Take or Leave This Kershaw Offer? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Sun Aug 07, 2011 9:31 am

I was offered this by a team out of the playoff mix. Been trying hard to remain in the mix, currently in 7th with only 6 spots but 6 games back of 1st. Take or leave this offer?

I give: Cargo and Felix Hernandez (cargo 1 more keeper year, Felix two more)
I get: Kershaw, Ubaldo, and Fernando Salas (All in last keeper year)

Note: I was not planning to keep Cargo but I was potentially going to keep Felix. I may just keep 5 hitters plus Halladay though. But does this deal help me enough to justify dealing those guys? Do I rob Peter to pay Paul by moving Felix?

Not sure who this Salad characters is. :-D

Though I don't think I would do this trade. I am not sure who much it helps your team right now plus you lose two valuable keepers (or one if you just keep Felix.)

If you're contending this year I like this trade.. otherwise no. I'm not sure how attainable 6 games is in your league.. If you think you can possibly make a run this year this is a help to your staff. Salas has been pretty solid and masterson and kershaw are both the ace of their team.

If you're not planning on keeping any of these players it's also a no brainer.. take the deal.

If you're looking towards next year, it's a no go.

no brainer....
i'd keep: Cargo and Felix Hernandez
easily in any situation and that's not close.

Besides, you'd give up extra years of studs for rentals NO WAY AND THATS NOT AN UPGRADE IF YOU ASK ME!

Kershaw is a beast but Felix is Felix and Cargo is a stud. 2 years of Felix and 1 more season of Cargo any day ending in Y. ;-D
