My Matt Cain for Shane Victorino? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Sun Mar 18, 2012 10:03 pm

Boy, pitching was SO scarce because someone drafted 6 SPs in a row and we entered with keepers accounted for. That said, how does my team look? Any suggested trades or moves? Took a flier on Liriano because of the K potential... Any ideas on who i could package in a 2 for 1 to get one more Cain-level guy at the top?

Your team looks very good! I believe you will be fine at pitcher and your O is very solid. I believe both Liriano and Buerhle will have solid seasons and you already have Roy. good team

BUMP

I was just offered Shane Victorino for my Matt Cain. Yes or No? Would be huge to have the triples cornered between Victorino and Jackson. But I would need to be concerned about the top of my staff.

I would rather have Cain.

I think they're essentially equal in value (Victorino always seems underrated), but you really need the pitching. In a vacuum, that trade is fine, but considering the strengths and weaknesses of your team, you should hold on Cain.
