Trout for T. Hanson

Postby tburtn88 » Tue May 01, 2012 1:00 am

I am in a Y! 5x5 12-team H2H league. Scoring: Batters: R, RBI, HR, SB, BA; Pitchers: ERA, WHIP, W, SV, K

Should I trade Mike Trout for Tommy Hanson?

I have a pretty good lineup at OF, but not too great at SP

My team is as follows:

C: Mauer
1B: Freeman
2B: Pedroia
3B: Sandoval
OF: Granderson
OF: Pence
OF: Bourn
Util: Rios
Util: Werth

BN: Trout, Cozart, I. Davis, Weeks

SP: Lester, I. Kennedy, D. Hudson (DL), T. Lilly, J. Hammel, J. Garcia
RP: J. Guerra, J. Walden, J. Hanrahan, J. Johnson

In a non keeper league I absolutely pull the trigger ont his deal. Especially if you need the pitching help and dont need the OF help. Its a no brainer for me.

To me, in H2H leagues, offense weighs more heavily than pitching. You can plug and play on pitching if you need to and still win each week. A player like Trout has the ability to produce immediately in the majors IMO. Personally I'm not convinced on making the move, but I don't think it would hurt your team if you did. I agree that in a non-keeper your risk on "missing out on Trout" is lower.
