Need Pitching.. WHIR

Postby Cream » Wed Jul 20, 2011 6:39 pm

Hey guys, in a 12 team H2H league with 8 keepers. A guy is shopping Verlander, Price and Shields and is interested in getting some hitting back. I've posted both teams below. He has expressed interest in Young, ARam, Cruz, and Melky (I specifically said Cano, Braun and Kemp were unavailable). What's a fair deal to get Price? I feel like Cruz and Melky would be a good starting point, but then I'm left a little thin in my OF.

My team:
C- Posada
1B- Moreland
2B- Cano
SS- Hardy
3B- Aramis Ramirez
MI- M. Young
CI- Belt
LF- Braun
CF- Kemp
RF- Cruz
OF- Pagan
UTIL- Melky
BN- Rios
BN- Soriano
BN- Jennings
DL- Wright

SP- Ubaldo
SP- Lewis
SP- Chacin
SP- Wandy
SP- Nolasco
RP- Santos
RP- Frank Frank
RP- Thornton
RP- Motte
RP- Parnell
BN- Beachy
BN- Pelfrey
BN- Hellickson
DL- Wainwright


His Team:
C- Mauer
1B- Gaby
2B- Uggla
SS- Theriot
3B- D. Murphy
MI- K. Johnson
CI- Smoak
LF- LoMo
CF- Bourn
RF- J. Upton
OF- Francoeur
UTIL- HArt
BN- I. Desmond
BN- Loney
DL- ARod

SP- Verlander
SP- Price
SP- Myers
SP- Miller
SP- Harang
RP- Bard
RP- Clippard
RP- Belisle
RP- Farnsworth
RP- O'Flaherty
BN- Burnett
BN- Shields
BN- Gallardo
BN- Carrasco
DL- Zambrano
DL- Oswalt

Any thoughts - I know it is a long message. WHIR!

If you could get a conversation going by offering Cruz/Melky that would be great. Price is really darned good and he hasn't been pitching that well lately so it is a good time to buy. Honestly I think Cruz/Melky should be enough to peak interest and could be enough. Maybe use some crap like Pelfrey to soften the blow to his pitching if he doesn't want two outfielders. Maybe M. Young+Pelfrey for Price + an MI. Aram has been a beast and I imagine you could get close to Price for A-Ram alone right now. That would be a nice deal for you as well.

I like the aramis for price idea. Maybe you could include a Hellickson with Cruz and go after Verlander.
Hellickson has put up real nice numbers this year but will probably be getting shut down soon.

Check Mine?

How about Aramis and Melky for Verlander. It seems he wants two hitters for one of the pitchers. We also have the ability to trade draft picks

Aramis for Price makes a lot of sense for both sides.

Go for it.
