Offered Jay Bruce and J. Zimmerman for McCutchen

Postby TheShelbySensation » Tue Jul 31, 2012 9:32 am

I really need a pitching upgrade, but I'm not sure this is worth it. Would I be better off keeping McCutchen or should I try and get a pitcher?

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

How about J. Zimmerman and Reyes? I lead the league in most batting categories, I know McCutchen is a huge hit, but my pitching has performed terribly.

I hate to disagree with Grey, him having the website and all, but I think McCutchen is slightly less valuable in H2H leagues than in roto leagues. I drafted him and we absolutely was great. However, I think he may have peaked for the year and will regress slightly .

I was looking for pitching too and traded McCutchen and Villanueva for Cain and Adam Jones. If you can get a trade where the difference between the hitter you get back and McCutchen is more than offset by replacing a terrible pitcher with Zimmerman (or someone else good), I think you make that trade.

I'm not sure how McCutchen is less valuable in H2H compared to Roto.... If you look at his past three months, he's been extremely consistently productive:

May - .360, 16 runs, 8 HR's, 18 RBI, 5 SB
June - .370, 19 runs, 7 HR's, 26 RBI, 4 SB
July - .437, 21 runs, 7 HR's, 15 RBI, 0 SB

Streaky hitters are less valuable in H2H IMO and Jay Bruce is the epitome of a streaky hitter. I know this better than I wish I did because I own him in an H2H league. He'll give you great help one week and then destroy your BA and contribute absolutely nothing for three straight weeks. McCutchen hasn't had an off week yet.
