Toying with trading McCutchen for Verlander

Postby mayor quimby » Fri Jun 29, 2012 10:57 pm

What do you guys think of this idea?

My innards are telling me that Cutch is going to hit some serious regression for the second half. Thoughts on that?

And we all know what Verlander is going to do.

I think the owner of Verlander is interested in McCutchen.

My team is in my signature, it's a 12 team H2H and I'm in first place.

Thanks a lot guys.

I feel like your pitching is pretty good, although Verlander would be an upgrade. I don't expect McCutchen to have much of a fall of in the second half of the season, the guy is a beast, 4/5 today with 4 runs, 1HR, 3RBI, don't get me wrong I am probably a little biased, I am a Pirates fan but this McCutchen is MVP caliber. I think its a fair trade, I don't really see anything wrong with it, but in my opinion, I don't like giving someone up that has that much production everyday (McCutchen) for someone that gives you production 1 time every 5 days. You have a lot of pitchers already, and I believe most of them are giving you pretty good numbers. I feel its a lot harder to replace everyday players, unless you are just stacked in your outfield, I probably would not make this trade. But I also don't think its a bad trade if you do decide to do it.

Help me out

I love McCutchen. I also love JV. But he isn't having the kind of season I hoped he would have. If I had your team and I was made that offer I would accept without much thought. You do have good pitching. Losing JV is huge but as said above. Getting a guy like Cutch that plays everyday and is a top 10 player is a very nice return.

I'd stay put. McCutchen is carrying the Pirates towards a playoff run. For once the Pirates are looking to add talent, versus reducing talent and picking up prospects. I think that mentality will help McCutchen stay hot. Also, if you deal McCutchen, you're going to be relying on Craig, Jennings and Ellsbury staying healthy.

Its a fair deal, but I think I stay put especially since you're in first place. No need to mess around with whats working.
