I just traded my Brandon Beachy, Dee Gordon, and Jason Kipnis for Starlin Castro and Ian Kinsler. I'm dominating the pitching categories and can use just a little bit more help on offense. I love the deal and I think it makes my team a bit more complete, I'm curious to hear other opinions.
If you're set in pitching then overall I like this trade. If it's a keeper..don't know that I give on Gordon just yet, but I think Castro is going to be pretty good himself. Definitely like the upgrade of Kinsler.
I think you dominated the trade. Starlin Castro has Dee Gordon's speed but can actually hit too, and he isn't being threatened with getting sent back to AAA. Kinsler is a major upgrade over Kipnis, and losing Beachy hurts but if you're dominating pitching I would value what you gain back in offense.
I'm quickly becoming a Dee Gordon hater...i drafted him 2 leagues to get me SB, and he hasn't even done that in more than 2 weeks. Also, I'm a Cubs fan, but Castro is proving he is legit and will be for several more years.
