Trade Help! WHIR ASAP!

Postby ScrappyDawg » Tue Mar 27, 2012 9:29 pm

I am in a 10 team Head to Head 5 (OBP) x 5 Re-draft league. I managed to move Rollins and Strasburg for HanRam, which has left my pitching pretty thin. An owner has offered me the following trade of:

My Uggla/Alex Gordon for
His Ian Kennedy/BJ Upton/Neil Walker

How do you guys feel about this trade. I think it helps my pitching and speed deficit. Leave a link and I WHIR ASAP.







C - Jesus Montero. 1B - Joey Votto. 2B - Dan Uggla. 3B - Adrian Beltre. SS - Hanley Ramirez. OF - Justin Upton. OF - Alex Gordon. OF - Adam Jones. UTIL - Kendrys Morales
Bench - Jason Heyward, Ichiro Suzuki, Delmon Young, Ryan Doumit
SP - Tim Lincecum, Yu Darvish, Anibal Sanchez, Johan Santana, Justin Masterson
RP - Sean Marshall, Javy Guerra

Don't like it. But I'm very low on all 3 guys you're getting back. I don't think they'll bust necessarily but Kennedy feels like a regression candidate to me, Walker will have to get very lucky to go 15/15 (I wouldn't expect more than 10/10 with a so-so avg) and BJ Upton... well, he's the bane of many a fantasy owner's existence.

I'm ok with it. I am not a big Upton fan but if you can live with the BA then maybe I would do it. Upton will give you better numbers than Gordon except for the BA. Kennedy and Walker are at least as valuable as Uggla if not a win slightly for you.

I don't love this trade though and personally would look for something else.

i think you give away more than you get. decent 2b are hard to come by, and walker is no replacement for uggla. you have speed in hanley and upton, and i dont think you're desperate enough to give up uggla for more.

help with mine?
