My Konerko for michael young

Postby 49ers2724 » Tue May 24, 2011 11:54 pm

5x5 h2h 10 team daily league, money league. 25 roster spaces 2 dl. Would you trade konerko for young? I have 1b and 1b/3b locked down, Konerko is my dh and young would replace him for the mean time until he gets second base elegibility.
Value for value would u do this trade?

Nope. Konerko is an underrated beast. Unless you're desperate for a 2B, this would be an offensive downgrade if you're just playing him at UTIL.

I AGREE IF YOU NEED YOUNG FOR 2B IT'S A FINE DEAL BUT OTHERWISE DON'T DO IT. KONERKO WILL GET YOU ALL YOUNG'S STATS BUT MORE HR AND RBI

Skip it. You never know when Young's bottom's going to drop out, Konerko's more valuable than young anyway.

I love both those players and I have them both on my team.

I would say yes if you needed a 2nd baseman, but to fill in at your DH, it's not a good idea.

Konerko is a 40hr 110rbi threat whereas young will give you solid runs and rbis, but not so much hrs.

I agree with everyone saying that Konerko is one of the underrated players in fantasy.

I would keep Konerko.

No one for michael young? Shouldnt he have a better average also hitting in a hitter friendly park?

Who cares about his average. Get the best counting stats possible, and then just let your average take care of itself.

What in the world makes you think the bottom is going to drop for Young anytime soon?

@OP Basically what most are saying though...Konerko is better for your Ut spot but if you need a 2b then Young very well
might be more valuable to you team.
