Hanley/Holland for Holliday/Kennedy

Postby BigBilly » Sun Aug 05, 2012 10:58 am

I have been offered Holliday and Kennedy for Hanley and Holland.. I am torn in this deal as I am in need of SP. I am sitting in 8 in a 16 team money league which pays out Top 6. I am Way behind in ERA and WHIP and could use another solid SP. We Keep 7 players and I will already be keeping 2 OF.

I will post my roster at the end, basically wondering if Holliday is worth Hanley for the Long term as I would most likely not be keeping Kennedy.

Thanks in advance

its not bad deal, but could be bad for you. what do you do at ss without hanley? and can you take the loss of quite possibly your best closer and being left with only two huge question marks?

Assuming this is a roto league, at this point in the season, I don't think adding SPs (even top ones) are going to make a huge dent in your ERA and WHIP. Think about it. At best, that pitcher probably has about 10 starts left and even one of the best pitchers (e.g. Verlander) will likely only impact your ERA by about 10 points and WhIP by about 5 points. Kennedy will do less. There was good article on ESPN.com about this just on Friday (should I trade for an ace?). Check it out. I like Hanley in keeper leagues more than Holliday too.

Help me?
