Lawrie For Jansen? Also Kuroda... Always WHIR

Postby HoneyNutIchiros11 » Fri Aug 10, 2012 12:15 pm

I was talking to a friend in my league yesterday and he mentioned how he'd potentially trade Kenley Jansen for my Brett Lawrie.

Is this a good deal? I get to fill my empty RP spot on my roster, and he gets to swap Votto out for Lawrie on his DL.

Also, he said how he'd pick up Kuroda if I were to drop him, so I'm thinking if he wants Kuroda I'm going to have to make him pay for it. I'd like to get one of Kershaw, Kinsler or Votto off of him if I add more to Lawrie for Jansen, I just don't know who else I'd have to offer with Kuroda to get one of those three guys.

My roster:
8 Team Head-to-Head Yahoo League- R,H,HR,RBI,SB,K,E,XBH,IP,W,SV,K,ERA
C-Mauer(1B)
1B-Encarnation(3B)
2B-Kipnis
3B-D. Wright
SS-Rutledge
OF-Kemp
OF-Braun
OF-Holliday
Utility-LaRoche(1B)
Utility-Pedroia(2B)
Bench-Lawrie(3B)(DL)
DL-Desmond(SS)
SP-Weaver
SP-Strasburg
SP-Wainwright
SP-Shields
RP-Motte
RP-n/a
Bench-Lohse
Bench-Kuroda
DL-Morrow

His roster:
C-Pierzynski
1B-Konerko
2B-Kinsler
3B-Seager(2B,3B,SS)
SS-Castro
OF-Hamilton
OF-Bourn
OF-Willingham
Utility-Hill(2B)
Utility-Kubel(OF)
DL-Votto(1B)
SP-Kershaw
SP-Cain
SP-Peavy
SP-McDonald
RP-Chapman
RP-Jansen
Bench-Dempster(SP)
Bench-Liriano(SP,RP)

Any help would be appreciated!

If this is a non-keeper league I would do it.
No reason to have an empty roster spot. Just hurts you in head-to-head
And you are trading a DL spot for depth to strength.
Of the three, you need Kershaw the most with Strasburg's inn limit. No way you get him though for just Kuroda. I hate to say it, but I don't see the depth on your team to make this trade though.

He backed out of the deal now, said Lawrie is garbage even though hed be bringing back a much better DL player instead. He also thinks Francisco Liriano is one of the best pitchers in the league so I just take what he says with a grain of salt :-b

I was thinking of packaging Strasburg and Kuroda for a pitcher like Kershaw or another higher end guy, do you have any other possible SP that those two could get me?

It's a 1 year league too, so non-keeper
