Should I do this trade? WHIR

Postby amarlls » Wed Mar 21, 2012 4:51 pm

So I have a trade in the works where I give up McCutch for Rickie Weeks and Michael Bourn. It is a Standard Roto league 10 team
I only want to pick up another 2B because of the Utley situation and I can put Weeks in for Hill when Utley is back

Decent deal although I think I would rather have McCutchen. You don't need a 2B so I don't think I would trade an OF like McCutchen to get another one. Plus Weeks is an injury risk as well so why have two 2B that might miss a decent amount of games.

Yeah I don't see the benefit to you. Keep Cutch, IMO he is poised for a breakout season. A guy I am definitely targeting early and often in most of my drafts

I think the deal is decent too. I don't care for cutch a whole lot, he put up some weird contrasting numbers from 2010 to 2011. I like targeting players with high AVG. Weeks is a good acquisition, but you don't really need him, any chance you could get someone to replace viciedo in the deal instead of weeks?

Like the other responders, I think this is a pretty fair trade. I can see why you'd want an upgrade/extra 2B. Since you have other options, Weeks' injury concerns aren't as big of a deal.

However, I'd probably keep McCutchen. I think Bourn is highly overvalued this season. He's a one trick pony and steals can be gotten for much cheaper than him.

Help with mine?

You have crawford, gordon and somewhat Cargo that's enough for speed.
