Help Please!

Postby benchland » Thu May 12, 2011 10:37 pm

My ERA and WHIP is F*&ked this year. I need roughly 30 straight scoreless IP to gain 1 point in ERA or WHIP in my league at this stage. I can gain 9 points in pitching categories by streaming, which two other teams have elected to do already. I can add another ~ 30 points in hitting categories with some avg help, more R's and RBI's. I'm near the top in HR (tied for second and the guy who I want to get Braun from is 1st) and SB.

The big question I have is, do I offer Lester and Pence for Braun? Braun is a 5th round keeper in a 16 team league next year. If I'm streaming SP, will this help me accomplish my needs?

Of note, I have acquired Lind, Cano, Pence, Ortiz and Lester via trade in the past two weeks for R Martin, G Sanchez(hurts with his recent performance and Lind not playing!), Uggla, Hammels, Abreu and Valverde.

I think I have upgraded my team through trades but am always curious for any other input or advice on trade thoughts. Or should I sit tight for a bit and hope my SP can rally and live up to their potential?

Thanks in advance!

I don't think it's awful, especially considering the way Braun has hit. If you're streaming pitching, I guess it makes more sense. I like the guys you have on that team aside from Lester as well. I'm not sure if you read Grey's last post about FIP, but you have a couple of guys on that pitching staff that have underperformed.

Thanks for the reply!

I did read his post and picked up Narveson again after he kicked me in the nuts earlier this year. Will I hold on to him? Not likely but he has two great matchups on the way.

Streaming will help as I'm not far behind on the W and K totals.

Pence has killed me in R's due to the jack asses surrounding him and the 13 R differential between he and Braun is 5 points in my league at this stage...

Good luck, Braun is hard to get in a trade. I wouldn't move him if I had him in most situations.
