Do I Trade Lincecum/Kershaw for Jose Reyes?

Postby rasto21585 » Mon Jun 06, 2011 9:32 pm

In my 20 team h2h dynasty league I was offered Jose Reyes for either my Kershaw or Lincecum. I think this trade would help out my team a lot but I am a little gunshy breaking up my big 3. What do you recommend I do? Team is belOw.

Nope, you're pitching staff definitely can't take a hit like that. It would be nice to get Reyes, but that's a steep price for you.

You could easily take the hit, but I'm not sure Reyes is worth it. You got young elite pitchers, and Reyes is getting older and is an injury waiting to happen. I wouldn't do it.

Young elite? Where? Oh, you must mean the pitchers he's trading away.....

I would consider Kershaw for Reyes, but I'd advise against it. Reyes is good, but I don't trust how long he would hold up. Throw in what your staff would look like after the trade and it's not all that desirable of a trade.

It's a risk/reward deal, and I'd sit on it. If you went for it, I wouldn't blame you. But, it's not the most solid deal for you.

Cheers! :)
