    Blockbuster deal

    Well I have Trumbo at first, but I also have Freeman and Allen Craig who are 1B eligible. I have Kemp, Tulo, and Carl Crawford on the DL, so I will eventually have to free up some roster space for them. That is why I added Konerko. The people in my league are ridiculously difficult to make a deal with. I would make this offer and they would counter with Nelson Cruz and Drew Stubbs for Kemp or something foolish like that.

    • Your 1B are super deep!. If the trade has already been proposed, then I would go ahead with it. Otherwise, I would take Chris Sale out and see if they go for it first. Then add a pitcher, maybe Sale later. Sounds like you have a great team. How many teams in your league? How is your pitching staff, especially without Sale?

      • It's only an 8-team league, and I am not really doing that well. I am currently 4th or 5th. I have Josh Johnson, Bumgarner, Darvish, Sale, Peavy, Lewis, and Latos. My pitching staff isn't great, but are holding their own. My closers are Jim Johnson and Kenley. I have great hitters on paper, but with injuries, and underperformers, I am not doing so well.
