Does this trade help or hinder my team?

Postby B.J. » Sat May 09, 2009 3:44 pm

Another owner in my league just put Adam Jones, Carlos Lee, Brian Roberts and Aaron Hill on the block. I am considering making an offer of one my SP (preferably Cueto, Hughes or Josh Johnson, as I'm not looking to move Gallardo, Greinke, Santana or Haren) and Robinson Cano for Brian Roberts and using my empty roster spot to grab either Ricky Nolasco or Barry Zito to replace Cueto or Jhonny Peralta because Rollins is still sucking

Cano and Roberts will both hit for close to if not over .300 and Cano has the slight edge in HR and RBI but Roberts has the edge in Runs and SB (SB be a large margin as Cano is not really a threat to steal).

Is the Cano/SP too much to give for an aging 2B? Can my SP afford to lose either of those guys? should I offer another SP instead of Cueto or Johnson?

I feel as if my team struggles every week with SB and Runs and that's what Roberts has to offer. He's looking to add a quality arm to his rotation of IMO bums. No one of his staff grabs my attention other than Harden and maybe Wandy.

His team:

C- Iannetta 1B- Teixeira 2B- A. Hill SS- Asdrubal Cabrera 3B- Larry Jones
OF- Quentin, Beltran, Lee (as he calls it Team Carlos) UTIL- Adam Jones
Bench- Tulo, B. Roberts, Chris Davis

SP- J. Shields, Harden
RP- Soria, Francisco
P- Lindstrom, Millwood, Washburn
Bench- Wandy, Marquis, Richmond
DL- Devine, Duchscherer
10 Team Yahoo H2H

C- Posada 1B- Miggy C 2B- Beckham 3B- Zimmerman SS- A. Ramirez
OF- J. Upton, McCutchen, G. Sizemore UTIL- Fielder
SP- Hanson, J. Weaver RP- Marmol, Hanrahan
P- B. Anderson, T. Lilly, R. Nolasco

Bench- J. Bruce, M. Pineda, R. Romero, Capps, A. Gordon, J. Zimmermann
DL- Greinke, Utley

I don't think you need Roberts.

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.
