Keeper league AL only 6 team. I am in contention; need wins, strikeouts, ERA, WHIP.
Have been offered I trade Jose Bautista for Jeremy Hellickson or Ryan Dempster.
Is the deal worth it? Bautista is protectable at $24 for next year ($260 for 23 players)
My worst starting pitcher is probably Tommy Milone, but I will be starting everyone when they start (unless @nyy, v. tex, @ tex, etc.). I could also pick up JA Happ or Blake Beaven for the other slot. Happ however is @ nyy this start, then v. tb (ok), followed by @ bos, v. bos, @ nyy, @ bal, v. nyy (if all holds as current). Beaven also has bad starts after this week.
Additional info: Based on current schedules, the following are the matchups for Dempster the rest of the way (I know anything can change at any time), remembering his two bad starts with Texas were at home vs. LAA and @ Tex. His other three starts were quality:
@ cle,@ kc, v. cle, v. sea, @ sea, v. oak, @ oak. Looks like no LAA on that slate, and the only questionable home start is Seattle. Everything else looks like a tasty matchup. I think I have convinced myself to make this deal if there is a good shot Joey Bats is out for the year.
