Who should I offer for Cueto? WHIR

Postby pcm4 » Tue Jul 17, 2012 10:35 am

I'm in a one year H2H league and I need another SP. Pickings are slim on the WW and there aren't many owners shopping their starters. There is one owner who is shopping both Cueto and Strasburg and wants a bat in exchange. I'm not a huge fan of acquiring Strasburg because the innings limit could be deadly come playoff time. Although the owner said he is looking for just a bat he seems to have the most need at OF and I have an extra OF. What would be a fair offer for Cueto? My offensive roster is below.

1B: Ortiz
2B: Altuve
SS: Lowrie (DL, but I've used all my moves for the week)
3B: Zimmerman
OF: Trout
OF: Bruce
OF: Bourn
Util: Ellsbury
BN: Harper
BN: Pedroia (DL)

Obviously Trout is off the table and I don't have any desire to move Bourn. I've been shopping Bruce, but I'm not sure if that's a good deal 1 for 1. The guy has trying to buy Ellsbury off me all year, but I'm still not sure if I should move him or not. I'd move Harper, but I'm not sure if he'd accept that straight up. Any thoughts on a good offer? All feedback is appreciated. Leave a link.

Man, that's tough ... I might try to package Altuve with one of your SP.

I would try Bruce, Harper, or Ellsburry. Why not? Like you said you have the OF depth. Try Harper first, then Ells, then Bruce.

Ellsbury and I don't even need to think about it.
He's been out all year with a shoulder injury...so the power more than likely won't be there...so now he's a speed guy for you, which you have already in Bourn, Trout, and Harper to a degree.
Add in time to shake the rust off and it is a no brainer IMO.

Mine please?

I think Ellsburry for Cueto is a fair swap. Or Bruce or Harper would be fine as well. I don't know what your SP situation is, but you could try for BOTH Cueto and Strasburg in the deal for Ellsbury if he really wants him, or even Trout at that point.
