R Zimm/Hellickson for Lee or Lincecum? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Thu Jul 14, 2011 5:49 pm

I really think I need another ACE in my rotation and then I'll have the championship in my league locked down. I already own Bautista, so do you think it's a smart move to deal Zimmerman and another piece in order to acquire Cliff Lee or Lincecum? My league is a 12-man H2H non-keeper.

Here is my roster:
C - V Martinez
1st - Votto
2nd - Pedroia
3rd - Zimmerman
SS - S Castro
OF - Granderson
OF - Ellsbury
OF - Bautista
Util - Morse

Bench: Alexi Ram, Werth

SPs:
Verlander
Kershaw
Hellickson
Liriano
Cueto
Vogelsong

RPs:
Marmol
Bailey
Storen
Bastardo

DL: Putz, Oswalt

Well you already have a few aces in Kershaw and Verlander. But you need to weigh the benefit of the improvement of Lee over Hellickson (or whoever you trade) vs the cost you pay in the decrease of losing Zimmerman and playing Alexei or Werth as your UTIL. I would only do it if you're getting a top notch pitcher.


Help mine?

you have pretty good starting pitching as is. but if you could do hellickson and zimmerman for Lee i would. i think hellickson wont have a good 2nd half and u have another 3B.

if you can do it I guess I would and then you'd have a better option than Werth moving Joey Bats to 3b. I hope...

not an amazing deal, but it would help your team...

you could shift Joey to 3B, and Aram to UTIL...not much of a downgrade on offense
