Viciedo and pick for Sabathia? WHIR ALWAYS

Postby ATLbraves » Thu Aug 02, 2012 10:35 pm

Should I trade my Dayan Viciedo and a draft pick for CC Sabathia? I will prob have to give a pick in the 9th-12th round range. What do you think would be a fair pick to include?

Viciedo can be kept in the 18th round next year, so he has good keeper status in our league. Sabathia would not be a good keeper since he was drafted so high. I just feel like I need to shore up my pitching staff for the playoffs since I have been hit by some injuries, and Sale is going to be shutdown at some point.

I think I'd go for it. Sabathia always seems to pitch his best in August and September, save for last season. In the 18th round, Viciedo would definitely be a good bargain, but I don't really think you'd be giving up a future star. As long as you've got a legitimate shot to win this season with this deal, I'd do it.

I agree as well...I think you do it for a few reasons...one, he pitches for the yankees and they are going to be playing the entire reg season for the best possible record, two, he does pitch really well each year toward the end and three, he does solidify your staff and losing Viciedo does hurt for next year, you still have to do what you can to win this season...As for a pick...I would pony up the 11th pick...

help me?

Txs for the reply....

I look at t like this....what place are you in for this year? Do you have a shot at the playoffs/etc...? If so then I would say do this as this trade would be more beneficial for this year....if not then I would probably stay put as you can always find a diamond in the rough type pitchers for next year along the way (granted CC is pretty elite but there are star SP's born everyday)

If you do have a shot this year then I would say do it and like the other poster said I would deal the 11th round pick (Truthfully I would deal a round 12 pick but you said you wanted a fair deal so I would say 11th....could say 10th but 10th spot is a good spot in drafts for some weird reason...lol)

Good Luck m8!

I would do it. I think it should solidify a title run for you.

Without a doubt:

1. Viciedo is streaky
2. You can weather the loss of a pick that deep into the draft
3. CC tends to come up big down the stretch
4. Sale may be limited down the stretch, and Hanson is currently on the DL, and Gallardo is awful against the Cards, whom he may face in Sep when teams play more within their division... plus the central has some hot teams ... Darvish got knocked around by the Angels recently, so that's another team he could face when it counts..... i.e. CC can help provide stability.

Yea this is a slam dunk for me, Viciedo was a cute story at the beginning of the season but the outfielders around him have outproduced him. Would I rather have a perennial Cy Young candidate on my team or the 3rd best OF on the White Sox and a mid to late round pick...Easy

I'd do this deal. As one poster above said, Sale might hit an IP limit, and if he does you'd be needing an arm, and Sabathia is a great arm to go to. Viciedo is streaky, and while giving the pick might seem like a bit of a bummer, to get a top arm like CC it's worth it.

Help with mine?

I definitely agree, especially in light of the issues with Sale as another poster mentioned.
