Getting hammered in my league..need to make a big trade

Postby Yabbydoo » Sun May 05, 2013 10:17 pm

Hey guys Im in a 12 team league for my 2nd year and my sp is getting absolutely hammered...there pitchers who I consider having an offbeat 1 or 2 start but no its every start...its come to the point where I feel I need to trade stephen strasburg....should I trade him or still hold on to him? his recent starts have been killing me and if I were to trade him I would want to do it for when he still has value....My sps are james shields (decent), brandon mccarthy *(getting smacked) , Ian kennedy (getting smacked), shelby miller (decent), justin masterson (on/off), marco estrada (homeruns are killing me -__- category for pitching in my league), dan straily (getting dropped for someone and probably dropped again for when brett anderson comes back from dl) brett anderson (smacked), jonathan pettibone (like him def not starting against giants hitting though), julio teheran (on and off) ,.....my pitching categories are ip, h, er, hr, bb, k, qs, cg, w, sv, baa, era, whip, k/9....my questions are...

1.) should I hold on to strasburg or trade him now?
2.) what is his value? (I want at least two decent starters for him)
3.) is anyone on this list of sps even have trade value?
4.) any suggestions for trade candidates?

Thank you for taking time to read =D

1. I would hold on to Strasburg as a Dickey and Halladay owner I would gladly take your Strasburg woes over what I am dealing with.
2. I just saw someone on this forum trade Strasburg for Sale. (However the numbers have the two guys about equal for the year)
3. Unfortunately most of your SP's are on the ww in my 10 team league. I think you might be able to get something for Shields or Masterson. Maybe you could package Shields and a hitter for a SP upgrade?
4. I think you could target a Burnett, Minor, or Peavy level guy.
