McCann/Dickey for Sabathia?

Postby guyincognito » Wed May 22, 2013 12:32 am

Given that Tex might be coming back soon, thinking of making a move to improve my pitching and open up a roster spot. Would you do this trade?

Give - McCann and Dickey
Get - Sabathia

Or do you think I should try to shop one of my 1B? Sabathia owner needs a C which is why I was going hat route. Would I need to give a better arm than Dickey?

I move move McCann/Dickey for Sabathia, since you have Santana to catch and doing a 2:1 is usually nice. I think Dickey is good but not great, and Sabathia is reliable and awesome. Nice looking deal.

Sabathia always seems capable to throw 200+ and touch 200 ks or get close. I like Dickey, he's good. McCann is always dinged up. I say go!

Maybe toss Pence in and see if you can get some speed to your OF does he have a Bourn or something like that you could trade for?

I would absolutely do this deal. CC is a top 20 SP, Dickey has lost velocity on his knuckler, and the "hard" knuckler is his primary out pitch. McCann expendible with Santana on roster.

Please help with my question.
