20 Team H2H Points League. 27 man rosters. Keep 22. I know from the first look the deal looks like it leans heavy one way but I'm just curious if my suspicions are correct.

 

Stephen Strasburg + Walker Buehler

or 

Luke Weaver + AJ Puk

 

One reason I'm thinking it might not be as clear cut as it looks is the injury history of Strasburg and Buehler and the age difference with Strasburg.

It has to be Strasburg and Buehler by a wide margin. Sure, both have their injury history, but Strasburg is a proven top 10 pitcher. He’s still just 29. And Buehler has a very high ceiling.

 

Weaver is a very promising young pitcher. Puk is a great prospect with pedigree and promise. But there is just too much variance on that side. Weaver has only shown it in the majors for a third of a season. You hope he turns into what Strasburg is.

 

There’s always the chance Weaver is this year’s Severino, Strasburg gets hurt and the Weaver side wins. That’s just the nature of the game. But the wise play here is going with the bird in the hand over the bird in the bush.

I ended up settling on moving Strasburg + Mahle for Weaver + Puk. I've now got a solid core of SP and Buehler, Puk, Quantrill, Kyle Wright, and Fulmer to look forward to.

I must say, you have guts.
