Kinsler/Drabek for Haren/Lester/DeeGordon

Postby Billy_Ripken » Mon Jun 04, 2012 6:59 pm

12 team 5x5 non-keeper. I'd be getting the Kinsler side. Drabek is a throwaway....might try to upgrade a little there, but not too concerned about it. Would need to find new SP off waivers and slide Frieri or Bell into starting lineup. My pitching staff is middle of the pack, but I've made deals recently to upgrade it. Current Staff:
1 Hamels
2 Greinke
3 HAREN
4 Wainwright
5 LESTER
6 D. Hudson
7 Sale
8 Kenley Jansen
9 Chris Perez
BN Frieri, Bell, Santos

Think I have a strong enough staff to lose Haren and Lester? And is it worth the offensive upgrade? Here's my offense?

C J. Montero
1 Konerko
2 Uggla
3 Longoria
SS Aviles
CI Lawrie
MI Dee Gordon
OF Adam Jones
OF Jennings
OF Allen Craig
OF Dirks
OF Brantley
U Matt Adams
BN Kubel, Boesch, Aybar

Thanks and leave a link so I can WHIR

I am not a big fan of kinsler first off. I would definatly pass on this deal because first of dan uggla is a very good option for you at 2b and to be giving up that much SP isnt worth it. You have an elite SP right now i wouldnt change that for kinsler when you already have uggla there

Thanks for reply. Does it matter that Uggla wouldn't be getting replaced? Kinsler would actually slide into the MI spot that Dee Gordon currently occupies. Gordon is frustrating to own (especially when he's not stealing) and I'm planning to use my OF5 or Util spot to play a flavor-of-the-week cheap source of SB's.

You give up some good pitching and I'd like to see you get better than Drabek here, but it's still a nice grab in Kinsler. I'd try a bit to see if he can upgrade Drabek first before accepting.

Uggla is a stud. I am not real impressed by kinsler. Plus you give up two stud pitchers for one so so. Definately pass that up
