I have had him since his call up in my 5x5 16 Team 7 player Keeper league and have much man-love for him, but I really need pitching and have been made an offer. I am hesitant to do this but would appreciate your thoughts. I am 2nd in wins but that # is deceptive because I have Clippard who has contributed 7 of those wins. I am middle to bottom in ERA WHIP.
This is a 5x5 7 man keeper my outfielders are - Braun/Crawford/Hamilton/Ludwick/Ross/G. Jones/Stanton
2b - Beckham/Castillo/Schumaker
Sp - Hanson/Hamels/Hudson/Matusz/J. Chacin
My keepers would be - Kinsler/Rollins/Crawford/Hamilton/Hanson/Carpenter/Many options for the last
Thanks for the help with mine. I wish I could give you better help with yours, but I am torn here.
Kinsler will help your 2B alot, since I don't like any of your options including Beckham; and Carpenter is definitely a front of the rotation ace.
However, Braun is an absolute man-beast and seeing that this is a keeper, his value is immense. Throw in Kinsler's injury concerns (and I guess Carpenter's as well since this is a keeper) and I hesitate.
I think I would hold off, but if you took the deal, I don't think I would criticize it at all.
I agree with above post. Both are injury risks. Even though Carpenter looks like that is behind him now. But Braun is a top 3 fantasy player, with hall of fame possibility. If I was going to trade him it would have to be for at least one player with less risk. But at the end of the day if you pull the trigger I couldn't say you made the wrong call either. Tough spot.
