Cueto for P. Alvarez in a dynasty?

Postby jnormy » Mon Aug 06, 2012 1:07 pm

20-team H2H dynasty league uses standard categories plus OPS and Holds, set lineups daily, playing on Yahoo. I inherited a team that needed a complete overhaul so I'm stockpiling youth and prospects. We have no minor league teams, so we stash prospects as roster spots.

I inquired to another owner about Pedro Alvarez (I do like his power upside) and he made the following offer to me: Alvarez/Masterson/C. Lewis for Cueto/Samardjida/Chipper. Cueto is probably my best pitcher, but I'm about to pick up Straily with the #1 waiver (prob. drop Leake) to strengthen my SP depth. Thoughts of Goldy and Pedro as power anchors of my infield for the next decade dance in my head. Despite his recent struggles, Masterson has some pedigree, plus I can DL Lewis and pick up a needed RP. But am I paying too much with Cueto and Shark? Opinions please, thanks!

Here's my roster (punting saves for now):

C D. Norris
1B Goldschmidt
2B J. Weeks
SS A. Escobar
3B Seager
LF Soriano
CF Fowler
RF Revere
UT Joyce
BN Doumit
BN C. Jones
BN Profar (NA)
BN Starling (NA)
BN Arenado (NA)
DL Reimold

SP Cueto
SP Cahill
SP Leake
RP O'Flaherty
RP Crain
RP Detwiler
P Samardzija
P Minor
P M. Perez (NA)
BN Taillon (NA)
DL A. Bailey

I don't think that your pitching could handle the loss of Cueto. I would pass.

I agree, and Cueto should of more value then Pedro, atleast for a couple more seasons.....however I still have faith in El-Toro to deliver.

Yeah I dont like this deal, you are severely under-selling Cueto imo.
