My Kemp for B. Lawrie and Halladay? Fair?

Postby sexyandcanoit » Mon Apr 16, 2012 3:11 pm

Is this a fair trade?

I give Matt Kemp for Brett Lawrie and Roy Halladay.
He offered Ethier and Halladay but I plan to counter with Lawrie instead.

12 Teams, H2H, no keepers, 5x5 (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, K, W, SV, ERA, WHIP)

My Team:
C Miguel Montero
1B Mark Teixeira
2B Brandon Phillips
3B Adrian Beltre
SS Ian Desmond
2B/SS J.J. Hardy
1B/3B Kyle Seager
OF Torii Hunter
OF Nick Markakis
OF Nick Swisher
OF Josh Willingham
OF Matt Kemp
UTIL Jemille Weeks
Bench Peter Bourjos
Bench Jordan Schafer

P Zack Greinke
P Matt Cain
P Joel Hanrahan
P Daniel Hudson
P Brandon Beachy
P Ervin Santana
P Daniel Bard
P Jonathan Broxton
P Hector Santiago
Bench Johan Santana
DL Drew Storen

I wouldn't do that. I think Kemp is an easy top 3 player and you've already got Beltre at 3B. Losing Kemp kills your OF and your pitching isn't so bad that you need this.

Not a chance. With the way Kemp is hitting the ball, I am not sure there is a guy I would trade Kemp for right now. Most though Kemp could take a step back a little but at this rate he very well might repeat and actually go 40/40.

Absolutely not! I have Kemp and this guy is basically like a god right now! I can understand since he is doing so well you may want to RISK getting rid of him at his peak. But who knows this guys peak he is a freak! I wouldn't take the risk, and if you want to I would want way more.......

Help Please.....

Fair? Yes. Would I do it? No. I know the adage is to "sell high" but there isn't much that I would give Kemp up for.

You'd have to put up another top 50 player before I even thought about trading Kemp for Lawrie and Halladay.

I think this is the key. I wouldnt deal the best fantasy player in baseball..plus the fact you weaken your OF and have Beltre. Do deal.
