Trade away Latos + Ichiro for I. Kennedy + M. Cabrera??

Postby zman3599 » Thu Mar 21, 2013 1:43 am

Hey guys, would greatly appreciate the help on a trade
I am in a 8 team H2H points league:

scoring :
Batting:
Total Bases (TB) 1 Walks (BB ) 1
Runs Scored (R ) 1 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1
Stolen Bases (SB) 1 Strikeouts (K) -1

Pitching:
Innings Pitched (IP) 3 Earned Runs (ER) -2
Wins (W) 5 Losses (L) -5
Saves (SV) 5 Strikeouts (K) 1
Hits Allowed (H) -1 Walks Issued (BB) -1


I would be trading away Mat Latos (457 projected points, 8th round pick) and Ichiro Suzuki (335 projected points, added from FA)
and in return would get Melky Cabrera (411 projected points, 12th round pick) and Ian Kennedy (399 projected points, 17th round pick)

Here is my current line-up:

Batters:
C Matt Wieters, Bal C
1B Albert Pujols, LAA
2B Jason Kipnis, Cle 2B
3B Ryan Zimmerman, 3B
SS Starlin Castro, ChC SS DTD
2B/SS Elvis Andrus, Tex SS
1B/3B Freddie Freeman, Atl 1B
OF Josh Hamilton, LAA OF
OF Matt Holliday, StL OF
OF Ichiro Suzuki, NYY OF ****** Trade for Melky Cabrera
OF Shane Victorino, Bos OF
OF Josh Willingham, Min OF, DH
UTIL Ike Davis, NYM 1B

Bench Mike Moustakas, 3B
Bench Curtis Granderson, OF (INJURED TILL MID MAY-ISH)

Pitching:
P Justin Verlander, Det SP
P David Price, TB SP
P Mat Latos, Cin SP DTD ****** Trade for Ian Kennedy
P Jordan Zimmermann, Wsh SP
P Max Scherzer, Det SP
P Jarrod Parker, Oak SP

P Jim Johnson, Bal RP
P Greg Holland, KC RP
P Huston Street, SD RP

Bench Addison Reed, CWS RP



Also keep in mind if I don't trade, when Granderson returns to action I would bench Suzuki and have him in my OF.
Bear in mind also that I am a Giants fan born and raised in the Bay Area, so seeing Posey smash Latos for that grand slam in game 5 of the NLDS to me signified the already emotionally unstable Latos could be on a downhill (as his spring training has shown so far..)
Acquiring Cabrera would also sting a little considering what happened last year...

As you can see I am in a pickle and would greatly appreciate everyone's advice
Thanks! :-)

I have Melky & Kennedy on quite a few teams and I don't have Latos or Suzuki on any, so it seems I must like that pair better. ;-)

As long as its not a keeper league, I want to be on the Ichiro/Latos side of that trade. Kennedy/Latos are probably about equal in terms of talent (maybe slight edge to Kennedy), but Kennedy is playing on a bad team, and seeing how much he will get penalized for losses (some of which won't be his fault), I would pass. Latos is on a bit better team and plays in a weak division that probably won't score a ton of runs all year.

Melky is a ticking time bomb. He is coming off of an age 27 year where he got caught using PEDs, and had a BAbip of .379. He'll be lucky to hit over .300 this year now that he's back in the AL, and AVG is really his only tool.

and Ichiro will at least provide a fair amount of runs and steals to go with a solid BA.
Latos+Ichiro fro the win.
No part of Cabrera.

I see Ichiro and Melky as a wash out and Latos >>> Kennedy (in your format especially)

I agree. I want no part of the Pedman. And Kennedy is an OK but not great SP. Latos is a lot better.
