Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
This guy and I have the big pieces of the trade set, where
I give: Morneau and Markakis
I get: Fielder and Upton
To even it out, do I offer Burnett or Scherzer?
The guy's interested in both, and I just want it to get through.
I think you are the winner in this trade i'd do it. Prince heating up and healthy, Morneau scares me and always cools off in 2nd half and Justin Upton is going to be a stud and Markakis is what he is avg and not much else. Please see my Cain trade post
The key in this trade is not Morneau for Fielder... Fielder will produce no matter where he is and Morneau is a historically a poor second half player. The key is getting Upton for Markakis. That is where you make the most improvement.
If he would rather have Morneau and Markakis over Fielder and JUpton then just do the trade like that. It is fair enough and shouldn't get vetoed. If it does get vetoed, then try adding a pitcher.
I think its fairly even and I don't think I would want to add either of those pitchers to make it worse, but at the same time I don't value either of those pitchers super high, but their value is probably equal to or around BJ upton's (IMO), thats why I wouldn't want to give them up.
