Should I do this trade?

Postby kesaber » Mon Apr 25, 2011 1:15 am

My: Clayton Kershaw, Jose Reyes, Craig Kimbrel

His: Carlos Gonzalez and Jose Bautista

It seems like a great deal, but I already have pretty solid batters (It's only been 2 weeks, but I've killed in batting in almost all categories). I'd get a lot more strikeouts, I'd lose stolen bases, which I'm leading in, but not by much. I am, however, not doing too hot in the strike out section. Is my team hot now and will cool off so I should take the trade? Or is it usually a good deal, but not in my case?

Matt Wieters
Miguel Cabrera
David Wright

I like CarGo over Kersh, while I like Reyes over Bautista. I like the side with the best player, which in this case is CarGo. The question is, does it work with your team?

I feel like this trade doesn't address your described weakness (Ks) while weakening your strengths (SBs, offense). You've got a pretty solid offense, and Migs is a pretty steady force. I think I'd lean towards staying put.
