Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm being offered
SS Jose Reyes
OF Jay Bruce
1B Joey Votto
RP Matt Lindstrom
SP John Maine
OF Alex Rios
OF Carl Crawford
RP Joe Nathan
SP Roy Oswalt
SP Cliff Lee.
This is a ridiculous offer isn't it? I know how great Reyes is but he sure is wanting a lot of my pitching staff. Thoughts??

Yeah you'd be giving up way to much pitching and not getting much pit. in return. I love Votto and reyes, I guess it comes down to who u have at SS now and if u have room for votto. It might be doable if there are still some quality SP in the FA pool. Or if you have some other solid SP already. Or maybe u can trade your current SS for a SP. Maybe trade the guy in vottos spot for another SP too. I guess id have to see ur team to know what to do
Crawford will get 50-60 SBs, which will be close to Reyes. The question is, do you want these SBs to come from your SS position or your OF position. I like Reyes, too, but Crawford has always been a late 1st-early 2nd rounder himself. This is probably too much to give up. I don't know though. It's pretty tough to turn down Reyes. He could go 20-80.
I agree. Too many parts in this trade. Most likely your pitching staff would take a real hit with this trade. You give up two very good starters for one questionable one and trade a super closer for an unproven one. The position players he's offering are very attractive, though. I'd reject his offer and either counteroffer with a much simpler offer for Reyes or tell him who you want from his original offer.
