Postby The_Met_Threat » Sun Mar 11, 2012 8:03 pm

5x5 (k/9 instead of k's), standard positions, H2H, 14 teamer, keep 6

Would you trade Kemp and Weaver for A Gonzalez and Felix Hernandez?

Keepers are:
Kemp
Votto
Cargo
Pedroia
Andrus
Weaver

Draft is tonight so help me out.

Thanks

No. Difference between Kemp and agonz is bigger than the difference between weaver and Felix. Its at best a lateral move and with votto already I don't see the point.

Agreed. Also, Felix has that horrible offense behind him and struggles majorly to get W's. I don't think Weaver will have quite as much trouble in that category.

(And yes, I know chasing W's usually isn't a great idea, but when the talent is that close, it matters)

NO.
Kemp is better than A-Gonz and I would prefer Weaver to King Felix.

Gotta stick. Have Votto already so you might as well roll with the elite OF too.

Weaver better then Felix?
Career xFIP
Felix 3.31
Weaver 4.06

Kemp is the best guy no doubt, but Felix over Weaver is pretty big imo.
I guess i'm the only person who makes this deal.

And during none of those three years did Weaver have Pujols' huge bat helping provide run support for him. Felix is clearly the better overall pitcher, but he's just saddled with that horrible Seattle lumber.

Besides, I'll take Kemp's 5-category production over Adrian's 4-categories everytime anyway.
