Strasburg Value?

Postby Luke » Fri Jun 26, 2009 6:40 am

Quick background: I'm in a keeper H2H points-based league. The scoring system is slightly skewed towards starting pitchers, especially ones who can get quality starts.

The dilemma: My team is having a rough year and it would take a miracle for me to make the playoffs to defend my championship. We keep 5 guys each year and I've been offered Strasburg and J. Zimmermann for Lackey. I know it's just the Strasburg Kool-Aid I've been drinking but I'm actually contemplating the trade. I've owned Lackey for three years and he's been great at times but the injuries and now the sucking when healthy have chafed me. It boils down to two questions for me... is Strasburg worth the hype and even so is he somebody to keep in a 5-keeper league?

Thoughts are welcome. I could be crazy for even considering this offer but keeper leagues and possibly unwarranted hype make a man do funny things.

I'd take Zimm and Strasburg there. I actually think Zimm with his K/IP is worth the swap in a keeper. Strasburg is just great window dressing.

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.
