Take One of these Deals for Lee or Cain? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Tue Jun 05, 2012 11:12 am

I am trying to get my SP back in shape. Do any of these scenarios make sense?

Scenario A: I have been offered Cliff Lee and Chase Utley for my Roy Halladay and Ricky Romero. Given Halladay's shoulder and Romero's mediocre performance and awful control, this deal actually has the potential to help my staff. But am I looking at it the wrong way? Are you guys as worried about Halladay as I am?

Scenario B: Deal Hunter Pence and Romero for Matt Cain and Mike Moustakas. I'm not 100% sure he'd give me Mous but he didn't flinch too much, so getting Mous or someone similar seems possible.

Scenario C: Deal Romero and Dunn for Matt Cain and some second player.


Which direction makes the most sense?

Pass on A (too much)

You have the best 3b in the league Miggy Cab so no need for Moose (pass on B though value wise it isn't that bad)

When Bonifacio goes back from DL you'll have speed. Is there anyone you can snag for some temp cheap speed?

I would just drop Smoak for streaming 2 SP and your fine.

DO NOT PANIC WHILE YOUR GUYS ON DL.

What about Halladay? Are you bullish on him returning and being effective?
Alternately, I am very keen on Cain. Would it be worth my while to deal Pence for Cain+?

I am in the same position as you, but with Weaver, I'd honestly stay put for a second, wait it out and see what is going on. Stream some pitchers, If more comes out and you become more worried about halladay then yes, go for Cain, But I find that unnecessary..

What about this offer I just received?

He gives me Gallardo, Pettitte and Yonder Alonso
I give him R.Romero, Viciedo and Beckham

That last one I would do, Gallardo is starting to pick it up, under 3 era for most of May.
