Two Big Trades Combined - WHIR

Postby JJGBPD » Thu Jul 14, 2011 5:09 am

Just looking for thoughts on which side is better not taking into consideration positions or the team etc etc, just talent on the trade:

My Matt Holliday-Justin Upton-Carlos Quentin-Danny Espinosa-Josh Beckett-Phil Humber-Brian Wilson

for

Matt Kemp-Mark Teixeira-Max Scherzer-Jhoulys Chacin-Wandy Rodriguez-Jonathan Papelbon

I was going to drop Quentin and Espinosa anyway as they were a useless bench bat I never used and I like Kemp-Texeira better than Holliday-Upton. I hated losing Beckett, but think Scherzer-Chacin-Wandy-Pap have the opportunity to be better overall than Beckett-Humber-Wilson. Thoughts? Thanks!

I'd go for it. Like you said, Kemp/Tex are a better duo then Holliday/Upton. Quentin and Espinosa are replaceable (especially if they are riding the pine on your team) Papelbon and Wilson are a wash. While it does suck to lose Beckett, I am a firm believer in offense being more imoportant in fantasy, so the trade helps you more then it hurts.

Looks like you gained a bit more offense at the expense of some pitching. End of the day you got arguably the 2 best players in the deal so value wise you made out slightly better.

Kemp and Teix?

Yeah, I'm doing that trade I think. The (current) best player in the game + the best second half hitter in the game? ;-D
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
