Big Trade - Should I Accept?

Postby handslikesecrets » Tue Jun 18, 2013 12:31 pm

I have been offered: Craig Kimbrel, Jeff Locke, Patrick Corbin, and Yadier Molina in exchange for Evan Gattis, Hunter Pence, Yasiel Puig, and Bryce Harper.
I am in a 12-team H2H league, and I feel like I need better pitching. I have a lot of offense, but am I giving up too much? Molina is a big upgrade at C, and Kimbrel would give me saves. Locke & Corbin would give me wins. I am #1 in our league currently, though it seems like all of my elite players are on the DL. My team is:
C- Brian McCann
1B- Billy Butler
2B- Jose Altuve
3B- Evan Longoria
SS- Josh Rutledge
OF- Alex Gordon
OF- Hunter Pence
OF- Carlos Gomez
UTIL- Coco Crisp
UTIL- Yasiel Puig
BENCH- Kyle Seager
DL- Ryan Braun
DL- Jose Reyes
DL- Bryce Harper
DL- Evan Gattis

SP- Chris Sale
SP- Madison Bumgarner
RP- Aroldis Chapman
RP- Heath Bell
P- Kenley Jansen
P- Kevin Gregg
P- Zack Greinke
P- Clay Buchholz
BN- Rick Porcello
DL- A.J. Burnett

Do I accept the trade?

I would pass here. You are giving up the better talent. Pitching stats can be created via streaming matchups, which Locke and Corbin could turn into by seasons end. I have never been a big fan of trading for a 1yr break out SP.

You'd shred your OF completely. Maybe try to work out a lesser deal with Corbin+Kimbrel for your Pence+something
