Thoughts on James Shields..OF FOR SP trade

Postby bluejaysfan25 » Mon Jun 24, 2013 10:36 am

i was offered his Shields for my Trumbo...i need to trade an outfielder as i have Cruz, McCutchen, Trumbo, Trout, Adam Jones, Dom Brown and Harper and Kemp on bench/DL. im using 2 OF's for my UTIL spot as well. i dont think this is the trade i want to pull off would Brown be better for Shields? Shields doesnt have great numbers but he does have a few pitchers id be interested in like Scherzer, Lynn, Corbin maybe Ryu or Josh Johnson??? let me know, thanks guys

Trumbo might have 1b and 3b eligibility. Trading another OF for Shields is fair. I mean that deal is not that bad honestly. Brown and Kkemp for Scherzer and Shields? Scherzer becomes a lockdown ace and Shields a quality #2 if you need pitching that bad.

ya trumbo does have 1B and 3B options so he is a good keep. i have Puljos at 1B and Wright at 3B so its not a big loss. my SP are King Felix, Verlander, Gio, Darvish and Bucholz and then use 2 other spots for spot starts here and there but thats my main core. i just have Kemp and Harper hopefully comming back soon so i need to open some spots in the OF. i can offer that trade and see where it gets me

It doesn't really sound like you need starting pitching very badly with King Felix, Verlander, Darvish, and Gio anchoring your rotation. Obviously Shields won't hurt your team and the trade is fair but if you have any other needs, I would try and address them.

Help on mine? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=462612

If there's any position that needs upgrading it would be 2nd base, maybe you can package Trumbo and Kipnis for an upgrade there.

I'd rather have Shields. Regardless, you could use an upgrade at C or 2B, your pitching is solid.
