Mixed 6x6 keeper (OBP the extra batting category, losses extra P category). I'm tops in most if not all offensive cats -- Bautista, Votto, Tex, Kemp, N.Cruz, Weeks, Avila my core studs, w/ Sandoval coming back soon, Bourgeois coming back for some speed. In 1st place overall (05 total points, 2nd place has 98) while essentially punting starters by having all closers (Axford, League, Salas, Santos, Walden, Melancon)/and two studly middle guys (Mike Adams, David Pauley). have only one starter left after De la Rosa went down: Hanson. So, I'm essentially punting K/wins for saves/WHIP/ERA.
Was going to punt starters and deal Hanson but the Lincecum owner needs an OF and has offered this deal: His Lincecum/Marmol/Rollins for my Kemp/Pierre/S.Drew.
My rationale for possible accepting is: I have Sandoval coming back, can plug him in at 3B, move Bautista to OF with Cruz, Rajai Davis/Bourgeois/Pierre. Can replace Pierre with Bourgeois. I'd then add Marmol to my stacked closer lineup and keep that strategy going (with plans to trade down the line if I need another starter or bat). AND, if Lawrie is even half the player everyone expects for the final 4 months, I might even be able to deal Weeks. And in terms of upside, I think Rollins/Drew are comparable, with Rollins a bit more proven (if aging).
So, in my shoes, would you lose Kemp/Pierre/Drew for Timmay/Marmol/Rollins?
