Been offered Ubaldo for Lewis WHIR!!!

Postby Bonger » Wed Apr 18, 2012 10:11 am

I don't normally come looking for trade help, but this one has me stymied. I've been offered Ubaldo and Bard for Colby Lewis.

10 team H2H points keeper league with deeep benches. We keep 6 so no player in the deal factors into keepers.

I am no Ubaldo fan.....at the same time I am no Lewis fan, but he is serviceable, good for wins, and appatrantly an ace for the first month of this year. I would never try to trade for Ubaldo, but I can't help but think if this isn't a deal I have to take.

To be able to roster Bard I would need to drop Drabek or Lynn..I don't know if that is worth doing.

We start 5, my SPs are:

Greinke
Price
Kennedy
Shields
Holland

Lewis
Floyd
Oswalt
Drabek
Lynn

Here are their points for the year so far. Ubaldo is first followed by Lewis:

IN 12 20
GS 2 3
QS 1 3
CG 0 0
W 1 2
L 0 0
K 8 22
BBI 6 1
HA 10 20
ERA 4.5 1.83
WHIP 1.333 1.068
FPTS 22 73

I would take it. Lewis is solid but Ubaldo and Bard have more upside. Good deal for you.

please help

I think I would stay put. The only guy I like more than Lewis is Bard and even that I am not sure about.

I would not make the deal. Ubaldo is garbage and bard has command issues. He walked in a run for crying out loud. You would be dealing away a good proven healthy pitcher for a couple chumps.
