Starling Marte for Zack Grienke

Postby GolbeZ » Mon Jul 08, 2013 8:26 pm

10 Team mixed H2H Each 5x5 Category.. 4 player Keeper

Have Wil Myers, Shane Victorino wilting on the bench to be a replacement, and my SPs is by far my worse position.. I initally offered Marte for Grienke and Cobb.. but he countered without Cobb.. (also offered Starling for

Grienke isn't have the best year so far and his last 2 outings were bad.. and Starling has been one of the best Bats this year (so far) .. Am I extremely over paying or is this legit for the rest of the year.. should I try for another pitcher (Both David Price and Chris Sale got rejected heads up for starling with no counter)

Any thoughts will help.. thanks

With the way Marte is playing, I would try and get a little bit more than Greinke.

Look to get more than Grienke. Focus on teams that are hurting in the speed department.

Though I am not sure I would want to rely on Victorino and Myers all year.

Thats what I did .. the last 4 teams in Steals.. 2 didnt even really consider it (no counter) and the other is this grienke offer

The team that is in actual last in steals (who I havn't sent any offers to yet)

has

Yu Darvish
CC Sabathia
Cole Hamels
Clay Buchols
Lance Lynn
Anibal Sanchez

I am sure Yu isn't on the block (he is a Rangers Fan to boot) .. what are some good offers here.

Maud is on the right track. If you could get Lynn (or Sanchaez) and Hamels for Marte and a throw in, you would be golden.

I am thinking about trading away an expensive Miggy to get a cheap CarGo in a keeper league. Can you help with advice on this one?

Thirded. Your deep OF makes it a little less painful to part with Marte. Sacrifice a position of strength to shore up an area of weakness.
