Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Hi folks. This is a 12 team, roto, & 5x5 league. I just traded Pierzynski to get R. Soriano to help with my RP. I don't usually trade for RP, but I'm not huge on Pierzynski this year. I have McCann & need a good catcher. The team that has Molina is a big Braves fan. I sent him an offer that he countered with:
My: Carl Crawford & McCann
I want to counter his offer with a solid SP (my biggest need), RP, or hitter because Crawford is off to a great start, & I want to get fair value for him. I think a 2 for 2 is a fair deal. Who should I target from his team?
My team: Offense: C - McCann (for the time being), 1B - Votto, 2B - Kipnis, SS - A. Escobar, 3B - Zimmerman, OF - Holliday, Choo, Bourn, Util - Fielder, Crawford, Bench - Pence, Konerko, Aramis Ramirez (DL)
Pitching: SP: Greinke, Kennedy, Lester, C.J. Wilson, Buchholz, Parker, Cahill
RP: Putz, Soriano, Motte (this is why I'm thinking of getting another RP), Herrera
His team: Offense: Molina, Napoli, Phillips, Hardy, Freese, Justin Upton, Heyward, Gomez, Uggla, Middlebrooks, Granderson, Jeter, Gattis
Pitching: SP: Verlander, Wainwright, Medlen, Teheran, Maholm, Beachy
RP: Kimbrel, Balfour, Perez, Janssen, O'Flaherty
I will answer your posts too. Thanks!
I don't like trading for catchers. Their preseason value never really works out and the difference between most of the top ones isn't that far off from the average ones. i'd tell him just because he wants McCann doesn't mean i'd be willing to give up Crawford. Send it back at him McCann for Molina and remind him how McCann can do when healthy.
damn. I like Crawford this year. He's been a diamond in the rough. Hit a Hr to opposite field yesterday and he's getting sbs. I think he will produce close to ellsbury this year. But seeing your offense is pretty deep it will be ok. Personally i'd probably grab a C in FA like Flowers...Gettis is probably gone

You probably won't get quite equal value from him because his SPs are either too good or a Brave. Try adding one of his RPs to the mix. Try Janssen first and then go for Perez.
Shouldn't have traded Pierzynski in the first place.
