Trade Question

Postby Mateo de Lorenzo » Mon Mar 28, 2011 6:43 am

So, I was offered a trade in my standard 5x5 roto league. We have an IP requirement of a minimum of 1,000 IP per year and a max of 1,500.

My team could use a bat (Zimmerman is my top bat) and I seem to have extra pitching, which I will list:

Brett Anderson
Trevor Cahill
Ubaldo Jimenez
Matt Cain
Jamie Garcia
Ricky Nolasco
Anibal Sanchez
Travis Wood
Jeremy Hellickson (minor league slot)

Joe Nathan
Jonathan Papelbon
Joakim Soria

So, I was offered this trade: Matt Holliday for Ubaldo Jimenez.

Like I said, I need some pop and have what seems to be an excess in pitchers. I could drop one of the lower pitchers like Nolasco but there aren't any decent bats available. So, I guess the question becomes, is the offensive gains worth the pitching losses? And, will Jimenez be able to have another solid season or was last year a fluke?
Please help me with analyzing my team? viewtopic.php?f=29&t=433592

Ubaldo is your best pitcher, but you seem to have good depth of middle type SPs. Since you could use another big bat, I'd make the deal.

Straight up, I'd definitely take Holliday.
