Lawrie/Detwiler for Marcum/Shark **Help Appreciated**

Postby Bub381 » Wed May 02, 2012 10:35 pm

Ill try to offer anyone else advice...

12 man H2H Points- Somehow I feel my team is slightly better than when it was 10 man H2H last year. Anyway----

I was offered a trade:

I get GET 3B Lawrie and SP Detwiler and GIVE UP SP Marcum and RP/SP Samardzija:

I could use 3B, but my RP's are questionable and I liked Samardzija as a fall back option with the dual eligibility until I get this closer situation figured out. I fear trading Marcum could limit my Matchup options.

My Roster:

C Buster Posey, SF C
1B Mark Trumbo, LAA 1B
2B Dustin Pedroia, Bos 2B
3B Daniel Murphy, NYM 2B, 1B, 3B
SS Asdrubal Cabrera, Cle SS
OF Matt Kemp, LAD OF
OF Josh Hamilton, Tex OF DTD
OF Jason Heyward, Atl OF DTD
UTIL Howard Kendrick, LAA 2B, OF
BE Yoenis Cespedes, Oak OF

DL Ryan Howard*, Phi 1B DL15

SP Felix Hernandez, Sea SP
SP David Price, TB SP
SP Madison Bumgarner, SF SP
SP Jeremy Hellickson, TB SP
SP Clay Buchholz, Bos SP
RP Jeff Samardzija, ChC RP, SP
RP Chris Perez, Cle RP
BE Shaun Marcum, Mil SP
BE Chad Billingsley, LAD SP
BE Matt Harrison, Tex SP
BE Scott Downs, LAA RP
BE Matt Capps, Min RP

You're right, matchup options would be more limited. However, I think Lawrie will be worth your while as an upgrade over Murphy. He's a better piece than a pitcher who ranks as your #4 or #5 option. At least you've got depth, so I think this would be a good trade for you. I wouldn't get to caught up over Samardzija ... just keep an eye out for impending SP/RP types if you think you'll really miss him.
