How to counter Napoli/Cain for Posey/Sabathia offer?

Postby taw856 » Tue May 21, 2013 2:28 pm

Stuck in the middle of the pack in an 11-team 7x6 roto league that uses fielding percentage, OPS and quality starts in addition to the normal 5x5. My team is getting killed in ERA and WHIP and I've been trying to flip Buster Posey for pitching, but a combination of dead teams in the league and the live teams having similar pitching need has made it tough.

Consequently, I've been sent a lowball Napoli/Cain for Posey/Sabathia offer -- and while I don't like it, I'm not sure how much better I can do for Posey in this league.

Any thoughts on how to counter?

hmm, tough call as his pitching is suspect except darvish, who he would probably not get rid of. since he has cruz sitting on his bench, and you have a lot of speed, maybe include cruz from him and you include mcclouth?

Offered the Cruz-McLouth counter and they responded with Napoli/Cain/Cabrera for Posey/Sabathia/Bourn.

Any hope here or is the price too high for Cain?

I'd rather have Posey/CC/Bourn myself.
