What to get for Cain?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Tue Apr 23, 2013 8:08 pm

12 team, H2H, points league with pitching favored in the points system, 3 player keeper league

Been Offered HIS Julio Teheren, Jason Kipnis, and ONE of Ryu, Hammel, Wei-Yin Chen for Matt Cain? Take this or no?

I was thinking about countering with Shelby Miller and Kipnis for Cain. Any thoughts?

i like your counter offer a lot better than the original. i wouldnt take the original. you are giving up a top 10 pitcher and would be getting back replacement level. shelby miller has looked good so far and kipnis would be a speed upgrade at 2b for you if you need the steals.

ive watched every game of Millers he is a beast! if you believe Kipnis can turn it around it would be a great trade for you ;-D

Right now, you would probably get a bag of balls and a stick of gum for Cain. Biggest bust of the young season so far.

The guy said he would do Shelby Miller and Kipnis for Cain. Do it or hold off?

In another deal he offered me: HIS Andrew McCutchen, Shelby Miller, and Jason Kipnis for MY Mike Trout.

Is this enough for Trout and would you do it?

i would take that trade for trout in a heart beat. you get a 1st round pick back in McCutcheon. miller and kipnis are icing on the cake. I dont think Trout will match last years numbers. he's bound to regress.
