Trade Stroman?

Postby Knights » Sun Apr 24, 2016 9:03 pm

We’re now 3 weeks into the season, and it’s become clear that my pitching is pretty solid but my offence is lacking power.

There’s a team that has both Nolan Arenado and Kris Bryant, so one at 3B and one in his UTIL spot. I’m debating offering a package based around Anthony Rendon and Marcus Stroman to try to acquire one of them. But if I tart to discuss this, do I have enough SP depth to move a pitcher for a power bat, or would doing so just make my SP a weak spot instead?

Here’s my roster (16-team 6x6 H2H league, keep 6 each year)
C Jonathon Lucroy (C)
1B Chris Davis (1B, RF)
2B Matt Carpenter (2B, 3B)
3B Anthony Rendon (2B, 3B)
SS Elvis Andrus (SS)
LF Hanley Ramirez (LF, 1B)
CF Brett Gardner (CF, LF)
RF Yasiel Puig (RF)
UTIL Michael Conforto (LF)
BN Javier Baez (2B, 3B, SS)
BN Denard Span (CF)
BN Alex Gordon (LF)
DL Johnny Peralta (SS)
NA Orlando Arcia (SS)

SP Madison Bumgarner
SP Jake Arieta
SP Marcus Stroman
SP Carlos Martinez
RP Zack Britton
RP Huston Street
P Jenmar Gomez
BN Drew Smyly
BN Luis Severino
BN Dellin Betances

Stroman and\or Rendon are not going to be enough to get either elite 3b imo. Stroman is good but hardly established and Rendon stinks right now so why would anyone trade you an elite 3b in Arenado or Bryant for them?

Just to clarify, when I said "based around" Stroman and Rendon, I know that other players and/or picks would be required at this point. My question was more should I even be considering trading Stroman, or would losing him make my SP much too thin (and likely harder to make up than finding some offence on the WW?)?

Package or not, do not see it appealing to anyone unless you include an elite player and it was Rendon\Stroman that was the throw in. It is too early in the season for teams to be bagging it for next season loooking for picks or something like that imo.
