Big Trade. Need Help!!!!..WHIR

Postby mulb222 » Wed May 04, 2011 9:53 pm

I have been offered Matt Kemp, Jonny Gomes, and Carlos Marmol for my Drew Stubbs, Ichiro, and Lyle Overbay. I feel like I would gain from this trade in some ways, but I feel like I'm giving up some key categories such as SB & OBP. Remeber that I would be stuck without a RF and I would have to pick up some crappy guy
Let me know what you think...........................

(FYI: I am in first and haven't lost yet)

This is a big league with 20 teams so there isnt much to pick from in the FA pool.

My team looks like this:
C: Russell Martin
1B: Prince Fielder
2B: Brian Roberts
3B: Adrian Beltre
SS: Alex Gonzalez
LF: Ryan Braun
CF: Drew Stubbs
RF: Ichiro Suzuki
UTIL: Dexter Fowler
BN: Ryan Theriot
BN: Yadier Molina
BN: Lyle Overbay

SP: Fausto Carmona
SP: Ian Kennedy
SP: Randy Wolf
SP: Shaun Marcum
RP: JJ Putz
RP: Joel Hanrahan
RP: Jordan Walden
RP: Kerry Wood
RP: Jeremy Affeldt
BN: Livan Hernandez(SP)
BN: Joel Pineiro(SP)
BN: Ted Lilly(SP)
BN: Brett Myers(SP)

If i understand this right you would have to put Gomes on your bench. That leaves the basic trade of Stubbs and Ichiro for Kemp and Marmol. While Marmol would help with saves it seems like you have a pretty good relief corp and may not benefit much from him. Stubbs and Kemp should put up somewhat similar number (Kemp's will be better of course) so it basically boils down to Ichiro for Marmol. I think the loss of Ichiro will impact you more than the addition of Marmol since you will have to pick up a scrub for RF. I would pass on this deal since you stand to lose a lot more than you gain. With 20 teams you should be fine at closer with 3 of them.

I think I would do this trade. I would then try and turn around and trade either Gomes or some of your RP (or both) for a good RF. I just think this is a lot of talent for guys I don't really believe in.

If not for the RF thing i would say totally do it. I'd ask around to see if any RFs are available before pulling the trigger. otherwise i wouldnt weaken on position just to get better at spots where you are already strong

help w/ mine?
