I'm not too please with the start Brandon Philips has put forward. I grabbed Kelly Johnson for at least the next week (Weekly line changes) but should I be shopping him around or just bench him until he heats up?

EDIT: So i offered Philips and Victorino for Kipnis and BJ Upton. What do you think?

If you are confident that KJ can sustain you for the remainder of the year, then it can't hurt to shop him and see if you can get someone to give you good value. Worst comes to worst you still have him on the bench, but it can't hurt to gauge the market.

Thoughts?

Well right now I'm planning on packaging Philips with an OF like Victorino for someone like Kipnis or Avilies and then try and get something good for Johnson who is rated currently rated as the 5th best 2nd basemen so I should get something for him somewhere.

Grab KJ quick off waivers but he will kill your BA.
Victorino AND KJ for Kipnis is TOO much.
Vic needs to get you a Kinsler or Peds
POST EDIT TRADE OFFER IS MUCH BETTER!

Sorry I wasn't too clear.

I grabbed KJ to play for Philips while he sits on my bench.

Im trying to get a deal for Philips while packaging him with Victorino. I can get Kipnis out of the deal, after which I will be able to shop KJ around as I won't have space on my team if Kipnis keeps his year up.

It is a pretty fair trade in my opinion. I like Kipnis. Not a huge BJ Upton fan. You might be able to get a little more value out of the other owner. I don't think you are getting quite enough in return.

That trade is bad.

Victorino > Upton and Phillips and Kipnis are close, with Phillips having the track record.

If you are trading Victorino in the deal you need to do better than Upton.
