Jay Bruce for Ian Kennedy? Good for me? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Tue Apr 17, 2012 10:50 am

I am in a 12-team H2H Keeper league (6-6) and have been looking for another quality starter since the season started. I spoke to another manager who's looking for an extra OF, and have asked him what he thinks about Bruce for his Kennedy.

Would this trade be good for my team? Am I giving up too much? I feel like Bruce is expendable with D Young and Morales on the bench.

Roster:

C - M Montero
1st - Goldscmidt
2nd - Kinsler
3rd - Lawrie
SS - Castro
OF - Kemp
OF - Bruce
OF - Ethier
Util - Ortiz

Bench: D Young, Morales

SPs:

Lester
Hanson
Wainwright
Kuroda
Masterson
Bard

RPs:

Bell
Capps
Broxton
Aceves

Holland
Casilla

I would not give up Jay Bruce to get Ian Kennedy. Kennedy is a solid SP, but the upside on Bruce's big bat is worth more.

i think its always easier to get a good pitcher off waivers than a bat. i usually just get hot pitcher and ride him then get another one

jay bruce is legit 25 HR power and he hit 32 last year and who knows what his ceiling is this year. kennedy is coming off a break out year, but only one year. if i ever trade a potential HR bat i'd like a pitcher with longer track record.

if you think youre solid in HR and RBIs and you like kennedy entering his prime then go for it
please help with my team! WHIR!

I would not do this trade. Kennedy is good, not great, and I think Bruce has the potential to be a top outfielder this season. Already off to a hot start.
