Lowrie/Bautista/Gregg for Choo/Kemp

Postby TrippySG » Thu Apr 28, 2011 1:45 pm

**** Title edited to highlight new proposal ******

Just received a weird trade proposal, giving my Lowrie/Roberts for his Choo/Cain. Normally Id be all over this, but at my current #1 ranking and riduculously balanced lineup, Im not so sure I should mess with it. Any thought on if I should really accept this?

Take it and run... you're getting the two best players by far in the deal.

Absolutely take this. Lowrie is a backup for you. Choo is elite. Roberts is waver wire fodder once his bat cools, which it absolutely will.

This improves your team ten fold.

This was my thought as well, its hard to mess with something working well though, especially when I am getting consistent production better than I have before with this current team. I just needed to hear someone else say it I guess, and it would really shore up my ERA problem caused by Jackson and Dempster.

Take this trade and run.

I own Cain, and I wish I owned Choo. O:-)

You're managing a fantasy lineup not a real life lineup :-b

You aren't going to disturb any chemistry amongst your team :)

OK so before I could accept this trade, he took it down and proposed another one:
Lowrie/Bautista/Kimbrel for Cain/Choo/League/Andrus

I dont want that offer because I dont need Andrus and League will soon be replaced by Aardsma (who I have on the DL), but he proposed that he is up for anything really, so I am thinking the following:

Lowrie/Bautista for Choo/Kemp

He really wants HR, and although Bautista is awesome, I think Kemp is up for huge numbers and Choo is solid and they make a better combination than Swisher Bautista and Roberts. Since I dont absolutely need Lowrie (Phillips and Castro are performing admirably), I think this could end up being better for me. Is this a fair reply? Any thoughts?

I like this trade for a few reasons:

-You get Cain, which will bolster your SP.
-You get to ride League out until Aardsma gets back.
-Maybe trade Andrus should you get him?

Just my 2 cents... :-)

Well the final trade offer is this:
Lowrie/Bautista/Gregg
for
Choo/Kemp


I like this, especially since I have Aardsma coming off the DL soon to get another closer. Am I crazy for giving up Bautista, I think the HR total will spread out over the other 2 OF with more contributions and a power OF of Kemp/Choo/Swisher/Roberts. Any feedback will be returned
