Lawrie for Matt Cain?? WHIR

Postby mrbohjangles » Wed May 02, 2012 10:15 am

With Longoria out for a couple months this guy thinks its a good idea to try to take advantage of me. Do I fall for it or should I be smarter than that?

10 team h2h Yahoo! 5x5:

C Brian McCann
1B Joey Votto
2B Jose Altuve
3B Mike Moustakas
SS Asdrubal Cabrera
OF Hunter Pence
OF Michael Bourn
OF Cespedes
Util Chris Davis
BN Zack Cozart
BN Omar Infante
BN Shin Soo-Choo
DL Evan Longoria
DL Ryan Howard

SP Brandon Beachy
SP Edwin Jackson
SP Chad Billingsley
SP Kyle Lohse
SP Matt Cain
SP Ross Detwiler
SP Josh Johnson
RP Sean Marshall
RP Hector Santiago
RP Francisco Cordero
DL Cliff Lee

Do I accept the offer? Counter with a different pitcher? Stay put? He also has Hanley Tankers and Michael Young eligible at 3B as well. Counter with Cain for Hanley?

Any and all opinions are welcome and as always, leave a link and I will throw my thoughts at you as well.

Thanks

No, reject that one.

Most I'd offer him is lowball SooChooBooboo for Lawrie. Otherwise, you have Moustakas and Chris Davis to use at 3B while Longoria is out.

Cain for Lawrie seems quite fair actually, but I think you dont need to lose the arm with Moose as your temporary 3B.

Agreed. I think Lawrie for Cain is a good deal but Moustakas should be a fine replacement as well. Not sure I would worry about it. If you didn't have anything at 3B, then I would probably make that deal.
