Fielder for Kipnis AL ONLY whir

Postby colt4523 » Sun Jun 03, 2012 10:11 am

Looks like my team is going to have a hard time competing this year so I am looking to dump salary. I have been offed Kipnis at $3 for my Fielder at $65. I do have Zobrist at $27 but could move him to the outfield. 12 team AL ONLY league 6x6 with xbh and holds. Should I pull the trigger? Ask for more? thoughts

Seems like a good deal if you are trying are working towards next year. How much will Kipnis jump in salary for next year?

One other thought though is maybe going after Hosmer or Lawrie instead. I like Kipnis a lot but I don't think he has the upside that the other two have. I would assume they are pretty cheap and could be had with their major struggles so far this year.

we just add $2 bucks to their auction price so he would just be $5. Hosmer and Lawrie are also the same price. I do have moustakas already and the team with Hosmer is in a rebuilding phase too?

I love that. Kipnis has a great future and present and the difference in salary is well worth it even if he drops off.

I like the trade but see if you can squeeze another player out of it. If not, take Kipnis and run to the bank.

Its a pretty good deal, but I think you could get a little more for Fielder. So see if you can squeeze a little more out of him.

What's your salary cap? Deal sounds good either way.

It's a good deal, but try to squeeze out a bit more. Just don't jeopardize the current deal if the other owner is touchy.
