Trading Matt Kemp

Postby Mikdonn2 » Wed May 04, 2011 1:43 pm

I am currently in 2nd place in a 10 team Roto league. My offense has been doing very well and I have a deep bench. I've picked up guys like Polanco and Berkman which have been huge for me the 1st month.

Another manager is very down on Crawford and rightfully so. I think he would be willing to trade me CC & David Price for Kemp and another lesser bat. Crawford definitely is a reason for concern. He doesnt seem to be handling Boston well but he has batted better his past 9 games and Price has not been a stud either but i could use the help in ERA and whip. I think he will turn it around.

Here is my team:

C - Ramos
1B - M. Cabrera
2B - Weeks
3B - Polanco
SS - Rollins
OF - Kemp
OF - Ichiru
OF - BJ Upton
Util - Berkman
Util - Wallace
BN - Hunter
BN - Aviles
BN - Coghlan
BN - R. Roberts
DL - Zimmerman

SP - C. Lee
SP - Billingsley
P - Weaver
P - Cahill
P - Shields
P - Bumgardner
RP - Wilson
RP - League
RP - Chapman
RP - Veras


do I sit tight and not try to fix what is not broke or do I take a stab at two of the top players bouncing back in a big way. I'm thinking an offer of Kemp and either Coghlin/Roberts/Aviles/Hunter for Crawford/Price

any help would really be appreciated. is this too risky of a move considering their slow starts and how great kemp has been?

Depending on who the other bat is, I would do this. You get someone in CC who will come around and have close stats to Kemp and a great SP in Price.
C- McCann
MI- Tulo, Uggla, Stephen Drew
CI- A-rod, Berkman, Gaby Sanchez, Pedro Alvarez
OF- Nelson Cruz, C Quentin, Ichiro
SP- Lincecum, Carpenter, Latos, Jurrjens, Garza, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmerman, Clay Bucholz
DL- Peavy, Brandon Webb
