Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
NOTE: 20 team dynasty league.
My roster -
1B - R. Howard
2B - K. Johnson
3B - Chisenhall
SS - M. Izturis
OF - Lind, Boesch, Heyward
Util - Patterson, Ludwick
Bench - Heisey, Kipnis, Iglesias
SP - F. Hernandez, Hamels
RP - A. Bailey, Empty Spot
P - Shields, Dempster, Hughes, Porcello
Bench - Kendrick, Matusz, Banuelos
IR - Blackmon, Slowey, J. Santana
NOTE: "Empty Spot" designates that I don't have a 2nd relief pitcher. All of my roster spots are filled though.
Should I trade Shields (or perhaps Shields and Dempster) for Andrew McCutchen?
If you've got a question you'd like an opinion on, please just direct me to it. Be happy to help out. Thanks.
I mentioned this in your other thread, but given that you only have one true closer, you might want to consider packaging Bailey with a starter for offensive help. You would punt saves, but given that it's a H2H league, it's doable. In this case, you could sweeten the deal to the McCutchen owner by including Bailey. That might be enough to get him to agree to it.
I'd do that. Shields has been nice but his history makes me a little cautious about expecting the same type performance going forward. I think Cutch is a bit more of a sure-thing and your pitching staff can take a bit of a hit from the look of it.
