Trade involing Pedroia/Puig & Butler/Lince/Bundy...WHIR

Postby SLBarnes » Mon Mar 25, 2013 10:47 pm

Below is my lowly team. 12 team standard yahoo 5x5 scoring, keep 5.
I was offered their:

Billy Butler, Tim Lincecum and Dylan Bundy

for my

Dustin Pedroia and Yasiel Puig

Now i am looking to ship Pedroia as I have Kipnis, and Butler is a nice 1B i'm missing (howard and moss aren't gonna cut it I don't think). But I am happy with my pitching and feel I need to focus on offense... so i'm thinking i'm going to reject.. thoughtS?

Thanks, and as always, I WHIR!

I like your team, real solid. 1st off, more pitching is always a good thing. Makes it easier to win K's & W's. 2nd I'd hold off trading Pedroia for what u got offered. I'd personally go after Trumbo or Todd Frazier, even Carpenter. They all have 1st/3rd/OF eligibility. I'm sure you know and they're all good. Especially Trumbo hitting behind Pujols & Hamilton. I think Frazier will have a good year this year playing 3rd for the Reds' dangereous lineup. Plus you might be able to get something a little extra, which brings me to 3. You have no closers? I know Jansen is a K beast, I have him too but he is the setup man (for now) but Marshal can be dropped, especially now that Broxton should be the main setup man for Chapman. (does your league count saves + holds?) Good luck

Thanks for the reply!

Yea I am punting saves...they went to early for my liking and our league doesn't count holds. I got Jansen and Marshall for good ERA and K's, i'm hoping my starters will take all the other categories.

Yea I do like Billy Butler but I feel i may be able to get better with one of the top 3 second basemen. And I am happy with my pitching so mauybe i'll look elsewhere thanks!

And I just replied to yours, thanks again!
