Trading hitting for pitching

Postby Dingbat » Mon May 13, 2013 2:31 pm

Grey, or anyone:

I'm leading the league in hitting, thanks to a hot starts by Machado, Goldschmidt, Marte, and Choo. I've traded Pence, Greinke, Halladay, and Sandoval for Goldy, Zimmerman, Samardzija, and Medlen (two different trades), but my SPs are still looking pretty weak. The trade partner I'm targeting has a ridiculous number of solid SPs but a struggling offense. His roster:

C: McCann
1B: Pujols
2B: Matt Carpenter
3B: Moustakas
SS: Segura
OF: J. Upton, Craig, Ozuna
Util: L. Cain, Jennings
BN: Frazier, Arenado
DL: Heyward, Eaton

SP: Wainwright, Buchholz, Harvey, Moore, Zimmermann, Garcia, Latos, Miller, Borrow, Cingrani
RP: Reed, Grilli, Balfour

What are reasonable trade offers that I could make? I'm willing to sell high on any of my overperforming guys, or trade Zimmerman and let Machado handle 3B for my team. Here's what I've thought so far:

Zimmerman for Wainwright
Marte for Miller
Marte for Harvey
Machado for Zimmermann
Machado for Latos

Am I asking for too much? Too little?
10-Team Roto, 7x7 (5x5 + H,OPS,K/BB,QS)

C: Evan Gattis
1B: Edwin Encarnacion
2B: Brian Dozier
SS: Troy Tulowitzki
3B: Manny Machado
OF: Jose Bautista
OF: Charlie Blackmon
OF: Melky Cabrera
UT: Anthony Rizzo
UT: Ben Revere
BN: Gregory Polanco, Brandon Belt, Josh Harrison

SP: Jordan Zimmermann
RP: Koji Uehara
P: Hisashi Iwakuma
P: Masahiro Tanaka
P: Hyun-jin Ryu
P: Joaquin Benoit
P: Jenrry Mejia
P: Brad Boxberger
BN: Jake McGee, Matt Shoemaker, Danny Salazar, Brandon McCarthy

Zimmerman for Wainwright - Solid offer
Marte for Miller - doesn't seem enough but might be worth an offer. You might end up adding a player here
Marte for Harvey - Same as Miller
Machado for Zimmermann - Solid offer
Machado for Latos - Don't love it. Would rather have Machado.
