Big Trade...Kershaw for CarGo...WHIR

Postby CDAG02 » Sun Jul 01, 2012 10:35 pm

I've been offered Kershaw for CarGo. I really need SP but hate to lose a bat like CarGo. Is this a good deal for me? Can I afford to lose a bat like that or should I go after someone like Greinke/Cliff Lee with Upton?

I would hang onto Cargo. A valuable bat is better than a valuable pitcher. I think Upton for Lee or Greinke is closer but I would still hang tight.
help me please?

Pitchers are a lot riskier. TJ can come at any point hitters dont have a devastating injury like that to a career. Hitters are always the safer bet. Keep Cargo

I would want to keep Cargo in this deal... maybe try and use Upton if you really want a top tier pitcher.

I don't know if this as open and shut as people are saying. When Kemp comes back you'll have to move Craig to the bench. That's throwing away stats when you have weaknesses at pitcher. I think I'd make this trade, I'm in a similar situation in my league where my offense is stacked and I'm leaving a lot of stats on the bench and can't find anybody who will give up a Kershaw, Verlander or Strasburg for my Cabrera or Bautista. Honestly, I think I'd take this trade.

You have the depth with Kemp, Craig and even Arod. I would look to snag another arm but not one quite as dominant as Kershaw. You have a good staff. I wouldn't shoot for the moon. Try to get a lesser quality but good SP instead.

Upton for Greinke or even Kersh I'd sign off on that. Not Lee, his team just is in shambles and even at full strength not enough trust there.
