Kendrick/Dempster for Tabata/Johnson? WHIR

Postby MurrayKy » Mon Jul 16, 2012 12:20 pm

First off, here's my league settings and roster.

I'm in a 20-team H2H Cats dynasty where you keep 25 of 29, and start one of each position plus a util, 5 starting pitchers and 5 relievers.

Offense CATS: H, R, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, K, BB, SB, CS, AVG
Pitching CATS: ERA, K, BB, K/BB, WHIP, HRA, SV, HD, W, L

C. Ryan Doumit
1b. Adrian Gonzalez
2b. Howie Kendrick
3b. Kyle Seager
Ss. Asdrubal Cabrera
Lf. Desmond Jennings
Cf. Adam Jones
Rf. Hunter Pence
Util. Norichiki Aoki
Be. Jean Segura
Be. Cameron Maybin
Be. Alex Presley
Be. Jurickson Profar
Be. Hak-Ju Lee
Be. Miguel Sano
Be. Nick Castellanos
Be. Wilin Rosario
Dl. Victor Martinez
Dl. Evan Longoria

Sp. Yovani Gallardo
Sp. Jordan Zimmermann
Sp. Michael Fiers
Sp. Jameson Taillon
Sp. Ryan Dempster
Rp. Jordan Walden
Rp. Frank Francisco
Rp. Mike Adams
Rp. Darren Oliver
Rp. Joel Peralta
Be. Brian Matusz
Be. Taijuan Walker
Dl. Brandon McCarthy
Dl. John Danks

I've been shopping Dempster around, and was going after Johnson because he's a great buy-low right now, despite the injuries.

The guy offered me this; I really like getting Johnson because my pitching would look GREAT (Gallardo, Zimmermann, McCarthy, Johnson, Fiers/Danks) but I don't know if I can afford to get rid of Howie, which would leave me without a second baseman. I could put Seager there because he's eligible, but then I'd be left without a third baseman until Longo gets back.

Advice? Thanks guys.

Trade for Johnson. Kendrick is not having a great season (.277-5HR-32RBI) and JJ has more keeper upside than Dempster, who I can't see pitching gems every start for the rest of the season.

I presume you are talking about Josh Johnson. Dempster to Johnson is definitely an upgrade, but why would you open a hole in your lineup to do this? And you do know Tabata got sent down to AAA right? He isn't helping you any time soon. In fact, given your roster, I'm not sure you'd even keep him for next year.

What's the WW look like in the MIF? And what's his roster look like?

Yeah I didn't really consider Tabata to be anything. I was kinda planning on dropping him for someone like Nick Franklin or another prospect.

That's my main concern, whether it is worth it to have to get another second baseman to get Johnson.

And sorry but I have no idea what WW and MIF mean, haha.

I would do the trade man. Like others have been saying, dempster won't keep this up all year, and kendrick has already had his best season. Seager will produce the same amount as kendrick, you should get longo back in a month so as long as your in it a month from now, I believe you win this trade. Johnson's upside is too much to pass up. Help me please...

I know Dempster's not gonna be even remotely this good in the future, that's why I'm trying to deal him. And I know Johnson won't be this bad; he may be injured, but when healthy he's not this bad; hence, why I'm trying to get him.

I countered with Dempster and Aoki for Johnson, I'm gonna see what he does. He does need help in LF as Tabata is there now, so Aoki would do well there for him.

Any other opinions? Thanks everyone who already responded!

If I was to replace a second baseman, things aren't looking too good. It's a pretty deep league.

Sean Rodriguez, Ryan Raburn, Jamey Carroll, Tyler Greene and Maicer Izturis are the most-owned 2B in FA. It's pretty much like that for every position.

Like most of the others, I like this deal for you. Get Johnson. Dempster could get traded to the AL East and his numbers may go way up.

Okay, I offered him Kendrick and Dempster for Ackley and Johnson. If he doesn't accept, I'll just take the Tabata/Johnson deal.
