Votto 4 Verlander?

Postby elraider77 » Tue Jun 26, 2012 1:53 pm

My league rewards Wins 10 (pts), IPs (1.5), K (1) -- for batters HR (4), RBI (1.5), Hit (1), double (2) and triple (3). Given my current lineup should i swap Votto to obtain a "true ace" to compliment my stable of pitchers? Or should I stay put and roll with votto and the roulette of pitchers on my roster?

what to do?
AJ Pierz (C)
Votto (1B)
Uggla (2B)
J Lowrie (SS)
Seager (3B)
Braun (OF)
McCutchen (OF)
Craig (OF)
Rasmus (Uti)
A Jax (Bench)

SP: Gio, Gallardo, Peavy, WMiley, A Sanchez, Zimmerman, Latos, Lincecum, T Hudson, & Halladay
RP: Hanrahan & Willhelmsen

If I were you I would sit tight right now, I think that you have enough pitching in your rotation there that you should be able to keep it up without having to give away Votto.

Votto is a beast. No way I move him for anything less than Verlander + another very good piece .... which the other owner undoubtedly would not agree to. Your pitching is ok right now. Keep plugging away. If I were wanting to trade offense for a starter though I would look to sell high on hot starts from AJax or Rasmus.
