Kipnis for Lawrie?

Postby colt4523 » Sat Dec 29, 2012 4:05 pm

I am considering offering my Kipnis for Lawrie. 12 team AL only 6x6 with xbh and holds, $260 cap. Both Kipnis and Lawrie will be $5 next year. Was thinking about doing this then draft Altuve at 2b. We keep 8 players. My current keepers are:

Trout 5
Kipnis 5
Iwakuma 3
Moore 5
Astrubal 19
Hunter 16
Reed 14
Brantley 7

Was also going to attempt to get Encarnacion at 7 but I doubt I can get him.

I would take Lawrie slightly over Kipnis. What 3B would be available in the draft though? Not sold on Altuve being a starter for your team so if there is better 3B to draft then I would keep Kipnis.

3b is extremely shallow in the AL. I am probably looking at Youk and Reynolds being the best options at 3b. 2b not much better, pedroia should be there (he is on my team but at 44) and Altuve.

Lawrie for me as well. Altuve won't kill you in an AL only league.

Do the deal. Lawrie will cover a good portion of the speed Kipnis provides and has the other tools to contribute across the board.

I believe there is nothing wrong with Altuve in AL only leagues this year.

Nice plan

Looks like I might just get EE instead. He is only $9. Better deal right?
