Votto Kemp trade

Postby garretterik » Thu Apr 04, 2013 12:41 pm

I just got this offer:
My Kemp and Justin Upton for
His Votto, Youkalis, and CDavis(Bal)

I am rejecting this. Votto = Kemp, but Upton better than Youk and Davis AND this would give me too mayn 1B.

What about countering with this?:
My Kemp, Encarnacion, Aybar
His Votto, Holiday, Rollins

Votto = Kemp, Encarnacion = Holliday , but Rollins imporves my middle infield my weakest position until Hanley comes back

Other ideas (don't include Konerko, Goldie, or Upton please)?

My team:
C Wilin Rosario, Col C
1B Edwin Encarnacion, Tor 1B, DH

I would be fine with that deal but if Rollins > Aybar and the other four players are equal then what incentive does he have to do the deal?

This is really close, I think. But if I had to make a choice, I think that I do it. Kemp is recovering from his shoulder surgery, and it looks like he may not be 100% for a bit.

Help with mine?
