Huge Keeper Trade: 4 top-10 players. ALL HELP RETURNED

Postby kaiser » Fri Aug 10, 2012 9:01 am

Leave a link for help returned.

10 team H2H (individual cats) keeper. Keep Five.

My current keepers for next year are Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, Joey Votto, Robinson Cano and ? (probably either Jay Bruce or Victor Martinez).

I have been offered my Dustin Pedroia and either Ryan Braun or Matt Kemp for my Miguel Cabrera and Robinson Cano.

Do you think that an upgrade from Cabrera to Braun or Kemp is worth the slight downgrade from Cano to Pedroia? Is Cabrera to Kemp/Braun an upgrade at all? Is Cano to Pedoria a downgrade?

Any help would be appreciated.

I dont see the value in doing this

downgrading at 2B (not majorly but still) and I mean all the other 3 are around top 5 guys. Braun and Kemp run more of course but its not worth the downgrade at 2B. Even if folks have that opinion that cano and pedroia are the same its just moving big chips around. Id like to see you get an interesting 3rd player upgrade or the like to make an easier call

And trust me if you like kemp or braun size-ably better than miggy, take the trade its a fair offer

I'd keep Cano and Miggy personally. Miggy is the best hitter in baseball and Cano is close. Don't get me wrong I love Kemp and Braun but I would rather have MIggy and Cano as my dynamic duo.

Pedroia + Braun < Miggy + Cano
Pedroia + Kemp < Miggy + Cano

No Deal.
