    Kemp trade

    Should I take the following trade in a keeper league:

    I get: Kemp, Elliot Johnson, Morgan and Mesoraco
    I give: Kinsler, Howard, Balfour and Rasmus

    Basically, I get Kemp + 3 scrubs. It's a 12-team keeper league, where we keep 12-15 players each year. The main reason for me to do this trade is to upgrade my keepers for next year. However, Im currently first in the league so not sure if this kills my chances for this year.

    Any input is greatly appreciated

    • Well, we can't tell ya if it kills your chances either. We dk if you have another 2b elig player, obv you are in 1st without Howard playing.

      Don't know what your OF looks like.

      Don't know what your team looks like. Don't know how the 2nd place, 3rd place ect teams look to know how much/ if any better your team is than theres and if its h2h or a roto league and if it is roto how far ahead you might be.

      Obviously tho keeper wise, you clearly get the best keeper hands down.
