Can I add value to my keepers?? Drop date is tonight!!

Postby Jase44 » Fri Mar 09, 2012 11:51 am

Another manager, actually my brother, really wants Kinsler (who I just traded for this morning). He is willing to give up just about anything as long as it benefits both sides. So the question is, can I trade Kinsler and add value to my team keeping in mind I can still only protect 10 guys.

Roto Keeper (10) - final roster is 22
Hitting - R 2B HR RBI AVG SB BB OPS
Pitching - W K SV ERA WHIP

My Team:
C - Jesus Montero
1B - Hosmer
2B - Kinsler
SS - A.Cabrera
3B - A. Ramirez
OF - Bourn
OF - Morse
OF - Heyward
SP- Price
SP - Pineda

His Team:
C - Santana
1B - Votto
2B - M.Young
SS - Castro
3B - Sandoval
OF - McCutchen
OF - Stanton
OF - Holliday
SP- Bumgarner
SP - Wainwright

There is one more starting OF and Util position plus a load of BN spots. Pitchers won't be part of the deal, should also mention that I do have Kendrick as an option until midnight tonight who I don't mind protecting at 2B if I get enough value added in other positions.

Any recommendations?

Who does he have that he is willing to trade? Is he willing to overpay? That is the only way I would trade him because after looking at your roster I think you need him.

please help

Yep, need to know who you might want from his team to know whether it will help you out to trade Kinsler.

You are in a 10 team league, correct?

If so, I would be looking to deal Kinsler in a 1 for 2 player deal. The reason is that I am not a fan of keeping either Pineda or Montero as a keeper in a 10 team league. I know most people are going nuts over Pineda, but I want to see him pitch effectively in Yankee Stadium before I'd keep him. He only has two pitches and gave up more HRs to left handed batters. The new park won't help him there. Montero looks decent, but I'm not keeping a catcher in a 10 team league (unless it is Carlos Santana). So I would be looking to land almost any combination of 2 players from his list for Kinsler. Bumgarner + McCutchen/Stanton for Kinsler + Pineda looks like a good deal.

Or maybe a player swap at certain positions- Santana + Young + Holliday/Stanton/McCutchen for Montero + Kinsler + Heyward. Something of the like to take away some injury risk and upgrade Montero or Pineda.

Kinsler is going to be very valuable with your league's extra hitting categories (BB + OPS).

We'll see if he makes an offer but I am also content staying staus quo until after the draft then we might be able to strike up a deal.

I got Kinsler for Utley + a 1st round pick (110th overall) and I still have another 1st rounder in store so that was a steal for me :)

Assuming that he stays healthy. I am seeing a lot of people jumping on the Kinsler bandwagon but the guy has only one season where he played 140+ games. I would not count on him to stay healthy.

If you could do it straight up for Votto, I would do it. I know it leaves you without a 2B keeper but you will be able to find something in the draft or trade for one later on.
