I just made this deal in a 12 team keeper league (6x6 w/ HLDs and OPS, keep 10):
**EDIT: My roster in the 3rd post down.**
I give Ricky Romero, Chad Billingsley and Mike Leake
I get Clayton Kershaw and a 2nd round pick after keepers (12th round overall)
I talked to a couple people around and everyone said this was legit...but now we're going through a voting process and a couple guys chasing me in the standings are making a fuss over the deal, wanting to have it vetoed. There's no collusion involved whatsoever...the guy giving Kershaw has Joe Blanton rostered to tide his staff over and is in desperate need of depth. I have depth to deal him. In fact, I have never talked to the guy this year other than to negotiate this deal.
I checked out some numbers, and Billingsley hasn't been as bad as the numbers suggest (3.41 FIP, .333 BABIP). Take out the monstrosity against the Yankees a few weeks back and Romero has the same numbers as Kershaw minus a few K's. Leake is a good young pitcher who has a decent chance at being able to be kept for free this year (<30 appearances). I don't see this as incredibly lopsided...am I totally off the mark?
Leave a link, I will return the favour!
