Wouldn't that be nice?
So, I'm still looking for outfield hitting because my hitting statistics are awful. Although yesterday was a good day for me (14 RBI's...and no, I don't own Sean Green), my numbers still need some help. My outfield consists of Dye, Carlos Lee, and Eric Owens. Not exactly tearing it up. However, in exchange for my outfield shaft in the draft, I did manage to get a stellar pitching staff. Mussina, Colon, Buerhle, Beckett, Halladay<---I'm really high on this guy, and Reuter<---I think he's underrated.
So I offered a guy this trade:
I give Mussina and Carlos Lee
I get L. Walker and John Burkett
I thought there was a slim chance he would bite seeing as his WHIP and K's are awful. He didn't. Here's his counterproposal:
I give Mussina and Byung-yung
I get L.Walker and John Burkett
I don't think this trade works for me because I don't want to give up Kim. Instead, I was considering offering Percival instead of Kim. My question is how many saves usually work well for the team. If I gave up Percival, I'd have Benitez and Kim which would be approximately 80 saves, right? Does this add up in the end? I was wondering before I even offered someone a closer in a trade.
Also, am I underselling Mussina? Should I try just Mussina for Walker?
Also, what if to that trade I got one of his closers? (he wants to monopolize the saves category-he already has 4 closers)
His closers are Yan, Jimenez, Hoffman, and Alfonseca
Would something like this make more sense?
Give: Mussina and Kim
Get: Walker, Burkett, and one of the four aforementioned.
If so, which one would be wisest?
What do you think guys? I really need to make a move soon to get back in the mix...I'm really lagging behind.
