    With questions like this, it always helps to post the rest of your roster. If you've got 6 catchers and 20 starting pitchers already, probably doesn't make much sense. However, if you're trying to get a little bit younger and need need a future catcher, go ahead. As McCutchen ages, I think he'll end up playing like Torii Hunter, which is still pretty good. I'm not sure what kind of player Puig is yet.

  • In - Stephen Strasburg
    Out - Javier Baez, Yovanni Gallardo, Bruce Rondon

    20 team dynasty league, meaning we keep the entire roster from season to season. I feel like I ought to push accept for a variety of reasons. I'm essentially in win-now mode with this roster, even though it's still pretty young, after finishing 4th out of 20 last season. Baez's strike-out rate is absurd. The power and bat-speed are there, but I don't trust him to develop into anything more than Adam Dunn or Dan Uggla. Gallardo isn't a 200K pitcher any more, and he's moving to a band-box in Texas. Seems like a recipe for another Prince Fielder situation. Rondon, while having upside, doesn't have a closer's job, at least not yet. With Strasburg, I'd have 4 pitchers that can likely hit 200Ks, and keep their ERA around 3.00. Plus, I've got Paxton and Walker developing in Seattle. Losing Baez poses a little bit of an issue just because I won't have an instant backup for Murphy and Castro, but I've still got my pick in the draft coming up, and I'll be able to pick up a prospect (Schwarber, Paulsen) or replacement (Grant Green, Jung-ho Kang) at some point as well.

    Current Roster:
    C - Gattis
    1B - Freeman
    2B - D. Murphy
    3B - Machado
    SS - Castro
    OF - Stanton, A. Jones, R. Davis
    Util - Soler, P. Alvarez
    Bench - Marisnick, Spangenberg, A. Hanson
    SP - Bumgarner, Greinke
    RP - C. Allen, Mejia
    P - Samardzija, Gallardo, Betances, J. Paxton
    Bench - T. Walker, Walden, Farquhar, B. Rondon
