Trade: Zobrist for Kemp, Segura?

Postby Brizee8 » Tue Apr 23, 2013 6:42 pm

I've been offered a trade in my league. I would give up Ben Zobrist and I would receive Matt Kemp and Jean Segura. I'm going to decline the trade as of now, but I wanted to see what you all thought and if I should reconsider.

Here's my roster:

1B: Ryan Howard
2B: Chase Utley
3B: Manny Machado
SS: JJ Hardy
MI: Jose Altuve
CI: Michael Cuddyer
OF: Giancarlo Stanton
OF: Jose Bautista
OF: Dexter Fowler
OF: Josh Reddick
OF: Ben Zobrist
UTIL: Everth Cabrera
BE: Starling Marte
DL: Ryan Zimmerman (normally at 3B)

P: Cole Hamels
P: Yu Darvish
P: Max Scherzer
P: Yovani Gallardo
P: Tim Hudson
P: Jeremy Hellickson
P: Hyun-Jin Ryu
P: Jonathan Papelbon
P: Chris Perez
P: Brandon League
P: Jim Henderson

Here's his team:

C: Yadier Molina
1B: Mark Reynolds
2B: Josh Rutledge
3B: Miguel Cabrera
SS: Ian Desmond
MI: Jean Segura
CI: Adrian Beltre
OF: Bryce Harper
OF: Mark Trumbo
OF: Norichika Aoki
OF: Evan Gattis
OF: Lorenzo Cain
UTIL: AJ Pierzynsky
BE: Matt Kemp

P: Kris Medlen
P: AJ Burnett
P: Kyle Lohse
P: Justin Masterson
P: Alex Cobb

P: Jason Grilli

What do you think about the trade? Am I right to reject it? Or should I reconsider?

I would take it in a heartbeat. Segura is hitting leadoff and can do a lot of damage on the bases with SB and runs if he gets on base.

Kemp is a 5-tool stud when healthy. This will only improve your roster and even help you with future trades. You get more trading chips.

Would you have any hesitation over Zobrist's hot start and position flexibility, and Kemp's slow start? Would it be smart to accept the trade as is or make a counter offer?

I accept that trade ASAP. It's only 3 weeks, I am not worrying about his slow start yet. DO it ;-D

I agree with others, you'll take a slight hit and for a few weeks but this is a good move for your. It's a long season, and Kemp will get his stats. Zobrist is solid, but he's going to come back to earth a little inevitably.

I agree with the others. Zobrist is starting to come back down to earth. Kemp will turn things around. Accept it before he realizes how dumb he is!!

After hearing you guys, I'm not leaning toward accepting the trade. Just to confirm things, here's where I am in the standings so far (by rank). Just want to make sure everything stands true after seeing it.

Overall (5th)
R (8th
HR (6th)
RBI (3rd)
SB (1st)
AVG (8th)

K (3rd)
W (4th)
S (T-5th)
ERA (9th)
WHIP (7th)

Are my pitching rankings disturbing?

You HAVE to take this deal. It is a steal for you. Seriously why even think about it? Kemp will catch fire and Segura has looked great.

please help

You've got us all stumped, then you asked what we'd do, we say do the deal unanimously, and now you say you aren't going to do it. What gives? Take the motherflippin deal.
