    Is it time to trade Cueto?

    His stock is up.... Thoughts?

    • I don't think so. Cueto's value when he's healthy, which he appears to be, is way higher than most people are probably willing to give him credit for right now. There are a lot of owners who still pay attention to that pre-season ranking next to a name. If anything, I'd say Cueto might be a buy low candidate.

      • I agree with John. 2 years ago he was one of the best pitchers in the league, but you never heard about him. For whatever reason he doesn't seem to get much appreciation. If you can get something nice in return there is no reason not to trade, but odds are people won't offer much for him. If that's the case just enjoy the numbers he puts up.

      • I'm not sure how you can call Cueto buy-low, since his value will probably never be as high as it is now. After today he will probably be a top 15 player yahoo's rankings.

        I completely agree with "a lot of owners who pay attention to. . . pre-season ranking". I think historically mediocre pitchers, who out-pitch expectations are the toughest players to trade for value. I remember trying to trade Cliff Lee during his 2008 break-out season, and no one biting. Everybody is waiting for the bust.

        Cueto's value is not in his sell-high status, but in his draft value versus current value to a team. I think you should just enjoy a well performing player that you drafted for a bargain.

      • It's gonna be hard to buy low after a complete game, 3 hits allowed, 12k, shutout.

    • When he's on he's one of the best pitchers in the game. I would only trade him for top dollar talent so if you do want to trade him aim high
