Trade Kershaw for Stanton, Adam Jones & Westbrook? WHIR

Postby DC nats05 » Mon Apr 18, 2011 3:17 pm

Hey guys,

I'm in a 10-team 5x5 h2h dynasty league (with 25 roster slots) in its second season and I was recently proposed a trade, sending Kershaw and receiving Mike Stanton, Adam Jones and Jake Westbrook. I'm considering it, but I'm also very hesitant to pull the trigger. Kershaw is my best pitcher and has the potential to get even better. Also, I'm stacked at OF, as I have Hamilton, Bautista, Stubbs, Markakis, Sizemore, Span, Gutierrez and Dominic Brown. Also, I'm not completely sold on Stanton - will he produce like people say? I guess I'm a doubter. I've also considered countering with a trade that substitutes a pitcher like Morrow or maybe Zimmerman for Adam Jones, which would suit me better.

My roster:
C Buster Posey
1B Miguel Cabrera
2B Danny Espinosa
3B Pedro Alvarez
SS Jose Reyes
2B/SS Alcides Escobar

I'd pass on this deal. I do like Stanton, particularly in a keeper league, but I'd want better pieces in return then Jones and Westbrook if I'm going to deal a top pitcher like Kershaw.

I'd pass on this deal. I realize the youth you receive, but Kershaw is currently top end AND young. I'd hold out for guys that will immediately produce at a level higher than both Stanton and Jones currently are. You're banking on too much potential and inconsistency right now.
