Crucial week upcoming; Could use some trade advice (WHIR)

Postby Frappy » Sat Aug 06, 2011 6:23 pm

So here's the situation:

I'm in a 12-team non-keeper H2H points league; my team is currently in 1st by a game, and I'm facing the 2nd place team this upcoming week. The other team has been white-hot, and I've been looking around for a couple of weeks now trying to find some good two-start options to beef up my rotation with.

This division pays out nicely for division winners as well as for the number one overall team. This upcoming week pretty much decides all of that for me.

Here's what I have from one guy in terms of offers --

His Scott Baker for my Neil Walker ($7 cap relief)
His Daniel Hudson for my Neil Walker and Gio Gonzalez. ($16 cap relief)

I already have Dustin Ackley playing 2B, so trading away Walker is not a major bother for me. I really want Daniel Hudson, but I know that I'd be giving up quite a bit to land the guy. If the guy offered Baker straight up for Walker, then I think I could get more value out of him with my Walker/Gio package. From here on out, I think Hudson and Gio will hold equal value and, with Walker riding my bench, I don't really lose any production going forward.

Could anyone offer his or her opinion on this?

I personally think Hudson has the must upside and consistency of the three pitchers. (D-Backs have been red hot) Baker is not consistent enough, and Gio doesn't get the support on a bad A's lineup.

Go with the Hudson deal. Free's up some relief too.
