Hmmm my Bourn/Cueto/Peavy for his CarGo/CWilson/Quintana

Postby garretterik » Fri Aug 10, 2012 1:11 pm

I just retook first place and the second place team made me an offer and then pulled it immediately. I am thinking it looks pretty good for me and am thinking of offering it back to him.
My Bourn/Cueto (he has been trying to get these two from me all year!)/ Peavy
for his
CarGo/CWilson/Quintana

The offensive boost here would be huge. And if WIlson returns to form I think I could even have the pitching edge in the deal!

I wouldn't do it. Your pitching staff would be taking a huge hit. CJ Wilson is a mediocore pitcher. He always drops off in the second half of the season. I would try to work out a deal where you give up Bourn and another pitcher for CarGo

Thanks for the help with mine. Wow, this is close and has alot of variables. I have not been a big believer in Cueto and I have waited all season for him to come back to earth but he has been really good all season. The same goes for Peavy. That being said, I really like CarGo, alot more than I like Bourn (although he is good). Is this a keeper league? Quintana had a great start but has really cooled off recently. The question is how good do you think Cueto and Peavy will be in the future? CarGo is the stud of this group, but I might try to substitute Quintana for someone else. I'm not as worried about your pitching because I think Wilson will get back on track eventually, plus I would DEFINITELY start Bumgartner right now instead of being on the bench. Sorry, I have kind of rambled on, bottom line..do the deal.

Thanks for the help with mine.. I'd do this trade too, your pitching is pretty solid, you take a big hit for sure but Wilson has to have some success with how dangerous the Angels lineup is for sure, plus you get a top 5 outfielder
