Big trade guys, need lots of help! WHIR

Postby bpizle » Sun Mar 25, 2012 7:38 pm

Hey guys, been trying to work out a deal with the same guy for a while now, he isn't leaving me alone on trying to get Howie Kendrick and keeps throwing deals at me. His latest deal is My Alex Gordon/Kendrick for Ian Kennedy. Its a seriously pitcher heavy league, and I am short on pitching depth other than Halladay, but is it worth giving up two starters? I know Ian Kennedy is the best player in the deal, which is 1 positive to take from it, and I do have some bench depth to throw in there including starting Ackley at 2b instead of Kendrick. But what do you guys think? Scoring and roster info below!

I think the deal is close but I would try and get one more player from him. Maybe someone he doesn't value as much as he should. Hard to say without knowing his roster. But if the guy really wants a player than make him pay for that player.

With Cuddyer. ;-D

I dont think Kendrick for Kennedy is too far off in itself.

Ya, you are giving up to much, even if the league is pitching heavy. Try to find out another person from his team he can through in that makes sense. He is trying to get kendrick for the cheap from you because he knows you dont have to use him. Dont let him do that.

no way. you're giving up way too much. if he wants to give up a starting pitcher for those two i would want a top 5 pitcher in return, if not more. i would be hesitant to even trade gordon for kennedy straight up. i would also start kendrick over ackley, but that's just me. if he wants a 2-1 deal for kennedy, i'd offer him berkman and kelly johnson.
