Ok, so I have been going back and forth for 2 days with this guy. The offer is...I give up Carlos Lee, Roy Oswalt, Rich Harden, & Pablo Sandoval and I get Matt Kemp, Tim Lincecum, Joakim Soria, and Xavier Nady. I'm hesitant on Nady because my OF woud be too crowded...I think I would rather another pitcher instead. He's got Greinke, Haren, Kershaw, Bedard and Hamels. Which one do you think I should target? Here's what my roster looks like. 14 Team H2H league. *Sandoval is not eligible at C.
Active Batters Posada, Jorge C NYY Votto, Joey 1B CIN Cano, Robinson 2B NYY Wright, David 3B NYM Hardy, J.J. SS MIL Crawford, Carl LF TB Lee, Carlos N. LF Quentin, Carlos LF CHW Pence, Hunter RF HOU (U) Active Pitchers Billingsley, Chad SP LA Harden, Rich SP CHC Oswalt, Roy SP HOU Slowey, Kevin SP MIN Vazquez, Javier SP Jenks, Bobby RP CHW Gregg, Kevin RP CHC Reserve Batters Sandoval, Pablo 1B SF Hudson, Orlando 2B LA Furcal, Rafael SS LA Jones, Adam CF BAL Snider, Travis OF TOR Spilborghs, Ryan RF COL Reserve Pitchers Cueto, Johnny SP CIN Young, Chris R. SP SD Lindstrom, Matt RP FLA
I think Matt Kemp could end up being better then Carlos Lee. Tim Lincecum is much better then Rich Harden.(Because of health issues with Harden.) Roy Oswalt is a huge loss but the upgrade of Lincecum should help. Joakim Soria is one of the best closers in the game to me and should make the loss of Sandoval not much of an issue. I also think you could trade Nady for someone to improve another position.
Sandoval is touted as the biggest prospect in SF's organization since Matt Williams...not easy to get rid of Harden because of a potential great healthy season, Oswalt will be consistent, and Lee is a perennial .300-30-100-100 guy. I don't think this is the year that he declines. Hamels instead of Soria would help but I don't know if he would do that. What about Greinke?
