Castro for Hellickson? WHIR

Postby Conrax » Mon Apr 02, 2012 12:08 pm

This is a 16 team, H2H cats, up to 6 keepers

Cats:
Batter: R, HR, RBI, SB, K, AVG
Pitching: ERA, W, L, K, WHIP, SV+HD

Here is the situation, I was not able to make my draft for this because of an emergency that came up. So, (naturally) the bot just screws everything up by giving me 4 SSs (2 I kept and 2 the bot drafted). I have since been looking for either a SP, a 2B, or possibly an OF.

The actual trade:
Send Starlin Castro, ChC SS from SS to sabres
Receive Jeremy Hellickson, TB SP from sabres to Bench

Should I do this trade or hold out for something better. I will reply back just leave link.

My roster:
C Miguel Montero, Ari C
1B Paul Konerko, CWS 1B, DH
2B Omar Infante, Mia 2B
3B Adrian Beltre, Tex 3B
SS Starlin Castro, ChC SS
OF Drew Stubbs, Cin OF
OF Corey Hart, Mil OF
OF Carlos Beltran, StL OF
UTIL Asdrubal Cabrera, Cle SS
Bench Jimmy Rollins, Phi SS
Bench Jhonny Peralta, Det SS
Bench Torii Hunter, LAA OF
Bench John Mayberry Jr., Phi OF
Bench Mike Aviles, Bos 2B, 3B


P Daniel Hudson, Ari SP
P Anibal Sanchez, Mia SP
P Homer Bailey, Cin SP
SP Colby Lewis, Tex SP
SP Doug Fister, Det SP
RP Rafael Betancourt, Col RP
RP Alfredo Aceves, Bos RP
RP Antonio Bastardo, Phi RP

Yep. Much prefer Castro.

bwahahahaha!!! Totally agree with this. ;-D

For the record, this is coming from a guy who likes and owns HellBoy. Definitely overhyped, but should produce into a great #3 pitcher or solid #2 at best. But who really knows.... :-?

Yeah- I'm counting on Hellickson to be my #3. Anything more would be gravy.

You definitely should be getting more for Castro imo. Don't accept this trade.

Terrible offer. Hellickson is a much better pitcher in real life than in fantasy. He doesn't strike anyone out.

If you want another SP for Castro you should be looking at a Haren, Greinke, Price, Cain, Weaver type arm.

Don't forget also that at age 22 Starlin has the potential of being one of your best keeper options. Next year he has an outside chance of being the second best SS in the league, and he already is probably #3 based on Hanleys performance last year. Now to trade him for a 3rd tier SP?

Was Starlin Your keeper? if not how the hell did he not get kept? In a keeper league that guy is like gold. I would veto that trade in my non keeper league. He will only get better too.
