(Kemp or Hamilton) + Dickey for my Votto + Valverde

Postby KaPluie » Thu May 24, 2012 11:19 am

Been offered (Kemp or Hamilton) + Dickey for my Votto + Valverde.
Should I go for it? If so, who between Kemp or Hamilton?
This will leave me with zero closers, but the closerpocolypse hit most of my closers, so I'm going with a SP heavy staff right now. Valverde was really just to keep the other guy honest.

Man this is a tough one, all throw my Ranger bias aside as much as I can.

It's hard because you got Kemp on the DL and Hamilton healthy. Career-wise Kemp is always healthier but Hamilton is crushing it this year and unfortunately he is looking at free agency. Since you have Teixshhhhhead (hate him but I'll throw out the bias) I would make this deal and punt saves, just got to decide between those 2 guys and since Josh is on an AL team, in a great hitters park and a upcoming FA, I'd go with Josh

Definetly do this trade but the question is who do you take between Kemp and Hamilton...Looking at your roster I would take Kemp. He gives you stolen bases along with everything else. I know he is on the DL but he is due back and he claimed he was healthy when he went out. If you had bag stealers already on your team I would lean towards Hamilton. But I think I would go with Kemp. Good luck,

My bag stealer is Cameron Maybin, but it would be nice to wrap up a slugger with a bag stealer.

I'm personally a big Kemp fan here... not in the fan sense but in the fantasy sense. Hamilton has his physical ailments so I'd take the all-around guy.

Yeah, this is tough. I'd make the deal for Kemp.

Eh, if Tex were hitting, I'd jump all over this deal for Kemp if you'll remember is a top 3 talent AND on top of that you need an OF, however, you don't really have a reliable replacement for Votto. If you had a Konerko, Fielder, Miggy Cab, Freeman someone like that OR if Tex were playing up to his standards I'd do it, but he isn't and I'd pass. Yes Tex will come around (2nd half player...) but he's trending in the wrong direction and its being going on beyond this year.
