Choo for Kipnis? WHIR

Postby mrbohjangles » Wed Apr 25, 2012 2:25 pm

Give: Shin-Soo Choo
Get: Jason Kipnis

Should I do this trade? I feel like 2nd base is my weakest position.

I'm not a big Choo guy, but you're selling him short here. I would not do this. Why not dangle Cespedes out there and see what you could get?

Like this, Cespedes will probably be able to get you this if you're lucky.

I wouldn't do this, like the poster above, you're selling short.

I wouldn't be that uncomfortable with Weeks who you have on your bench.

To be quite honest, I'm much higher on Cespedes than I am Choo. I think at worst Cespedes is a 20-20 guy, whereas Choo is 20-20 at best, and that is assuming he doesn't end up hurt again. My question is, why isn't anyone else projecting these kind of numbers from Cespedes? I understand he might do this with a .250 avg, but if he gets me between 25-30 dingers with 18-23 steals, I'm stoked. Plus, I think that would be more valuable than Choo with a .275/18/15 line.

I think you'll be lucky to get a .250 average out of Cespedes. He's already striking out a lot. Once the league adjusts to him it's going to get pretty ugly with the whiffs. A .275 average out of Choo is his floor.

I just realized that the dude with Kipnis has Brandon Phillips on his bench. Choo for Phillips? Should I throw that at him?
