Maybin/K. Johnson for D. Espinosa/B. McCarthy

Postby kswiss » Mon Mar 26, 2012 9:00 pm

I've been proposed this trade in a 12 team 5x5 H2H Keeper league in the first year. The manager seems to want my McCarthy for his bench players. Cameron Maybin seems like he could be a good player for a keeper league, but I already have Angel Pagan who I think might have somewhat similar stats this year but with a higher avg. This is my first real keeper league and I'm not sure how much I should weight that into my decision. It it worth giving up McCarthy for Maybin? Could I get McCarthy for Maybin straight up? Also, the roster updates are weekly instead of daily so it might not be pertinent for me to keep a deep pitching bench, but I'd like to keep a good bench player in case of better matchups or injury.

Thanks for your help, I'll try to help in return.

My Team:
C Wilson Ramos
1B Miguel Cabrera
2B Neil Walker
3B Adrian Beltre
SS Jimmy Rollins

I think this deal is not necessary for you. You are correct that pagan and mayin will provide similiar production. And McCarthy would be good for your pitching depth as well. Also Espinosa might be a possible keeper if he continues to develop, so he is a worthy bench player with more value then Johnson.

If you can keep Maybin, i want him.
He's only 24, so a power spike could come.
