Chris Young, Izturis and Tim Hudson for Matt Kemp?? WHIR!!

Postby BiGAnT » Mon Apr 25, 2011 12:55 am

I was offered Matt Kemp for my Chris Young, Maicier Izturis and Tim Hudson. Is this a good deal for me? My first reaction was yes, especially because I need help with HRs and RBIs BUT my ERA is literally over 5 on the season (I HAD Lackey and Pavano, and currently have Dempster and Zambrano) so I feel like losing Hudson is huge for me. I'm not worried about Izturis, he was a fill in for Phillips in case he went on the DL, and this kid literally has NO 2B (he never picked one up after Nishioka went on the DL, and he has Utley too) And I love Chris Young's potential but he's very streaky and is a major liability when it comes to average. So I think its solid but I don't want to pull the trigger without getting a couple opinions first, so please, all the help will be much apppreciated!! Drop your link and I promise everything will be returned, thanks!! :-)

Here's my roster:
C Geovany Soto
1B Ryan howard
2B Brandon Phillips
3B Casey McGehee
SS Jimmy Rollins
OF Alex Rios
OF Chris Young
OF Vladimir Guererro
Util Jed Lowrie
BN Sam Fuld
BN Maicier Izturis

SP Roy Halladay
SP Chris Carpenter
SP Tim Hudson
RP Jordan Walden
RP Mitchell Boggs
P Brandon McCarthy
P Ryan Dempster
P Carlos Zambrano
P Sergio Santos
P Aroldis Chapman

I would do it... I think.

Hudson won't have a sub 3 era this year but he won't have over 3 either so..

You obviously get the best player in the deal, in Kemp. I see him as having a stellar year. It hurts a little to lose Hudson, but you have a pretty solid staff and should stay competitive, despite your ERA situation up until this point. There are probably some nice options on the wire to add to your staff.

Easy accept IMO. Izturis is a player who can be found on the WW. Hudson helps your ratios but isn't a complete package as he doesn't K many. I surely don't expect him to duplicate his ERA of last year either. Make the trade and work the wire for hot pitchers.

Wish I would get this kind of trade offer. You take Matt Kemp every time for those 3.

TAKE IT!

Super value for you. You can fill any cracks later on.... esp in pitching.


Looking for some input. Return the favour.

Absolutely! Hudson is NOT a great pitcher by any means. Look at his pathetic K/9 ration. Turner field is the only thing that keeps him being a viable fantasy option. there are most likely alot better pitchers on the free agent list that you can pick up. Izturis is easily dispensable. Young and Kemp have the potential to put up the same numbers, but they won't. Young has yet to steal a base, and batting in the middle of the lineup, it's likely he won't have as many SB's as he has had in previous season - On the other hand Kemp has already stolen like 8 bases or something. They are both strikeout machines, but Young is way more of a strike out machine. The only upside with Young is that he plays mostly at chase field while Kemp plays at dodger stadium. if the two were reversed in the teasm they play for, Kemp would annihilate Young's numbers. Take the trade, I'd do it in a heartbeat

I would recommend you to do the trade before the other guy changes his mind. Chris Young is inconsistent and you never know what to expect from him. Replacing him with Kemp is a huge boost. About Hudson, he can be replaced simply by streaming pitchers.
