Help with my trade?!? WHIR!!!! *** ** *

Postby TheGhost » Tue Aug 02, 2011 10:57 am

So I think I need more pitching for the stretch run. Another owner dropped Dan Uggla after his horrible start and I scooped him up. Now he's mashing. So now I have Kinsler and Uggla and would like to deal one of them for some pitching. The owner I'm targeting for the trade just lost Rickie Weeks so he might be in the mood to deal. I play in a standard 5x5 keeper league. 10 teams. FYI: I probably wouldn't be keeping any of these players in the potential deal. Here's the deal I'm thinking of...

My: Ian Kinsler and Ricky Nolasco
His: Shaun Marcum and Andrew Bailey

I know giving up KInsler is a lot but my opponent won't be in the playoffs and I'm not keeping KInsler. Also, should I try dealing one of these pitchers instead of Nolasco? Should I deal Uggla instead of Kinsler?

I also have: Daniel Hudson, Matt Garza, and Trevor Cahill. I want to trade the worst one obviously. Thanks!!!! Thoughts? WHIR!!!

Even with some rough starts by Garza and Cahill recently, I still think Nolasco is the right person to trade if you're looking to deal the "worst" pitcher of the group.

I think grabbing Marcum and Bailey does a nice job of solidifying your pitching staff, and you're giving up a SP that you don't want, and a 2B that you don't need. I think keeping Uggla and trading Kinsler is the right move to make.
