Pineda for Shields (WHIR)

Postby BUCCOFAN » Thu Aug 11, 2011 10:43 pm

I am in a deep Yahoo league, (10 player keeper) Head to Head League. Currently in 4th place....trying to make a push. Should I make this deal thinking that Pineda doesn't pitch much down the stretch?

SP - J.Shields (TB)
26th rd pick


SP - M.Pineda (SEA)
18th rd pick

MY ROSTER: (guys in bold are my tentative 10 keepers)
C - C.Santana
1B - F.Freeman

2B - N.Walker
SS - S.Castro
3B - A.Rodriguez (currently on DL coming back)
CI - M.Morse
MI - J.Lowrie
LF - C.Crawford
CF - A.Jones
RF - C.Quentin
OF - B.Boesch
OF - D.Jennings
UT - B.Butler

BN - P.Goldschmidt
BN - Y.Alonso
BN - T.Robinson

SP - J.Verlander
SP - C.Kershaw
SP - S.Marcum
RP - H.Street
RP - J.Isringhausen
RP - J.Guerra
P - J.Chacin
P - M.Pineda
P - R.Nolasco

BN - P.Hughes
BN - D.Bard

I like Marcum, but I think Shields would obviously replace him as my keeper if I made this deal, or should I stand pat and just keep Pineda, since his upside is so good.

Pineda is obviously the best keeper, but Shields wouldn't be a bad one either. So if you are trying to win this year I think this is a smart move. Pineda will likely be shut down so he won't be of much help in the playoffs, and he has also been roughed up a lot lately.

help with mine please:

Pineda is the better keeper. Why are you losing with the draft pick?
FWIW, no way i keep Marcum. I keep Morse for sure, maybe Quentin too.
