arroyo?

Leave a link and I'll help you out!

Also, looks like the other owner is planning on dropping Tomlin in the trade, so I could probably get him back as well.

Other WW options include:

SP's, Lilly, Karstens, Myers, Wolf, Harang, McClellan, Freddy garcia, Capuano, Zito
Position players, Abreu, Grady Sizemore, Bay, Morrison, Tabata

So, there's a few decent OF options on the WW...interesting stuff.

Leave a link and I'll help you out. Thanks.
