Keeper League Trade

Postby converge241 » Tue Nov 15, 2011 10:24 am

Which side would you rather have player(draft round cost) - Kemp (1st rd)/Freeman (22nd) or Miguel Cabrera (1st)/David Wright(17th)?

Thx in advance

Agreed.

Miggy 1st + Wright 17th

Miggy is better than Kemp and you have them in the same round.

Wright should outproduce Freeman, especially with the walls in the Mets' stadium being moved in. Freeman has upside, especially as a 22nd round guy. Though Wright in the 17th still has massive value and more than Freeman IMO.

Thanks guys, it seemed like the right move but blinded myself a little being in the trade ;-D

Agreed.

Cabrera and Wright are both top 20 players. That can't be said for the other side.

I prefer Kemp slightly to Cabrera, but David Wright in round 17 is a much better value than Freeman in round 22. I have to side with the Cabrera/Wright keeper duo as well.

I know you are a Dodgers fan, but come on now, really?

Kemp had an MVP season for sure, but Miggy has been a top 5 stud for years now. And 1B is slightly more shallow than OF.

If Kemp repeats his 2011 performance in 2012, I would agree that they are in the same class. But until that happens, I'm taking Miggy over Kemp all day.

Position scarcity means nothing to me in the first round. It's just the way that I prefer to construct my roster. I'm adding as many power/speed players as possible so that I don't need to have Wily Taveras-lite chewing up a starting roster spot. I don't think that you can go wrong with either player. Miggy is a safe pick.
