Is my logic crazy or sound?

Postby jed757 » Wed Jul 18, 2012 9:04 pm

13 team redraft league, 22 active on roster (plus 4 bench). Stats reset at All-star break. Waiver wire is bleak.

My top four hitters are Votto, Ortiz, McCutchen, and Trout. With Votto and Ortiz on DL, am I crazy to try and trade both McCutchen and Trout for significant reinforcements?

First half my team was tops in hitting and bottom in pitching. I've already traded Phillips for Capuano and Estrada, and Putz for Vogelsong. The best batter I could add was Ludwick.

I'm aiming for two good batters and a solid SP for each of McCutchen and Trout. My hope is to plug the gaps short-term, and to replace Carlos Pena and Stephen Drew long-term.

What's the rest of your roster look like? I think you'd have to demand and epic haul for each one to make it fly, but there could be merit to the idea depending on how many holes your roster has ...

What would you use to trade for the 2 hottest players over the past month (for Trout, it's been since May)? Your SP look a bit shaky.
