Hill for Kershaw?

Recommended Posts

So my team's misfired so far and although end of June is still a little to start selling, I'm thinking about trading away Aaron Hill to get Kershaw. I already have Brandon Phillips at 2B so it's not like I'm going to need a guy there for a while.

Hill's been great and he could be .280-20-80-80 for the next few years.

But Kershaw's only 21 so he has tremendous upside to go with his nasty stuff and the fact that he pitches in Chavez Ravine.

Do I pull this? I already have a bunch of young pitchers, but I'm starting to get uncertain of Liriano.

Because it's a dynasty league, that's a very reasonable deal. Just keep in mind that I believe Hill is probably going to be a top 10 2B for the next few years, and maybe even stay in the top 5. But, given your strength with Phillips, going after a stud arm (in dynasty, the guy's a stud arm, not in redraft) like Kershaw is a smart move.
