McCutchen for Teixeira? WHIR

Postby silverZ » Mon Apr 09, 2012 4:21 pm

7x7 league with OPS and BB. I'm leaning towards taking it then moving ARod for an OF with speed...Thoughts?

C: Arencibia
1B: Mcab
2B: Johnson
3B: Zimmerman
SS: Yunel Escobar
CI: Arod
MI: Cozart
4 OF: McCutchen, Bruce, Gordon, Swisher
Util: Cain
Bench: Fowler
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I would do it personally, but a lot of people are on the McCutch bandwagon. I am not one of them.

1 - You're moving an OF with speed so you can ultimately trade for an OF with speed??

2 - I love A-Rod at CI.

I'm thinking that Teix + OF I trade Arod for is better than McCutchen + Arod...Or is it? :-?

I also love ARod at CI at the moment, but how long until his age catches up to him this season? :-?

I think A-Rod is in for a big season, so I would stay put if I was you. Tex will only bring your AVG down.

What OF with speed are you going to target? McCutchen is one of the better OF with a great speed/power combo that you can't find really outside of Kemp, Upton or Braun and I don't think ARod will get you any of those guys. I would rather have McCutchen and Arod.

Very good points guys. Now I'm leaning towards keeping The Dread Pirate...

How about if I just move ARod to my utility spot then target a cheaper pure speedster like Gardner with Gordon or a pitcher? I don't like the idea of basing a trade on the ability to make a 2nd trade though...

Thanks a lot for all the input. I'm off to opening day at the dome now! :-D :-D :-D
