Kinsler or Posey ::WHIR::

Postby mekman20 » Mon Mar 28, 2011 10:18 pm

I've been offered Buster Posey and Gordon Beckham for Kinsler. I already have McCann at catcher, so if I did this, it would be with the intention of trading one of the two catchers (probably McCann). Thoughts? I'm not so sure I'm as high on Beckham as lots of others seem to be. This is a 12 team 5x5 roto. WHIR
My offense is:
C- McCann
1b- Agon
2b- Kinsler
3b- Arod
ss- Drew
Of- Kemp
Of- Markakis
Of- A. Jackson
U- Moreland
U- McLouth
Bn: Maggs, Beltran
C. McCann
1b. Agon
2b. Pedroia
3b. Arod
ss. Drew
OF. McCutchen
OF. Sizemore
OF. R. Davis
U. Morse
U. Beltran
Bn. Yunel, Freeman
SP. Verlander, Felix, Shields, B. Anderson, Bedard, Danks, Nolasco, Garza
RP. Kimbrel, Bailey, Melancon, Venters

This is a no-brainer. Kinsler is way more valuable than Posey and Beckham put together and McCann is already a better option than Posey. Posey is being WAY overvalued and even then McCann is still more valuable. Keep Kinsler and DEFINITELY don't do this deal.

I'd have to agree with the person above me. Posey is being way overvalued after only half a season in the majors. Granted, I believe he will be an extraordinary catcher, but I'd rather have McCann right now. And Beckham could definitely have a bounceback year as indicated by his 2nd half last season, but you never know. With Kinsler, you are getting a super-solid 2B (assuming he can stay away from the DL).
