Woud you do this trade for deGrom?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I know I’d be giving up the best player by far, but I don’t think this is that lopsided at all. In an OBP league, Harper is a top 10-12 hitter overall and I think Castillo will overcome the slow start and finish in the top 15 SPs. What do others think?

10 team Mixed League, Roto with QS in place of W and OBP instead of AVG. Would you trade deGrom (best pitcher in the universe) for Bryce Harper and Luis Castillo? 

Whaddy say? 

I wouldn't. Degrom helped me win a championship the year he was sub 2 era. Dude looks to have another historic season. I love harper, but pitching is kind of rough outside degrom, cole and bieber.

People are forgetting that Castillo was a top 10 pitcher coming into the season. Harper in a OBP league is a stud. Castillo will bounce back, I am confident.

I am surprised that you didn't accept this trade yet.

DeGrom isn’t the best player by far. Harper is very underrated. I would do the trade.

Actually there’s a lot of good starters. Burnes, Woodruff, Nola, Kershaw, Buehler, Bauer...it sounds like you just named the top three starters before the season and assumed everyone else isn’t good. I question if you’ve even followed games this season. Burnes is right up there with DeGrom right now and you’re saying he’s “rough”?!

LOL...what? In my 12-team league, I have a 2.78 ERA, a sub-1.00 WHIP and second in strikeouts. Guess what? I do not any of the big three. Plenty of pitching to be had.

That said, I wouldn’t do the trade either. Castillo is a perfect buy low candidate and I bet you could get those two for a bit cheaper.

I know right, I should totally know who and how you guys are doing in your leagues.

Counter offer & just move citi field straight up for cheese steaks. 

So counter just to remove a player he is RECEIVING in the deal?

Nonsensical as always.

Keep deGrom as there is no comparative pitcher to him right now and although Harper is a stud, you can always find that hidden gem in some unknown that has a career year. Castillo is struggling and should get better as it gets warmer but he will kill your other categories occasionally.

Not according to MLB players.

Harper won the most overrated in a landslide

Castillo velocity is down

I think he's lucky to be top 30

DeGrom side

I'd rather have Degrom, in a QS league he's a top 5 player.  Harper is underrated in an OBP league, but not really sure about the Philly team around him for counting stats.  Castillo walks too many batters.

Only you would recommend making a WORSE trade.

A lot of the “instant no” people might be guys that play in .avg leagues.   Harper is pretty much Soto in .obp.   I don’t think it’s an absolute “no”.  degrom only pitched 70 innings last season, so you are  Likely getting 15-20% less of those elite numbers.  If I could replace Castillo with something close but more certain, I’d probably do it myself.
