Alvarez for Minor?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Sun Jul 29, 2012 8:59 pm

NL only league, auctions type, 260 dollar cap, 7 keepers per year, 13 teams, 4x4 roto league(HR, Runs produced, SB, Avg, K's Wins, Saves, WHIP) Currently in 4th place only 1 point out of 3rd and 5 out of second and 7 out of third. Thus I have chance to win this year. Would trading my Mike Minor for his Pedro Alvarez help my team? I am currently at the top of most pitching cats except for saves but am moving up since trading some of my starters for saves guys and speed.

SO it would by my Mike Minor for his Pedro Alvarez.

My Team:

C-Barajas
C-Kotarras
1B-Giambi
2B-Descalso
3B-Wright
SS-Theriot
MI-Pastornicky
CI-C. Johnson
OF-CarGo
OF-Ankiel
OF-Bloomquist
OF-Maybin
OF-Pierre
U-Arias

P-Garza
P-S, Burnett
P-Jackson
P-Casilla
P-Papelbon
P-Lincoln
P-Oviedo
P-Minor
P-Rauch
INJ-Francisco

losing Minor might sting for a NL only league.

HOWEVER, make the deal, and go out and pick up, Kris Medlen (ATL) 2 starter this week, and might stick in rotation if Braves don't trade for a Starter.

PLEASE HELP OUT AGAIN: thnx

Minor really has started to pitch well, which is probably why this guy is trying to trade for him. Alvarez homers and does nothing else for you. I would certainly not make this trade.

I'd hold on to Minor. I used to be an Alvarez owner and he was too streaky for my liking. You already have Wright at 3rd so might as well try picking up streaky hitters on the WW instead of dealing a pretty good pitcher.

Completely agree. If you make this deal you will probably be regretting it in a couple of weeks.
