A few trade questions based around Cruz and Kendrys

Postby pjtroy34 » Fri May 18, 2012 11:28 pm

12team, H2H weekly 6x6 roto; additional cats of BB-KO hitting, L, SV+HD.
Can keep 10 players, move up 2 rounds from the previous year.

Luebke's injury and Moore's overall crappiness have left me very shorthanded in pitching. I've been starting 3 or even 4 relievers every week.
I like Kendrys as a long term play, but at this point he's a dead roster spot (due to Votto and my belief in Hosmer).
In all these scenarios, Kendrys is the only keeper possibility unless Lowrie shows something.

Two teams are somewhat interested in Cruz...additional category of BB-KO makes me want to cut bait.
Team 1 - may be able to get Lester OR a combo of Dempster and Tim Hudson. I may have to throw in Kendrys, who can be kept in the 18th round next year.
Team 2 - may be able to get Andrus...he's actually thinking he may want Reddick instead, but regardless...it may end up being Lowrie and Cruz for Andrus. He also has Detwiler, McCarthy, and Floyd who are somewhat intriguing.

One owner wants Kendrys:
Kendrys for Scherzer...I've been wanting to buy low and then he completely craps the bed in his last start...anyone nervous?

Any thoughts?

I would be find doing the Cruz for Lester deal. I don't love the deal but don't think Cruz stays healthy all year and you could use the SP. I would be fine throwing in Kendrys but it limits you trading in the other offers.

I would push to deal Reddick for Andrus. Even if you throw in Lowrie. This would be a great deal for you.

I would also be ok dealing Kendrys for Scherzer. I think Scherzer can be a solid SP but he is going to be inconsistent. It is just the way he is. And I am by no means sold that he has figured something out but dealing Kendrys for him is still pretty good value.
