Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I recieved a trade offer this morning, where I am getting Ubaldo Jimenez and trading Chase Utley.
I already have Ben Zobrist as my starting 2B and once the season starts, I'll be putting Tim Hudson on the DL, which will allow me to pick up one of Neil Walker, Daniel Espinosa or Jose Altuve from Free Agency.
I could also wait until the season starts (with Hudson on the DL) and ask for Aarron Hill to be included in the deal.
Any advice would be appreciated :)
He declined my offer of Utley and a 4th for Jimenez and a 2nd, while also cancelling his original offer.
I'm sure if I resend him the original deal, he'll accept it, but I'm still not sure if I want to do it.
He went as far as to say he should be getting the 2nd round pick, while only giving up a 4th, so he might not.
I'm not convinced Ubaldo will back to his former self, but i am convince that Utley has old man knees and is a shell of his former self. I'd probably take that gamble if you already have a decent 2B

Like I said, I already have Ben Zobrist, so Utley will be a bench player anyways.
I asked him if he could wait till the season starts, that way Hudson is on the DL and I can pick up Walker without dropping anybody.
Only problem is, right now Walker is on Waivers, so he might be picked up before the season starts.
