Time to Drop Beckett/Strasburg for Greinke

Postby nickels2012 » Wed Aug 01, 2012 1:34 pm

With Tommy Hanson on the DL for me Marcum on the wire until he gets back (was on my team all year) is it time to finally cut bait on Beckett? I also lost Roy Oswalt to the bullpen.

My SPs are

Greinke
Latos
Lynn
Scherzer
Wandy Rodriguez
Paul Maholm (just added)

Tommy Hanson on the DL


I was also just offered Strasburg and Youkilis for Greinke do I take that deal or no? I am thinking no but I would love to have Strasburg with Greinke. What would a good counter be?

You're not going to pair Greinke with Strasburg by trading pitching only. Greinke is the only pitcher you have that will get you Strasburg in return. If you want to pair Greinke with Strasburg, you'll have to put together a trade package that involves a good bat. I don't know what your league settings are, but 9 times out of 10, IMO, bats >>> pitching.
