Hermida vs Kemp

Postby Members Only Jackets » Sun Jun 11, 2006 1:52 am

both are still prospects IMO so i'll ask this in the Minor League forum...

Should I offer my Kemp for his Hermida in my CBS points/keeper league?

sort of a sell high on Kemp and buy low on Hermy.

thanks

Hard to say, Hermida has an amazing eye with pretty good tools. Where as Kemp is more raw, but you can debate that his tools are better. I could see either one becoming the better overall player in the future. So I guess my advice would be if you want to go safer, try and grab Hermida ... if not maybe stay put w/ Kemp.

Interesting how the stock of certain players rise & fall throughout the season...3 months ago it would be a slam dunk in favor of Hermida...but that's how things go.

Yep, prospects values are very much in flux so to speak. Basically cause no one ever knows who will pan out or not, they don't have the track records of players in the MLB. The prospects that have tools and just figure it out, those are the ones that tend to climb the quickest.

but doesn't Hermida have less competition? Kemp will fight with Ethier and Guzman for playing time right?

The Dodgers see Kemp as their future at CF so the others don't hold that much of a threat long term. Lofton is their other CF and he is only signed for one year.
