Verlander

Postby the mexicutioner » Tue Jun 02, 2009 6:17 pm

i think now may be the time to sell high on verlander? he's 5-0 on the month w/ 56Ks in 41 innings w/ a 1.52 & .9 WHIP. is he gonna have a cy young year, or is it really time to cut ties with a dude i picked up off the wire in the first month? i'm trying to package him and volstad for an elite guy. I'm looking at Haren, Sabathia, Halladay, etc. What'd you think of this idea, who are the guys you'd target? Is it even worth it?

I'd do that trade for CC or Halladay, but not Haren.

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.

ok. got a counter offer of halladay and berkman for verlander and pena. berkman's been struggling all season, doesn't even have a single stolen base. but i get a BIG upgrade at pitcher. just worried berkman will be a dud all season. pena is a 6th roung keeper for me, though I doubt I'll keep him, draften j upton in the 8th. anyway, do i do this?

grey, not to be a nag but didn't you recommend that 'nostrathomas' not accept an offer of verlander and volstad for CC when he asked about this like five messages prior to this query? am i missing something?

I'd want the CC side there. And I'd want the Halladay side of yours. Not sure I understand the discrepancy. He's giving one great pitcher for two. I wouldn't do that. You're giving one risky, although potentially solid pitcher and a first baseman who will hurt you on average for Berkman and Halladay. Am I missing something?

nostrathomas is my roommate and fantasy rival. i referred to him as "the handler" in a previous post, his league name (no trading w/ him this season i see). and that guy is confused, cc for verland/volstad is not an even trade, cc side wins. told me (verland/volstad) to trade for cc and nostrathomas (cc) to NOT accept the deal. it's confusing when we both ask the same source for advice. funny.
