Postby kidsilk » Sat Feb 02, 2013 8:53 pm

30 team, dynasty league, I have the White Sox, 5x5 H2H.

I have been offered Cliff Lee and Coco Crisp for My Jeremy Hellickson and Desmond Jennings. Which pair would you rather have?

without seeing the rest of your team, it's hard to say. I'd probably pass- jennings upside is much better than crisp's.

Thats a tough one. Im tempted to go with the youth and upside of Hellboy and Jennings. Long term they should be the better combo. Jennings is head and shoulders better than Crisp. But is Hellickson going to get much better? Lee may contend for the Cy next year if he just gets some run support. so I guess it depends on whether you want a potential stud young hitter. Or a potential ace.

Sorry man. I wish that i could tell you something you didnt already know.

I believe I am hanging on to hellboy and Desmond in a dynasty league. Pretty decent trade as far as fair-wise

Depends how good your team is this year. I like the Lee/Crisp side more for 2012, but down the line the edge will probably go to Hellickson/Jennings. If you have a team that could win it all this year I'd probably do it.

Well I do have a very good team this year but not sure if I can win it or not. But, Lee and Crisp are probably a better pair over the next 2 seasons. I don't see Hellickson improving that much and Lee is a CY Young candidate year in and year out. The question mark is will Jennings live up to the hype? I see him and Crisp putting up similar numbers this year if Crisp can stay healthy but of course the edge goes to Jennings in the long term. So, basically, I have a team that can contend but I will have to get some breaks this year to win it. But, I plan on going for it this year and the next couple of seasons. Any other thoughts?

Depends. I am not sold on Hellickson or Jennings and Cliff Lee is 34 and still going strong. Crisp is not a factor. Comes down to whether you believe Hellickson and Jennins are going to be anything special. If not it is an easy call to take Cliff Lee.

Why would Crisp not be a factor?
