Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I give up: Alex Rios, Gordon Beckham, Chris Perez
I get: Lance Berkman, Jed Lowrie
I can afford to give up some saves and steals, and the other owner has made it clear that he's willing to move Berkman and Lowrie.
And he seems to have a strange infatuation with Gordon Beckham. In fact, the only reason I haven't dropped Beckham is because this guy keeps including him as a throw-in in trade offers.
I like this trade for you but expect lowrie to come back down to earth. beckham isn;t playing well at all right now and could get sent down to Triple-A. I would try to re-negotiate it without including perez unless you really have enough closers to afford this loss. See if you could get maybe one other player in this trade to make it an even 3 for 3 trade, but overall its not bad. Just expect berkman and lowrie to cool down a bit, so I would try to get a 3rd player in there

Berkman is a very good player when healthy and it's showing. Make your argument on dubious health, but saying he is average is laughable. Jed Lowrie has great peripherals as well and I dont think it would surprise any expert if he put up a better year than Beckham.

Thanks for the response. But just to clarify, do you like the deal for me or not? I mean, it'd be nice to keep Perez, but he's definitely expendable to me. So is it still a good trade for me if I have to keep him in the deal?
