Trade Bats for Pitching?

Postby dangadd » Wed Apr 25, 2012 11:51 am

Hi,

I need some help. I'm in a 10 roto leage with 6x6 categories. I had 3 keepers (*) from last year.

Batting categories - HR, RBI, R, SB, AVG, 2B
Pitching categories - W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, QS

My team
C - McCann
1b - Cabrera (3b)(*)
2b- Uggla
3b - Sandoval (1b)(*)
SS - Aybar
OF - Kemp(*), Hart, Hunter
Util - Stanton
BN J Weeks, Ike Davis, Rollins

SP - Santana, Scherzer, Lincecum, Kennedy, Feliz
RP - Papelbon, Johnson, Santiago, Rodney, Storen(DL)

I am currently sat 4th (66 pts) but am way (34.5pts) behind the leader. I obviously would like to close the gap.

Most (41.5pts) of my points are in batting. So it looks obvious that my upgrades should be in pitching.
Even though it's early my pitching is killing me. Lincecum, Scherzer and Santana are not off to good starts.


I have just dropped Mark Reynolds for Jimmy Rollins (he was a FA). Was that a decent move?
Other FA's available are :-

Batting - Crawford(DL), Morrison, Maybin, Markakis, Montero, Crsip, Walker, Francoeur, Duda
Pitching - Wainwright, Latos, Pineda (DL), Lily, Kuroda, Masterson, Chacin


Do I start thinking of ditching Santana/Scherzer and getting someone off the WW?
Do I try and trade Lincecum? But what's he going to be worth?
Do I try and trade a bat? What could I reasonably expect to get for Panda, Cabrera or Kemp?

thanks for any/all of the help,

Dan

I'd drop Santana for Wainwright. Other than that don't get too caught up in 3 week's worth of stats. It is still early.

Thanks for the swift reply.

Assume you meant for Ike davis.
The reason I've kept him is that he gives me flexibility with Miggy and Panda both 1B and 3B eligible.

Who would you drop for Wainwright? Santana (It's the E variety not the J), Scherzer or Feliz. I'm thinking that order.
