McCutchen for Kerhsaw WHIR

Postby brianrapp » Tue May 22, 2012 5:01 am

I've been offered Kershaw for McCutchen in 12 team h2h league 10 basic categories and I know I can get him to give me Asdrubal for JJ Hardy as part of the trade if I want. and possibly Cueto for Dempster- slim chance on that though. This trade would obviously give me the best rotation but I'd be left with Boesch instead of Cutch.
my team:
C McCann
1B A-Gon
2B Jemile Weeks
SS Han-Ram
3B Lawrie
MI JJ Hardy
CI Freddie Freeman
OF-McCutchen
OF-Rios
OF-Stubbs
OF-Car-GO
OF-Trout
Util-Konerko
BN-Aramis Ramirez
BN-Boesch
DL-Crawford
SP-Verlander
SP-Gio
SP-Lester
SP-Josh Johnson
SP-Wainwright
SP-Jaime Garcia
SP-Dempster
SP-E.Santana
RP-Aroldis Chapman
RP-Fernando Rodney
RP-Santiago Casilla
RP-Rafael Soriano
DL-Chris Carpenter

Obviously your starting pitching is already very strong. I would do it because I think Kershaw is just that much better than Mccutch. If you need to after doing the trade you could look to trade verlander or kershaw for a bat surely better than Mccutch

The guy above said it best, do the trade, and if you need a bat bad, you can trade for a very nice guy who is better than Mcutch, but if you do not need a bat, then how much better is your pitching gonna be.

Hate to say it, but this is not a good trade for you. Naturally, the value is there, as Kershaw is clearly more valuable in a vacuum than McCutcheon, but to your team, McCutcheon carries far more value. Of course, you could grab Kershaw, then trade another pitcher for an elite bat, but that isn't always the easiest thing to do, as the market is clearly set a little low as the no. 1 pitcher (no 2 maybe?) is only getting McCutcheon, so trading away another pitcher would only really make this a lateral move value-wise, while weakening your offense, which was already weaker to begin with. If you really think about it, I am certain you know this is all true, which is why you put this trade on here in the first place, instead of just clicking accept.

There is no reason to do this trade...... Your already strong in pitching....... Why would you want to weaken something for something that you already are strong in?

Before looking at rosters I'd say this is a no brainer, but you need McCutchen pretty bad at OF so I'd sit tight

Help me?

Based on your roster, there's no reason for you to make this trade. How do you stand to gain from this trade? You already have great pitching, but its much easeier to win your league with solid offensive stats vs pitching. It's a lateral move, you suffer greatly from one to add marginal benefit to another. I would sit tight.

Help on mine please? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=447488

I have to agree here. There is no reason for you to make this trade. Your staff is pretty damn solid and all you would be doing is hurting your OF, not a smart move. If you had another deal lined up where you could deal one of your other pitchers for a big bat in the OF, then I would consider doing this, but until I knew I had something else coming in to replace McCutch, I'd sit tight on this one.

I agree with above. Move quickly and see about shopping Lester, Gio, or Dempster for another bat. If you can land Kershaw for McCutchen, then you can afford to package one or two of your other pitchers to replace McCuthen and possibly end up with an upgrade a SP and OF.
