Trade Altuve for One of These SP? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Tue Jul 24, 2012 6:57 pm

With Bonifacio soon to gain 2B eligibility, and Pedroia as my primary 2B, my need for Altuve is less compared with my need to have as strong SP as I can down the stretch.

Please rank the following SP for the Rest of the Season OR suggest which one or two I should target in a straight up deal for my Altuve.

HIS SP:

R.A. Dickey
Lance Lynn
James McDonald
Tommy Milone
Mark Buehrle
Anibal Sanchez
Ricky Romero
(DL: Brandon McCarthy, Neftali Feliz)


12 Team H2H DAILY LEAGUE with 6 Keepers Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means a keeper entering this season
Stat Categories: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

MY CURRENT TEAM


C Mike Napoli
1B Prince Fielder*
2B Dustin Pedroia
3B Miguel Cabrera*
SS Hanley Ramirez*
OF Ryan Braun*
OF Jacoby Ellsbury
OF Justin Upton
UT Adrian Gonzalez
UT Adrian Beltre
UT Emilio Bonifacio
BN Salvador Perez
BN Jose Altuve
BN Ben Revere
DL Giancarlo Stanton
DL David Ortiz

SP Clayton Kershaw

If you must do a 1 for 1 deal I'd try Anibal Sanchez.

I would explore doing a 2 for 1 deal such as Altuve/Hanson for Dickey.

Do you see Dickey keeping it up? Worry slightly about how he'd fair come September should we get some rainy days.

It's a good point about the rain in the fall, but when that comes about, the mets will simply throw someone else. I definitely think he's going to keep it up, certainly not at the clip he had the first half, but he's still going to be dominant.

No... the deal isn't bad but ONLY if you are planning on keeping Lynn. I heard he is on a total inning restriction this year?

I'd ask for these guys in this order:
Anibal Sanchez
R.A. Dickey
Tommy Milone
James McDonald
Lance Lynn
Mark Buehrle(old man river)
Ricky Romero(something is wrong here????)
(DL: Brandon McCarthy, Neftali Feliz)

If you have room on your DL(or can carry them as non-keepers into next year), then you might even consider McCarthy or Feliz before I'd consider Buehrle or Romero.

I just dropped Romero in my 16 team dynasty points league because no one would even give me a future draft pick for him and I was tired of his weekly negative points. He HAS to be injured or something like substance abuse going on with him???
