Norris and J.Johnson for Kemp?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Sun May 08, 2011 2:15 pm

10 team, H2H league, 27 man rosters, 6x6 cats including R,HR,RBI, SB,AVG, OPS and K, QS, W, S, ERA, WHIP. I am currently 17-25-6 and losing 4-7-1 this week going into today. So, I definitely haven't gotten off to a great start. All four categories that I am winning this week are pitching stats. And as you can see from my lineup below pitching is my strength.

Anyway, I have been offered Matt Kemp for my Josh Johnson and Bud Norris. I need a stud OF but can I afford to lose these two hot starters? I will list my roster below along with the FA SP available if I do this deal. Do I do this? Thanks and leave your links.

MY Team:

C-Posada
1B-MCab
2B-Cano
SS-Reyes
3B-ARod
OF-Quentin
OF-A. Jones
OF-Swisher
UTI-Dunn
BN-Bay
BN-A. Jackson
Bn-Tabata
BN-Rios
DL-D. Young

P-Buccholz
P-Arroyo
SP-Kershaw
SP-J. Johnson
SP-Price
SP-Norris
RP-Cordero
RP-Soria

BN-Volquez
BN-E. Santana
BN-Aardsma
BN-C. Young
DL-Webb

Best FA Pitchers available:

Beachy
C.Lewis
T. Wood
Hughes
Correia
E. Jackson
Holland
Stauffer
Leake
Bailey
Garcia
Arrieta

What do you guys think? Is this a no brainer and who should I pick up from the FA list if I do it?

I'm torn. Part of me wants to say on't do this deal. You've got Alex Rios and Jose Tabata on your bench, and those guys will provide good numbers going forward (Just look at Rios' last 7 days).

The other says that you've got Johnson, David Price, and Clayton Kershaw, and would do fine going forward without those two pitchers. Not to mention that Colby Lewis and Beachy are on your FA wire.

I'd say do this deal, but try to package up some outfielders later on to get a better one/another pitcher, because you'll have at least 4 who are worthy of a starting spot.

I like this trade for your team. Kemp will be a great offensive contribution.

What if I ask for Cueto along with Kemp in return? Is that too much to ask for or would that even it out a little? Or should I just not fool around and accept Kemp?

I don't think you could get Cueto. I'd do the deal regardless. I'd expect Norris to cool off quite a bit, and JJ is always a big injury risk.
