Trade Youkilis for Kemp??

Postby kool38 » Thu Mar 10, 2011 5:23 pm

I'm in a standard league and this other guy is really after Youkilis.

He wants to give me Kemp/McGehee for Youkilis.
Is this a fair trade or am I not really improving my lineup?

I had planned to move Youk to 3B to improve that while moving Dunn to 1B.

C Miguel Montero (Ari - C)
1B Kevin Youkilis (Bos - 1B)
2B Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
3B Plácido Polanco (Phi - 2B,3B)
SS Hanley Ramírez (Fla - SS)
OF Josh Hamilton (Tex - OF)
OF Álex Ríos (CWS - OF)
OF Shane Victorino (Phi - OF)
Util Adam Dunn (CWS - 1B)
Util Chris Young (Ari - OF)
SP Justin Verlander (Det - SP)
SP Dan Haren (LAA - SP)
RP Jonathan Broxton (LAD - RP)
RP John Axford (Mil - RP)
P Max Scherzer (Det - SP)
P Ryan Franklin (StL - RP)
P Colby Lewis (Tex - SP)
P James Shields (TB - SP)
BN Colby Rasmus (StL - OF)
BN Aaron Hill (Tor - 2B)
BN Ángel Pagán (NYM - OF)
BN Ryan Raburn (Det - 2B,OF)
BN Adam LaRoche (Was - 1B)

I'd make that trade. You get the better player and McGehee to boot.

Not a bad trade value-wise, but I don't think it helps your team if you have to put Polanco back out there at 3rd. Your OF is pretty good as it is, and you've got Rasmus and Raburn on the bench, who are 2 nice sleepers this year. Not sure I would do it.

I think moving Dunn to 1b and McGhee to 3b would work (assuming McGhee is 3b eligible in your league). I like Youk but Kemp a potential 30/30 player. I'd do it.

I think Kemp for Youk is fair enough on its own, so adding in McGehee makes this a solid move for you.

I'd stick with Youk, you have tons of outfielders and Polanco is not acceptable as a starting 3B.

McGehee would slide into his 3B slot, I assume.

If I make the trade, Polanco would probably drop off the roster altogether.
the new lineup would look like this:
C Miguel Montero (Ari - C)
1B Adam Dunn (CWS - 1B)
2B Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
3B McGehee
SS Hanley Ramírez (Fla - SS)
OF Josh Hamilton (Tex - OF)
OF Álex Ríos (CWS - OF)
OF Kemp
Util Shane Victorino (Phi - OF)
Util Chris Young (Ari - OF)
BN Colby Rasmus (StL - OF)
BN Aaron Hill (Tor - 2B)
BN Ángel Pagán (NYM - OF)
BN Ryan Raburn (Det - 2B,OF)
BN Adam LaRoche (Was - 1B)
