    Dealing Scherzer...

    I have a guy in my league who was pretty upset when I took Scherzer in our draft with the pick right before his. He really wanted him on his team.

    Meanwhile, I'm really weak at 2B, and that owner has Jose Altuve, who would be an upgrade over my Daniel Murphy/Jedd Gyorko platoon.

    Would a deal of something like Scherzer and Gyorko for Altuve and Mike Minor be good for me? I downgrade a bit at SP, but Minor is looking like a stud as well. Plus, I get a significant upgrade at 2B.

    Thanks!

    • I think murphy is solid enough...i wouldn't lose a SP for the slight upgrade at 2nd.

    • I'd see how cheap you could get Kipnis..
      Maybe even offer 1 of your 2nd basemen straight up for him.I think Kipnis is a great buy low candidate,you don't lose all your skills in 1 season at his age!Another player I like that might be on your waivers is Getz,and keep a close eye on Profar,the #1 prospect in baseball.
      I wouldn't trade Scherzer for Altuve;Scherzer is a sleeper beast!And,I'd want a top 5 2nd baseman for him,,if I'd trade him at all.
