Ethier for Soria?

Postby Beane Disciple » Mon Jul 13, 2009 7:02 am

Throughout the course of the season I have traded my pitching in packaged deals in order to bolster my lineup as much as possible. What I'd like to do now is trade my hitters I don't need that badly for Starting and Relief Pitchers. I'm not expecting the world here; I know I can't touch any elite Starting Pitchers and won't be able to get strong closers for the most part.

Here's the one bench guy I have that I don't want but probably has the most value. What should I be looking to do with him? I have thought that I can either trade him straight up for a good closer (like Soria). But since he's my most valuable trade piece in this situation should I be dangling him in a deal for a decent starter instead?

Yes, you should be getting a starter. Think Wainwright.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
