Who should I get rid of: McCutch, A.Jones, Berkman, CarGo?

Postby raligula » Wed May 02, 2012 8:46 pm

I have too many OFers.
When Berkman comes back, I will need to get rid of one.
I'm thinking of just dropping Adam Jones because in my shallow league he doesn't have any trade worth.
Or instead I can package CarGo with Zobrist in a trade to upgrade at 2B?
In this strategy, I'm targeting Ian Kinsler.
Any thoughts/ideas?

Thanks (WHIR)

Do not drop Adam Jones. He is breaking out this year.

Either drop Berkman, or the upgrade at 2B isn't bad either.

Berkman. The others are too vital for me.

I like the idea of packaging Gonzalez and Zobrist, but I'd be expecting an awesome 2nd baseman in return. Who would you be targeting?

Ian Kinsler.
Perhaps Cano, but his owner is too attached.

I think Kinsler is a good move. Gonzalez is really on a tear right now, so I'd be pretty reluctant to give him up, but you'll still have a nice outfield and a top tier second baseman. See what the owner says.

Thanks for the help with mine.

I think a one for one trade would benefit you extremely. Especially, if it's Kinsler. Although CarGo might be slightly better than him, you'd be losing potential numbers if you stuck with Zobrist in your starting 2B spot. If he's hesitant to do a one for one, then throw in Adam Jones or Zobrist.
