McCutchen trade!! WHIR!!!

Postby bpizle » Tue Mar 20, 2012 8:58 pm

Guys in a tough spot here. Guy has offered me Ian Kennedy for McCutchen in a CBS platinum league in which wins count 7 points. Very pitcher heavy league, most successful teams have 2-3 starting pitchers. I have Roy Halladay as my ace, but after that there is a drop off between my #2 guy. And, I have Ichiro on the bench who could replace McCutchen and still be a "solid" option. Take a look at my scoring system and my roster to see my subs! And also, i have always used baseball moster website for my trade evaluations, and this says do the deal because of the heavily valued pitching. Thank you guys, and please help!! ;-D WHIR

i wouldn't. AM is worth more.
Garcia and D Hudson are solid. Wandy isn't bad.
I would try to replace Lewis with a FA SP.
You don't need 3 2B.
Start Kendrick, drop KJ or Ackely, and get a FA SP.

No. I realize that Kennedy would be a pretty solid #2 for you but there is some worry that he won't repeat last years numbers. McCutchen is on the way up and I think you could get a more sure thing of a starter for him.

I'd keep McCutchen. Don't expect Kennedy to repeat 21Ws

Ok. Thanks guys, a new guy countered with a new offer. Brian Wilson for Ichiro. Right now Ichiro is riding my bench, and quite frankly Wilson is a stud at RP. Points wise I think its almost even. What should i DO?
