pre-season trade, Kemp for draft picks? WHIR

Postby elsanteny » Mon Mar 04, 2013 12:12 pm

We keep 2 players from the previous season in a highly competitive H2H 12 team league. I have Kemp, Trout, and Heyward as possible keepers. I am tempted to keep Heyward over Kemp firstly because I have been offered a 1st rd pick for him. Second, with Kemp still recovering from a serious shoulder injury, and Heyward breaking out somewhat last season, I simply think Heyward is a better long term keeper (age) and may actually outperform Kemp this season. Breaks my heart to dump Kemp but w Heyward and the extra 1st rd'ers production, and the possibility to get younger without loosing much production, I see this as a shrewd move, my league not so much.
Is this trade worth the risk given the long term benefits?

With a first round pick coming back, I think it's a good deal.

I think its worth it for a first round pick. Having two first round picks in a league where only 24 guys are kept is nice.

I'd take Heyward and an extra first rounder for sure.

Ditto. Kemp has some inujury concerns, so keep Heyward and get yourself another 1st round pick.

I would have to agree, curious, what pick in the 1st would you get back?

With no other offers on the table I'd say this is a reasonable deal. I still think that Kemp will be the better player this year and next, but the difference is more than compensated with the 1st rounder.

Have you tried shopping Heyard as well (unless you rank him higher than Kemp)? He's valuable enough that I think you might be able to get a 1st rounder for him as well...maybe even from the guy who wanted Kemp (if his keepers are weak enough). If you take all the notes from this thread you might be able to convince him that Heyard is the better one to take anyway. :-D
