Pence vs Marcum, trade advice...WHIR

Postby AMKatUC10 » Wed May 25, 2011 8:40 pm

Ok guys, so I'm in a 12 team league where we have no bench, you play all your hitters and pitchers, absolutely no subbing (there is a designated space for DL). I'm currently in 2nd place in this roto league and have been making a few offers, seeking help in the AVG and RBI's department.

I was offered: Hunter Pence and Tim Hudson for Mark Trumbo and Shawn Marcum/Tommy Hanson.

I'm really thinking about doing it, however as you can see below, I have Ryan Zimmerman coming back (hopefully in the next few weeks) which could really give me a big boost in each category.

I tempted to offer Trumbo and Hudson for Pence straight up and see what he thinks. Again, I will help in return.....What do you guys think?

I think pence is a nice player and would help you tremendously, but I don't think you have the pitching depth to lose either Marcum or Hanson. I think I would hold off for now and ride it out until Zimmerman returns. Your team is nice and Dunn will start hitting HR's and Braun, Stubbs and Bautista make for a great OF. No surprise your in 2nd.

Thanks for your help.

Marcum is your best pitcher. Getting Pence won't help that much, considering your hitting depth. No brainer to me.

This trade isn't needed, your just going to lose a good pitcher from this trade. It is tempting but stick with Trumbo and Marcum
