Yes I agree with you here. Would be willing to swap Upton/Pence straight-up? Would you?
Well, Pence is in his final keeper year and Upton has 2 more after this, so it should be fair. And I doubt I keep him given my other options and the fact that I am strongly positioned for this year. But I know he fixates on pitchers I have too. He likes Jordan Zimmerman, Romero and Smyly in partic.
The way I see it, I gain singles, HR, 2B and consistency with Pence. I lose some BB and a fair amount of SB.
Thoughts on a way to make this work?
I'd offer it to him straight up with emphasis on the weight in his favor in terms of keeper years. I wouldn't complicate things with adding SPs which you will then have to equalize in value. I like Pence over BJ for this season as well, and given that you won't be keeping either, it seems like a good deal for you. Plus, you can get SBs later pretty easily if absolutely necessary.
