Cain is a top 4 round player, top 5-8 SP in all fantasy and only 28 years old. Kipnis has played well for 3 months and does not have anything close to that track record.
Imo, you should try to unload Mauer while you can\while he is healthy and hitting for avg (which is really all he does). One of the most overrated players in fantasy imo. 4Hrs, 36 rbis, 38 runs and 4 Sbs at the halfway mark is nothing special, even for a C and esp. for one in a 1 C league. Those numbers save for the avg can be replaced off the wire.
I hear ya, but by no means would putting Mauer in that trade make it any better... I actually just acquired Mauer and Joe Nathan in a trade for Ryan Howard and Brian McCann.
If you expoliate Kipnis for the entire year he could be a .280 hitter with 25 bombs, 90 runs and rbis, and 35 sbs... out of a 2nd year 2nd basemen that's not bad. That's why I worry about trading him for a pitcher.
Any other ideas of how I could get Cain from him for anyone other than Castro, Braun or Kemp?
