Starlin Castro for McCutchen

Postby 14jcleary » Mon Apr 30, 2012 12:35 am

Standard league, 8 person H2H, 12 pitchers can start per week. My team is:
C: Miguel Montero
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Dustin Pedroia
3B: Aramis Ramirez
SS: Starlin Castro
2B/SS: Rickie Weeks
1B/3B: Kevin Youkilis
OF: Matt Holliday
OF: BJ Upton
OF: Desmond Jennings
OF: Drew Stubbs
OF: Austin Jackson
UTIL: Nick Markakis
BE: Alex Rodriguez

P: Tim Lincecum
P: CC Sabathia
P: John Axford
P: Glo Gonzalez
P: Jon Lester
P: Joe Nathan
P: Daniel Bard
P: Anibal Sanchez
P: Shaun Marcum
BE: Matt Cain
BE: Jaime Garcia

I give Starlin Castro
I get Andrew McCutchen

I'd end up dropping Markarkis probably for a free agent SS like Ian Desmond or Alexel Ramirez

Do this trade?

I like McCutchen more than Castro BUT he plays a way weaker position and probably has about the same value.. In your shoes I would prob not make that trade..

Why is A-Rod on your bench?

I wouldn't take it. Castro is keeping your team in elite speed, and McCutcheon really isn't showing the power you need to make this trade worthwhile. You also have so many options in the outfield and Utility, whereas your SS options are very light. Pass.
