Blackmon for Bauer?

Recommended Posts

Points league, my pitching staff is kind of weak. Team looks like 

C JT

1B Hoskins

2B Chavis

3B Carpenter

SS Correa 

2B/SS Segura

1B/3B Suarez

OF Benentendi 

OF Harper

OF Senzel

OF Kris Bryant

OF Blackmon

Utility Corey Seager (hate him)

I have Jiminez, Biggio, and Kevin cron on my bench. Just picked those two up. 

 

Pitchers 

Nola

Castillo

Flaherty

Berrios

Wheeler

Gray (ew) 

Archer (also ew)

Porcello

Jordan Hicks

jimmy Nelson and Andrew Heaney on the IL

I would like to get another ace in there if I could, and I feel like now is a good time to try and get Bauer

I would see how Bauer pitches during his next start. Been struggling & if that continues, Charlie & another player may get you someone else. Your SP isn't bad, just needs consistency.

What's crazy about Bauer is that his BABIP is very low, but his walk rate and HR rate are much higher.  the BABIP should come up a fair amount and his FIP supports him showing an even worse ERA...

I'd try to trade for someone else.

Only in CATEGORY leagues are you concerned WHERE your points are coming from because the cats are half hitting and half pitching.  You don't need to even out your cats in points leagues. 

That being said, I don't know what your points settings are but Blackmon is having a great season and my guess he is getting a ton more points than Bauer.  Even if Bauer starts to pitch well, my guess is that you could do a lot better.

I think Blackmon will be worth sufficiently more than Bauer this season that you'll regret it, even if pitching is an area of need.  No judgement for doing it, but know you're paying a premium. 

 

Help?
