Kemp for Wright WHIR

Postby hockeytownjoe » Sun Mar 06, 2011 11:59 pm

10 Team H2H Keeper League, 6x6 stats (We keep 8)

We haven't submitted keepers, so I was trying to upgrade my keepers. I tried getting Longoria, but he says he would rather keep him and instead trade me David Wright for my Matt Kemp.

I already have Ryan Zimmerman at 3B, but am leaning towards pulling the trigger. If nothing else, I can move Zimmerman after the re-draft to a team desperate for a 3B. Is this worth it for me? It doesn't upgrade my keepers much, but it's all that I've been able to work with. I'm also going to deal Gallardo for Weeks or Ethier, but I don't think either one will be kept (no one in my league is interested in 2-for-1's lol)

Here is my team, keepers are bolded.

C Buster Posey
1B Joey Votto
2B Kelly Johnson
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS Derek Jeter
OF Carlos Gonzalez
OF Matt Kemp (Would then become keeping David Wright)
OF Mike Stanton
Util Vladimir Guerrero
Util Shane Victorino
Bench Delmon Young
Bench Adam Laroche

SP Josh Johnson
SP Jon Lester
SP Yovani Gallardo
RP Mariano Rivera
RP Bobby Jenks
P Daniel Bard
P Jonny Venters
P Brett Anderson
Bench Dan Haren
Bench Tim Hudson
Bench Ian Kennedy

The other option would be to try and get a second player that I would keep and send him 2 more...though that might be a tall order. Other players of his are: Heyward, Pedroia, Cliff Lee, Sabathia

Thanks in advance!

I'd do it for sure bud...and you'd have an option of adding Delmon in his place since your swapping one keeper and need another one with the last slot, not a downgrade in my book. ;-D

If I do the deal, its one for one, so Wright would take Kemp's spot...I wouldn't have a spot to fill unless I dropped out of my current keepers (which I think the only one I can drop is Stanton).

I like it. As you stated, 3B is pretty shallow and Wright or Zimmerman can be traded for a King's ransom. Do it.

Looking for your return input....

I like the deal for you. You've got two solid OF keepers already in CarGo and Stanton, and gaining Wright gives you a lot of flexibility. With 3B being so shallow, you could probably deal Wright or Zimmerman later in the year for a nice haul (or hold onto them both and have two studly hitters).

Maybe I'm in the minority but I'd keep Delmon over Stanton.

Thanks for the input everyone.

I've toyed with it...I think for the most part I can take a risk with my last keeper given my team.
