The last-place manager in my 10-team 5x5 NL roto league has announced Matt Kemp up for auction to whomever can offer the best across-the-board improvement to his team (he basically is in need of everything except strikeouts). He doesn't have much else, at least on the offense side. I am in need of runs and steals, and homers to a lesser extent, so Kemp would be a good fit (of course, what team would that NOT be the case?) My full roster is below, but I'm thinking that I might offer something along the lines of Prado (who's coming back next week) and David Freese or Chipper Jones, whichever he'd prefer, plus Josh Johnson. If Johnson's hurt for the year, then that's a bad trade for him. If Johnson comes back early, that seems like a solid deal. From my perspective, it seems like Johnson's realistically hoping for mid-August, which gets him maybe 5 or 6 starts; it might be the sort of hail-mary kind of thing a last place team can benefit from. That said, I don't want give up tons of useful players across the board to get Matt Kemp but be left with the dregs of our waiver wire for the rest of my team. I'm looking for ideas; I think he'll take any position as long as it's good!
Thanks for your help!
