So I need pitching for offense. This is the offer:
Hiroki Kuroda OR Brett Anderson
He also offered me Kevin Youkilis, but I have no interest in Youk as I have Jose Bautista coming off the DL to play 3b soon.
8 team AL only.
ci Billy Butler
2b Howie Kendrick
ss Asdrubal Cabrera
of Nelson Cruz
of BJ Upton
ut Lorenzo Cain
I am winning (by a decent margin but have not locked up) Avg., OBP, SLG, Runs, RBI.
I need help in SB (I just made a few acquisitions to fix this). We do not have HR as a category.
In pitching, I could pick up points in ERA (2 points, but a long way to go), Win Pct. (2 points), Strikeouts (3 points), WHIP (1 or 2 points, but a long way to go), Wins (1 point, 2 points is an outside shot, but the 1 point will be gotten even without this trade). I am now 4 points off the lead.
Does this trade help me or is it way too much to give up? If I look for another player back, I should try to get a 2b, does everyone agree? What level of 2b should I expect?
