Acquiring Dempster WHIR

Postby StateOfGrace » Sun May 29, 2011 9:47 am

12 team H2H league 6x6 (OPS & QS) no max innings pitched rule.

I have been trying in vain to acquire Dempster for over a month. The Dempster owner said he likes Howie Kendrick. He wants another player from my roster in return but we haven't been able to agree on who the player is. Here is my roster. Any input would be appreciated:

C- McCann
1B- Fielder
2B- Uggla
SS- A. Cabrera
3B- Longoria
OF- Bruce
OF- Rasmus
OF- C. Lee
Util- Damon
Bench- Kendrick
DL- Heyward
DL- Sandoval

SP- Gallardo
SP- Marcum
SP- Billingsley
SP- Kuroda
SP- Cueto
SP- Norris
SP- Hamels
SP- J. McDonald
RP- Putz
RP- Kimbrel
RP- C. Perez

Dempster's only success this year has been against crappy teams, and his ERA is over 6 and WHIP is around 1.5 I believe. Kendrick has been one of the best 2B all year. It won't stay this way, but the batting average is legit. Dempster isn't worth giving up a red-hot Kendrick even in a straight up deal in my opinion.

help on mine?

Well, since the other manager knows that you want Dempster really bad, why, I have no idea, but of course he is now going to try to steal players from you. With your slim bench, Kendrick is way more valuable to you then Dempster. I really don't see how Dempster makes your team better.

Ok, thanks guys. My co-manager in my league thinks I'm an idiot for wanting to do the trade. You've now confirmed his suspicions! !+)

Kendrick is not flashy, but I think he nets you more than a Dempster. Or better stated, you can have Dempster for less. He recently went for D. Lee in one of my leagues.

I can't believe the other guy didn't take H.k. straight up.
