Give Dickey for King Felix and Melky? WHIR

Postby lyons595 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 3:51 pm

I am DOMINATING my h2h league right now (81-26-1) so making this trade is not to fix a current issue, but rather to maintain my lead and be a better team come playoff time. I have been quite happy with RA Dickey all year for obvious reasons, but I do kinda feel he is out-pitching his talent to some degree. Hernandez has not been good this year, and may be regressing overall like Linecum, but he's still King Felix. However, I feel like this would be a classic buy-low/ sell-high trade. Getting Melky back would help since Morse has not been great since he came off the DL.

Thoughts?

Give: RA Dickey
Get: Felix Hernandez, Melky Cabrera

ESPN, h2h each, 12 team, 4 RP max, daily roster changes. Cats: standard 5x5 plus OPS, QS. Non-keeper. I love to stream, but have too many SP I can't afford to drop.

I'd easily do that. Melky is having a great year, and who knows if Felix will get back to his level he is capable of...and even if he does Dickey I think will finish with very comparable #'s.

Uh yes, take the deal. I don't even know why you'd have to think twice about that one. Dickey WILL NOT keep be able to keep up this level of performance, no way no how. Knuckleballers are hot and cold, just look at Wakefield's career...Dickey is just on a nice long hot streak that's all. King Felix is by far the better pitcher, it's not even close. And you get Melky? c'mon this trade isn't even fair...Cabrera has had some injury issues lately, but nothing to be overly concerned about. Somebody should call the police because this trade is straight up robbery! lol I would have even taken Felix for Dickey straight up
