2 potential trades. I need pitching depth!

Postby Da'Markus Russell » Mon Apr 02, 2012 5:05 pm

I'm in a 12 team league that drafted yesterday. A lot of people were reaching on pitchers early (8 went in the Top 28) so I kind of got left behind there. I've been offered 2 trades from the same guy for pitching upgrades. Which one should I take (if any)
?

Trade 1:
I give: Gallardo, Billy Butler
I get: Felix Hernandez

Trade 2:
I give: Billy Butler
I get: Matt Latos

I'm leaning towards Trade 2 because I think Gallardo will have a breakout year. What are your thoughts on this? Also, this is my team:

C: Yadier Molina
1B: Votto
2B: Ricky Weeks
3B: Sandoval
SS: Andrus
OF: C. Gonzalez
OF: Michael Bourn
OF: Jason Heyward
UTL: Billy Butler
UTL: Nick Markakis
UTL: Willingham
Bench: Bonifacio
Bench: Gamel
Bench: Valencia

SP: Gallardo
SP: Bumgarner
SP: Beachy
SP: Chris Carpenter (DL)
SP: Gavin Floyd
SP: Liriano
RP: Bailey (DL)
RP: Luebke (sp and rp eligible)
RP: Matt Thornton

Thanks!

i like deal 2. Deal 1 is ok but I think Gallardo is closer to Felix than most think.

I actually like your starting staff as-is. But since you have Votto at 1B and Bonifacio rotting on your bench as things stand now, trade Butler for Latos.

Also, it's worth mentioning that both Assists and Double Plays Turned are both counted as stats. This probably devalues Butler as a utility player a little bit.
