Trade Votto for Kemp? (Roto, keeper league)

Postby FooteNasty » Sun Jul 01, 2012 5:11 pm

So a guy in my league wants Joey Votto from me. He offered Adrian Gonzalez in a package including a few other lesser players. The only person I would think to trade for would be Matt Kemp. Should I go for a Votto for Kemp and Adrian Gonzalez, since Gonzalez is having a WAY off year and Kemp is injured? Or should i just bite my lip and keep Votto? I don't normally do trades at all, not much of a risk taker, mostly add to my roster through free agents throughout the year. Any advice? I put my roster below in case it helps anyone:

C - Joe Mauer
C - Carlos Ruiz
1B - Joey Votto
1B - Billy Butler
2B - Michael Young
2B - Daniel Murphy
3B - Kevin Youklis
3B - Brett Lawrie
SS - Jimmy Rollins
SS - Jed Lowrie
OF - Adam Jones
OF - Josh Willingham
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
OF - Austin Jackson
OF - Nick Swisher
OF - Brandon Belt
DH - Freddie Freeman
DH - Jim Thome

Bench - AJ Ellis (C), Anthony Rizzo (1B), Lonnie Chisenhall (3B) ,Stephen Drew (SS), Dee Gordon (SS), Matt Joyce (OF)

SP - Ian Kennedy
SP - Chris Capuano
SP - Yovanni Gallardo
SP - Edwin Jackson
SP - Kyle Lohse
RP - Jonathan Broxton
RP - Joe Nathan
RP - Felix Doubront
RP - Vance Worley

Bench - Tim Hudson (SP), Hiroki Kuroda (SP), Justin Masterson (SP), Brandon Morrow (SP), Jeff Samardzija (RP), Drew Storen (RP)

There aren't many players I'd trade Votto for, but Kemp is one of them. You might be able to get him to bite since Kemp is (technically) hurt, so give it a shot with A-Gone. I do think that's a pretty good get for Votto.

Yea but AGone has done NOTHING much except hit a little bit. HIs power production is nonexistant. You want top notch production from 1b. Pass.
