CC and Pablo for Kershaw?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Tue Mar 06, 2012 10:24 pm

6x6 H2H league, 10 teams, 19 man rosters, up to 6 keepers per year. If you don't keep up to 6 you get a first round then second round pick, etc, before the others who kept 6. Does that make sense?:)

I have been offered CC and Pablo for my Kershaw.

Here is my roster and who would be my 6 keepers and would they be better before or after the trade?

C-Olivo
1B-Pujols
2B-Phillips
SS-Hanley
3B-Aramis
LF-Abreu
CF-McCutchen
RF-Werth
U-Stanton
U-Morrison
BN-Smoak

SP-Kershaw
SP-Price
SP-Hellickson
RP-Valverde
RP-Cordero
P-Feliz
BN-Billingsley
BN-Tabata

He also has Ellsbury, Pedroia, and Jennings that I would be interested in. Any thoughts?

I'd say keep Pujols, Hanley, McCutchen, Kershaw, Stanton and Price.

I wouldn't do the deal, because keeping Kershaw and Price is better than keeping CC and Pablo. But maybe if you could take out Kershaw and throw Hellickson plus something, that would work a lot better. Because of Hellickson being due for regression and all.

Very, very tough.

My opinions will prove to be unpopular, but here goes. CC is a stud. He's aging but he's consistent. As Sporting News says, he had a great year last year and was even unlucky.

I know he's sturdy but I get a feeling the train may slow down. (I have no reason for this except my opinion)

And A-Ram and Pablo are ranked pretty even for this season. You would be getting a littler better and much younger, but Kershaw is just awesome.

I'm a big believer in taking hitting over pitching. But from my years of playing, if you have a top-flight ace (especially a very young ace) you can ride those guys to championships based on their differentials.

I think if you make this trade you improve for the short term. If this league is shaky and may "fold" then I would consider it but if this is a long-term league I would keep the young ace.

;-D Agreed no reason to do this deal.

1B-Pujols
SS-Hanley
CF-McCutchen
U-Stanton
SP-Kershaw
SP-Price

I'd assume that you could redraft Aramis or a better 3B option with your 7th (1st) round pick

Tough call. I see you can now keep 7 v. the original 6 stated. First, you may want to go in an edit the original post because I don't believe some of the fellas saw that 7v6.

Ok, I like Panda. Is this a long term keeper league? If so, maybe stay with Kershaw. If not, maybe make the deal. But then again you gain a 1st rd pick with only 6.

All in all, you are not going to make a bad decision on this one. Not much help when I reread my position. Sorry!
