Predicament, Need Trade Advice

Postby felixthecat011 » Tue Aug 07, 2012 3:16 pm

Guy in my league has already burned through all of his starts, so his starters are now useless to him. He has Kershaw, whom he can't drop. I'm sure people will lowball him on offers. I was thinking of offering him Panda for Kershaw straight up. I have Chris Johnson at third and Trumbo at CI. I'm way off the pace in starts, last in the league, so I could use another quality arm. The problem is, I need help in the BA and RBI categories, which Panda provides. Plus I already have Verlander, Price, Sale, Halloday, Matt Moore, Burner and Mike Minor, and I know people will cut bait with other starters in the future (guys like Haren, Garza and Hanson have been dropped just this week). Should I make the deal and stream a bat if need be, or go for the big fish in Kershaw and really lock it down? Trade deadline is on Friday.

My complete roster:

C Brian McCann, Atl C
1B Mark Teixeira, NYY 1B
2B Dustin Ackley, Sea 2B
3B Chris Johnson, Ari 3B
SS Alexei Ramirez, CWS SS
2B/SS Josh Rutledge, Col SS
1B/3B Mark Trumbo, LAA 1B, OF, DH
OF Shin-Soo Choo, Cle OF
OF Andre Ethier, LAD OF
OF Nick Swisher, NYY OF
OF Mike Trout, LAA OF
OF Drew Stubbs, Cin OF
UTIL Desmond Jennings, TB OF

Bench Pablo Sandoval*, SF 3B DL15
DL Troy Tulowitzki*, Col SS DL15

P Justin Verlander, Det
P David Price, TB
P Chris Sale, CWS
P Roy Halladay, Phi
P A.J. Burnett, Pit
P Matt Moore, TB
P Mike Minor, Atl

P Alfredo Aceves, Bos
P Addison Reed, CWS
P Carlos Marmol, ChC
P Greg Holland, KC

If you can get Panda for Kershaw I would do it. I would think you would need a bit more. I was in a similar situation and just traded Panda today. I had him sitting behind Rizzo, Goldschmidt, and Freese. So there wasn't a spot for him to get hits on my team.
Also, when Panda came back from the last injury it took him a few weeks to get going. The AVG has been there, but the power hasn't.
