Trading Stanton for Kemp?

Postby tululush » Tue Apr 16, 2013 7:20 am

So I'm getting frustrated in owning Stanton. I owned him last year and I know he started out slow as well but at least last year he had a supporting cast. The one thing I'm hoping for is he gets traded esp since this is a keeper league. But, I'm exploring trade options.

I was really close last night to trading him for Heyward+ but that fell through. I also tried talking with the CarGo owner but no dice. I've sent a message to the McCutchen owner but is there anyone else out there worth trading Stanton for? Maybe Kemp? What would be a good short list to attempt to trade for and if I can't land any of them just hang tight.

Thanks everyone!

Stanton is a tier or so lower than any of the names you mentioned. I like upton, Jones, and harper. What about Bruce+(closer maybe?)?

By lower you mean the others I mentioned were better than Stanton? If I could get Kemp for Stanton would you do it?

I own Upton. Do you mean Adam Jones? Doubtful Harper would get traded in my league.

Yes. Yes. Yes. And yes.

If you can any top ten players take it. I still consider Kemp there. I also had Kemp and stanton more or less flipped in my pre season rankings compared to grey. Adam Jones is a stud and heyward Bruce are close so if you get them + maybe a.pitcher or 242 swap to upgrade something else I think you are doing well. Stanton is top ten upside but I don't like his floor or his average much.

Ended up trading Stanton+Headley for McCutchen+McCann. This is for my other league so the team in my signature is a different team.

I now have somewhat of a less hole at catcher with Gattis and McCann and will now have to play Middlebrooks at 3rd everyday. Other than that my team is looking pretty good.
