Alright so the trade deadline in my leage is in less than 10 days, and I'm looking to make some moves to solidify my chances in the playoffs. I am in 1st place, but I'm not 100% confident in my team going forward. Here's what I was thinking:
Ellsbury for Burnett. Now I know some of you might think this is crazy to do, but I'm looking at production from about mid september-early october, the last couple of weeks of the playoffs. The pirates have a pretty easy schedule, playing the cubs, brewers, astros, mets, and then the reds, which is the only tough team. Burnett has been great this year and he's been great in the past. Ellsbury has been disappointing and idk if he's going to return to form
Betancourt for Morrow. I have 6 (5 and a half if you're not counting bell, but I think he'll have the job come end of the season.
And should I just drop michael young? they're saying now that he's going to be on the bench.
