Darvish for Giancarlo? WHIR

Postby lyons595 » Wed Apr 03, 2013 4:14 pm

I am big (succesful user and) beleiver in streaming SP. I pay close attention to matchups, check them daily, and have access to my league 24/7 so I can grab guys as they become available and can (99% of the time) get the guys I want. I TYPICALLY carry one stud SP to anchor my pitching and them stream around him. I easily won the league last year, and have finished no worse than 3rd for the last 5 years, so I seem to be able to make this work for me in this particular league.
I am flirting with trading Yu Darvish for Stanton. I'd like more OF pop and my team and the other owner's team match-up well (I have a SP to deal, they need one; they have very good OF depth and I need an OF).
Is this a good deal for me?

My squad:
ESPN, h2h each cat, 12 team, 4 RP max, daily roster changes. Cats: standard 5x5 plus OPS, QS. Non-keeper. I stream 2-5 SP weekly.

I would accept this in a heartbeat. The top 15 hitter is always worth more than a top 5 pitcher...unless it's like Dwight Gooden's rookie year or something.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
