Selling offense for Greinke??

Postby morecowbell » Thu Apr 11, 2013 9:13 am

Big fan of this site - feels like a gold mine. Need some help - I'm trying to get Greinke, or someone similar. I'm in a [email protected] 5x5 leauge, 12-team. We use SV, ERA, WHIP, K/9, and QS. For offense it's the usual with OBP instead of AV.

That being said, I've got: Bumgarner, Samardjia, Bailey, Milone, Ryu, and Fernandez.

For offense, I have:
Pierzynski
Goldschmidt
Kinsler
Aramis Ramirez (currently using Plouffe as a bandaid)
Rollins
Bautista
Adam Jones
Pence
Pagan
Crisp

On the bench are JJ Hardy and M. Young.

Trying to get Greinke, or someone like him. Really want a guy with good WHIP and ERA, not as concerned about K/9. Trade I'm looking at right now gives me Reddick and Greinke but I have to give up Jones. Gonna shoot it down, but can you geniuses give me some tips on how to move up in the world?

Thanks.

I think I would have been fine doing the Reddick and Greinke for Jones deal. I have Jones and Greinke pretty close in value.

thanks. You don't think it's giving up too much on offense to get Greinke? Ask for Torii Hunter instead of Reddick?

Won't Reddick give you more than Hunter in every cat except AVG/OBP?

Depends on whose projections you're looking at. I need RBI the most, so whichever will get me more RBI is who I would take.

I like Reddick b/c he sits in a 3 spot while Hunter sits in the 2 spot. Reddick has a slightly higher K% and comparable walk%. Is his recent wrist injury something to worry about?

Reddick should get more HRs and maybe RBIs. Grey is way down on Hunter and still has him 3 spots higher at 35th vs 38th outfielder. He also has him at only .260 and I see his floor at .280. I think Hunter steals more and easily breaks 100 runs in that line up. But if all you are concerned about is RBIs Reddick is probabaly a little better, just because he is a 3 instead of 2,
