Marcum for KRod?

Postby Singles » Mon May 09, 2011 3:42 pm

This owner offered me Morrow for KRod and I declined. Now he came back with this and I am pretty sure its a go. Just wanted some opinions.

I get Shaun Marcum
I give Francisco Rodriquez

Pitchers Stat Categories:

Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Strikeouts per Walk Ratio (K/BB), Quality Starts

My team:
C. M. Montero
1B. J. Votto
2B. K. Johnson
3B. D. Wright
SS. A. Ramirez
IF. Adrian. Gonzalez
OF. J. Upton
OF. J. Bruce
OF. J. Ellsbury

I would definitely do this. Marcum is having a good year and closers are not nearly as valuable.

I would also do this, a steal trade. You have depth at the relief pitcher position and marcum is a solid starting pitcher to add to your squad now. Mets might not get that many save opportunities either and last year K-rod had several problems towards the end of the year so I wouldn't pass up on this.

Agreed, your other 3 RPs will chip in and you can target a replacement RP later. Marcum seems pretty reliable.
