Here's a biggie.. MATT KEMP?

Postby BabySitler » Thu Apr 26, 2012 3:13 am

I have Matt Kemp --- the first pick in the draft. In a straight Rotisserie style (not head-to-head) league, I've been offered Jose Batista, Ben Zobrist and Cliff Lee for him. Keep in mind it is a keeper league, but, man, this is the guy's first offer. What do ya think?

I would ask for more. Kemp looks like he could actually go 50/50 like he said he would. You're giving up the best player in baseball for 2 guys who are off to a slow start and one on the DL. You can do better for Kemp imo.

Don't know your league or team, but I would do this deal no questions asked.

Definitely depends on your team for straight up roto. Who is Ben Zobrist and Cliff Lee going to replace? I'm inclined to say yes though, even though Kemp is roto gold.

One player who has outproduced both of those bats (Jose and Zobrist) combined in 5/5 roto stats. I guess if you need the pitching that bad get a 2nd SP instead of Zobrist. I still wouldn't do it though. I think Kemp is going to give a lot of owners titles this season.

I wouldn't do this. Eventhough for this season it would definitely help you out. Kemp has too much value as a keeper, even though he is going to cool off inevitably. The only way I would trade him is if I'm getting someone like J Upton, Cabrera, or Braun in the deal.

I appreciate all the responses and will reply with my team. I'm currently in second place in a 14-team straight Roto league, and it's the first year of a keeper league. We have to keep 8 entering next year.

We start two Catchers and it's a daily lineup league:

C: Alex Avila
C: Jesus Montero
1B: Eric Hosmer
2B: Neil Walker
SS: Hanley Ramirez
3B: Brett Lawrie
CI: Justin Morneau (picked up off waivers before Yankees series)
MI: Jason Kipnis
OF: Matt Kemp
OF: Angel Pagan
OF: Andrew McCutchen
OF: Raul Ibanez
OF: Eric Thames
Utility: Mark Trumbo
Bench: Dayan Viciedo
Bench: Chris Iannetta
Bench: Omar Infante
Bench: Mike Trout

SP: Ian Kennedy
SP: Adam Wainwright
RP: Jason Motte
RP: Javy Guerra
P: Santiago Casilla
P: Matt Cain
P: Fernando Rodney
P: Ivan Nova
Bench: Clay Buchholz
Bench: Brandon McCarthy
Bench: Andy Pettitte
Bench: Mat Latos
DL: Michael Pineda

I would likely be dropping Kemp, obviously, Dayan Viciedo and Clay Buchholz for Jose Bautista, Ben Zobrist and Cliff Lee being offered. He also has Paul Konerko, but Zobrist has multiple position eligibility already at 2B and OF.

I would still do it. You get an ace in Lee, and buying low on Zobrist and Bautista.

It's safe to drop Pineda by the way :)
