Loaded with bats - Trade for SP? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Sun Jul 22, 2012 3:18 am

I have assembled a strong hitting team. Any suggestions on who I might trade (or package with Hanson) for one more ace-like arm? I thought Hanson could be that guy but clearly not. I'd prefer to hold onto bonifacio for the speed. Suggestions on a pitcher to target?

Sheesh, you have also acquired a strong pitching staff as well. You could try to flip Hanson/Cain for someone on the same level as Hanson where you might think they'd have more upside, but at this point I don't see a strong need at SP.

If you really, really wanted another top SP just try a Beltre/Hanson or Gonzalez/Hanson deal for the upgrade in order to make room for Ortiz. Really, since you're so deep offensively, you could really throw anyone out there and not take a blow. You could conceivably ask a manager hey, who can I package with Hanson to get (top pitcher)? At least you will know you could get the pitcher at all.
