Jake Peavy for Chris B. Young WHIR

Postby GaborikNYR » Mon Jun 11, 2012 4:27 pm

12 Team 5x5 Roto 1250IP Limit Keeper league

Based on value alone, should I trade away Jake Peavy for Chris B. Young? I can see Peavy slowing down for sure, but Chris Young has done absolutely nothing since coming off the DL, so I'm not sure what to do here.

I appreciate any help you guys can provide.

Tough call man, becauseI agree with both of your statements. Its hard to say without knowing what the rest of your roster looks like, but with t0he info you've given I'll give you the best advice that I can. Peavy is DEFINITELY returning to earth soon, and that process has already started given his increased BB rate...the Peavy of old (and by old I mean bad, lol) will be rejoining us very shortly. The scorching hot/humid days of July and August will soon be a arriving in the Chicago area and that always turns Cellular Field into a homerun paradise. That being said I see Peavy finishing the year with a stat line of:
10-6, 4.50 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, with 35 BBs, and 116-120 K's. Young is gonna probably end up hitting between .240-.250, with 20+ doubles, 20+ HRs, around 70-75 RBIs, and around 20 SBs. He's also goin to end up costing you about 140 Ks, he's already struck out 21 times in only 99 ABs. So based on that information make the decision thats best for your squad. If those numbers from Young are going to give you a boost or improvement somewhere offensively, and you have a decent SP staff, then I'd make the the trade because you've already seen the best of Peavy's 2012 season. Good luck

I would stand pat with Peavy. The injury/slow down risk is there, but the reward if he actually puts together a relatively complete season is very high. If you are going to trade him, you should be able to get someone who is actually performing, as well.
