Big Kemp Trade

Postby tgo0 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 2:17 am

Was offered this the other day. Don't think it's in my best interest but just wanted to bounce it off others for fun. I think he's trying to buy low on Kemp and sell high on Lowrie and Harvey (who I DO think will be good though)

I give:
Kemp
A. Jackson
Castro

I get:
Cain
Harvey
Lowrie


What do you guys think?
12-team 5x5 H2H w/4 keepers

C:Molina
1B: Howard
2B: Altuve
3B: Freese
SS: Castro
OF:Braun,Kemp,A Jackson
Util:C Davis
Bench:Victorino,Gardner,Rutledge

SP:Strasburg,Melden,Milone,Cobb,Ryu,J Fernandez,Kendrick,Westbrook
RP:Rivera, Perez

Brutal. If you took out the Lowrie/Castro part It'd be much closer to a deal, but do you really need that much pitching help?

Awful deal for you. He is trying to get you to give up on Matt Kemp. Don't even think of accepting.

I'm a big Matt Harvey fan, but you would be giving up the three best people in that deal...so I'm not really sure what you're getting back.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Your pitching will be fine when Cueto gets off the DL.
Victorino is solid Gardner is as well, but that would be too big a downgrade.

Maybe move Austin Jackson for a SP (Cain or Harvey) would be better for you and you can afford to deal AJax.
