Kinsler for Beachy + Kipnis?

Postby bayside » Wed May 16, 2012 2:55 am

10 team h2h Keeper league:
i just managed to trade Ackley + Broxton to get Kipnis from an owner who was desperate for saves and has Cano as his starting 2b.

Then another owner immediately offers me Kinsler for Beachy + Kipnis...
so basically Beachy/Brox/Ackley for Kinsler...
do i need to snappity snap accept this one and feel great about getting a top 3 2b without giving up any elite talent??

not sure if it even matters since im currently in 2nd overall and am basically a lock for playoff spot, but:
Kipnis can be kept in the 18th rd next year.
Beachy in the 8th.
Kinsler becomes a 1st rounder, but league rules stipulate i would have to cut him next yr if I want to keep my current 1st rounder, MCab.

intersting SP available on the wire are Bass, Volquez, Miley, EJax

If you think you can handle the loss of a SP, then I think you should make this deal.

i would counter with moore/marshall/kipnis for kinsler.

idk how your keeper situation is, but if beachy is on your keeper radar and is a good price your going to be upset with letting him go.

Kipnis is a Kinsleresque player, and the difference between the two is less than Beachy. Counter with a lesser pitcher, or pass on the deal.
Goldy is King.

I still have the offer open.
I mentioned it in the OP but I can keep Kipnis in the 18th rd and Beachy in the 8th if i choose to keep either.
Kinsler will become a 1st rounder and I would 100% cut/trade him this off season unless MCab suffers some career ending injury.
Im allowed to keep up to 8 players, only 5 of which may be from rounds 1-10.

Leaning towards not making this move now because Kipnis seems like an 85% version of Kinsler, and Beachy is worth at least a half of a Kinsler himself
