Who to Start Message Board
I am in a keeper league.
In my outfield, I currently have Carlos Lee, Alfonso Soriano, Matt Kemp, Magglio Ordonez and Shin-Soo Choo.
My starting pitching is really great with Roy Halladay, Justin Verlander, Jered Weaver, Adam Wainwright, Rick Porcello, Javier Vazquez, Derek Lowe, Matt Cain, Dave Bush.
I am killing my league so far in ERA, WHIP, etc. with my starting staff. However, I am losing my grip on offense, particularly homers where Kemp and Ordonez really has shown no power.
I got the following offer:
Matt Holliday FOR Matt Cain
It kind of depends where Holliday ends up but I feel my OF may be just as good with him or without him.
If I did this, I would drop Choo and pick up a Gavin Floyd or someone like that who is on free agent to replace Cain.
I am leaning towards NOT doing this as I think my OF is good enough and Cain could be a #1 arm soon, if not already.
What do you think?
I agree with you. Holliday may be tailing off, hopefully not, but Cain is a very underrate...
I agree with you. Holliday may be tailing off, hopefully not, but Cain is a very underrated pitcher. He gets no run support and is currently overshadowed by Tim Lincecum. You may be happier in the long run if you don't do this trade.
