Kemp trade

Postby Padres Fan » Sun Feb 12, 2012 6:09 pm

I am in a Team based Dynasty league and I have the Dodgers (we also have a 120 salary cap, based on 2011 MLB salaries),

The owner of the Rangers wants Kemp and offered me Josh Hamilton/Mike Trout/Nefatali Feliz/Mitch Moreland/Leonys Martin/Derek Holland/Yu Darvish for my Matt Kemp/Clayton Kershaw/Ted Lilly/James Loney

Option 2 is

Mike Trout/Nefatali Feliz/Mitch Moreland/Leonys Martin/Derek Holland for my Matt Kemp

Should I bite?

No way do i trade those two guys for that, you arguably have the best hitter and the best pitcher in the game on your team... adding an injury prone slugger who's in his 30s and due to break down more and more, and a prospect (good one but still a prospect) and a bunch of spare change and a japanese import, just does not cut it... Don't trade Kemp and Kershaw! :-o

You mentioned salaries but not other information in regards to that. How does the salaries effect your team. By adding all of those players, how are you going to make room for all of them.

It is very tempting, I will say. Kemp is no sure thing right now so getting Hamilton and Trout could make this a win for you. Trout is going to be really good. Darvish and Holland would give you more depth but at a pretty big cost.

So what are you trying to do here. Are you here to win now or are you having to rebuild. The actual Dodgers team is pretty bad so a trade like this could make you into a contender but not likely a championship.

Need more info but I would probably decline. It is very tempting but having the best SP and best OF is hard to give up even for that much talent.

Ive been thinking about this for a while, and I think Im going to have to agree. Getting Hamilton/Trout/Darvish is tempting, but there are too many question marks there. Will Hamilton stay healthy? (doubtful) Will Trout become what he is hyped to be? Will Darvish make the transition better than any import? With Kemp and Kershaw, you hold the proven commodities, and I think I would keep it that way.

Help with mine?

Yeah you have the best players on your team, and there is a lot of questions on the other side, although nice upside.

well I am trying toi get max value players where I could turn around and trade them to fill some holes at 2nd/3rd base, since the real life dodgers are pretty weak there. Salaries is through the COTS site from 2011. Been trying to move Billinsley/Lilly/Loney and Ethier more, none of my players are paid more than 9.5 million a season and I still have $55m cap space to play with.

But thinking it over I need to keep Kemp and Kershaw as core players

That about covers it for me. Keep your studs for now as you should have plenty of cap space.
