Kendrick/Pence/McCarthy for Espinosa/Heyward/Beachy? WHIR

Postby MurrayKy » Tue Mar 06, 2012 9:54 pm

I'm in a 20-team H2H Cats dynasty where you keep 25 of 29, and start one of each position plus a util, 5 starting pitchers and 5 relievers.

Offense CATS: H, R, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, K, BB, SB, CS, AVG
Pitching CATS: ERA, K, BB, K/BB, WHIP, HRA, SV, HD, W, L

I'd be giving up Howie Kendrick, Hunter Pence, and Brandon McCarthy for Danny Espinosa, Jason Heyward and Brandon Beachy.

I feel like I'm getting upgrades in RF and SP there, and a downgrade at 2B, which makes me wanna take it.

But any opinions? Thanks and WHIR.

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to include this stuff.

C. Ryan Doumit
1b. Adrian Gonzalez
2b. Howie Kendrick
3b. Evan Longoria

Be. Jean Segura
Be. Ryan Sweeney
Be. Alex Presley
Be. Jurickson Profar
Be. Hak-Ju Lee
Be. Victor Martinez (soon to be DL'd)

Sp. Brandon McCarthy
Sp. John Danks
Sp. Ryan Dempster
Rp. Jordan Walden

Rp. Mike Adams
Rp. Darren Oliver
Rp. Joel Peralta
Be. Brian Matusz

No would stay with what you have...and I'm a huge Braves fan.

I also am a Brandon Mcarthy fan, so to me Beachy is right there with him, Pence is well above my man Heyward (I hope not for long, but hoping is hoping) and you have one of the better 2b, if he can stay healthy.

I like your team the way it sits.

I like it. I love the upside of Heyward and Beachy. I don't love you losing Kendrick but I love everything else.

I don't like it. Heyward is a downgrade from Pence. Pence is going to give you strong consistent numbers across the board, ill take that anyday over Heyward's potential to not just bounce back but to achieve the high goals every had for him, especially in a really deep league.

Well if you were rebuilding I'd take this trade, but you got a championship caliber team for a deep league. Sit tight, though at SP you are upgrading. I don't consider Espinosa to be much of a downgrade from Kendrick who he will only out do in BA (Kendrick over Espy in that cat) Espi is a lock for a 25/25 season (think of him as a slightly unproven Kinsler) his BA will improve next year. I'd rather have Espinosa myself and his upside, Beachy easily over McCarthy, but losing 2 top end years from Pence? No thanks, pass.

I agree with this but I think Heyward can match Pence's numbers. Plus Heyward has the talent to be a top 5 OF where Pence will never be that.
