Trade Help

Postby Coolest1 » Thu May 26, 2011 1:59 am

I'm winning saves, but could use some help in most hitting categories. A guy is offering a catcher for a RP. What deal do you think I should make:

His Catchers (we start 2):
Matt Weiters
Jonathan Lucroy
Geovany Soto (coming off DL)

My Relief Pitchers:
Heath Bell
Mariano Rivera
Joakim Soria
Kyle Farnsworth
Sergio Santos
Jose Contreras (coming off DL)

I'm leaning toward Soria for Weiters as I have trouble believing Lucroy will keep up his pace and I know the other owner likes Soria, but don't want to let my bias overrule good judgement.

Pitching: W SV K ERA WHIP K/9 QS

My pitching has been pretty miserable overall. I'm winning W and SV and I'm in about last in all other categories, so a pitching overhaul could be in the works anyway. Both are teams are in the bottom half, so something that improves us both is good by me. I plan to drop Hank Conger after the deal to pick up a SP that may help my team.

Weiters for Soria makes sense.

If you could get him to take Contreras for Weiters that'd be even better, but not sure he'd do that. Still, Soria's velocity has been down, so the moment he starts to falter there might be some speculation surrounding him and Aaron Crow anyway.
