Kinsler Bourn vs Pence Phillips

Postby Jase44 » Thu Apr 26, 2012 9:19 am

Keeper (10) Cats - R, 2b, HR, AVG, OPS, BB, SB, RBI

C- J. Montero
1 - Hosmer
2 - Kinsler
3 - ARam
SS - A.Cabrera
OF - Heyward
OF - Bourn
OF - Joyce
OF - A.Jackson
BN - Kipnis, Desmond, Reynolds, Scott
DL - C.Young, Morse, Quentin

Offer is my Kinsler + Bourn for his Phillips + Pence

At first glance I thought no, but after looking at it with our stats I get more HR, RBI, slightly better AVG and OPS and lose maybe a little bit on runs and a lot on SB.

Not sure what to think now, I HATE getting rid of the best player in the deal (Kinsler) but it's not a bad offer.

Thoughts?

No way. Hold on to 2012 AL MVP Ian Kinsler. Studs are more important in 10 team leagues.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

i honestly dont even think its close.

Kinsler is becoming a stud in this league, while phillips is been on a major decline the last couple of years, phillips is one tough SOB playing through injury after injury but sooner or latter they are going to catch up to him.

Pence is in a weak lineup right now and has a lot of pressure on him to carrying the lineup untill howard gets back, i can see this making him struggle for a while.
Meanwhile bourn is leading off in a great young lineup and will get you a lot of steals and Runs.

I strongly prefer Kinsler and Bourn.

Phillips is nothing special, and Pence is good but not great.

Kinsler for both pence and phillips would be fair. but i wouldnt dare do that trade.

i would try and move for a 3B if I were you. i wouldnt dare move hosmer, heyward, kinsler, or bourn
