Trade Verlander?

Postby ryan2714 » Mon Jun 24, 2013 4:19 pm

10 team 5x5 8 keeper (1 rookie) $100

I'm starting to lean towards dishing Verlander in favor of keeping Scherzer. I think I could be better off keeping Scherzer and getting some other pieces to help me this year and next year.

My team is solid top to bottom pitching to hitting, but my only real soft spot would be Catcher where I had Vmart and dropped him and now only have Napoli playing there for me.

Was thinking about going after Posey and a mid-level pitcher and fairly high draft pick for 2014 for Napoli and Verlander. Thoughts?

I would agree with that, but I think Verlander is far better than he has been pitching. I don't see the Posey owner giving you Posey and a good pick for Verlander and Napoli. Posey for Verlander straight up is in the ball park.

Since pitching is so deep and C is so shallow, I would think Posey will be harder to grab than you think. In a 10 team league, everyone should have a jock lineup and who wins those leagues are the people that win the position scarcity battles.

Cano, Posey, Tulo are the best to have in that league.
