Hanson/Kuroda/Masterson for Kershaw? WHIR

Postby MaxMan715 » Thu Mar 15, 2012 1:50 pm

Would you consider this a fair trade? (The team that has Kershaw is very shallow in pitching depth).

My SPs:

Lester
Wainwright
Hanson
Kuroda
Masterson
Billingsley
E Jackson

His SPs:

Kershaw
Darvish
Cueto
Gee

In my opinion, this trade would solidify my rotation while balancing the other managers'

Any input would be appreciated.

No.

The Kershaw side is way more valuable. Hanson is a question mark. Kuroda and Masterson are meh.

I think if you want to land Kershaw, you'd best start out with Lester + a rebound candidate (Wainwright or Hanson) + a decent SP (Masterson or Jackson). That might satisfy his need for pitching and still leave you with enough.

I'd rather have Kershaw over them guys, and the 3 combined may not give you Kershaws numbers

This trade doesn't work. Kershaw is elite and if you want an elite player you generally have to give up an elite player or something very close. You can't trade a bunch of mid-tier starters and think you can get a top 3 player for them.

I think you should keep Kuroda and Billingsley, trade the rest for Kershaw and see if you can also pick up Randy Wolf and Broxton in a 3 way trade. =)

Like everyone else has said, you have no chance whatsoever at getting Kershaw, unless you package Lester AND Wainwright, and even then the Kershaw owner might not budge. And to be honest, I wouldn't blame him.

If you want to upgrade at pitching, trying looking at the waiver wire. I bet you there are some sleeper gems there that you could drop Billingsley/Jackson for.

Or, target a pitcher that isn't possibly going to be the best fantasy pitcher--maybe look outside the top 10.
