Please help me out guys.

Postby ECG77 » Tue May 29, 2012 11:41 pm

I'm looking to make a big move and I'm using Cliff Lee and Brett Myers for top hitter and mid to low level pitcher. I am targeting teams that need pitching help badly.

My question is what is Lee's value now? He is a stud pitcher but who can I target using him?

Here is a list of guys i'm looking at. These are players on teams that need to pitching help ASAP.
Ryan Braun
Michael Cuddyer
Corey Hart
David Wright
Drew Stubbs
Rafael Furcal
Ian Desmond
Chris Young
Shane Victorino
Jose Reyes


So far Braun, Reyes and Victorino are no go.

Come one guys. Advice would help. THANKS! ;-D

well one draw back with pitchers is that they only play every 5 days. Cliff lee is good but he can't win a game by him self and Philly is really hurting right now in scoring runs. and Myers is still in the minors not going to be called up still for a while and no knows what type of ML player he is going to be.

Players I would go for are

Michael Cuddyer
David Wright
Drew Stubbs
Ian Desmond
Chris Young

I would try and get a solid hitter and possible a one stat category guy

Brett Myers is the closer of the Astros. He's not in the minors. So you are mistaking him for someone else.

I go for a mix and match with any 2 out of the 3
Michael Cuddyer
David Wright
Drew Stubbs

Toss in Ike Davis and go for all three. Go big or Go home, Namean?

Then for the second team it really depends on how much you think of Chris Young if he is going to bounce back or not.

Not sure if this helps

The guy with Shane Victorino has had second thoughts. He has Halladay and is now desprate. He has offered me

Shane Victorino, J.A. Happ and 8 FA dollars
for
Cliff Lee, Brett Myers, and Garrett Jones

Dont love that trade, looks like a cuddyer and stubbs combo would help you the most.

Stubbs shouldnt be pulling to high value and cuddyer be great help at first. For Lee and really a throw in. Also i remember you said you might want pitcher back and looking at your staff you should because without lee its average. You now have essentially the top pitcher in nl. Hamels, kershaw few others but you have a top 5. Treat him like one.

Another combo would be zimmerman and lee for wright cuddyer ...something like this
