Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
It's a keeper league...
I get: Matt Cain and David Freese and a 10th Round Pick
I give: Chase Headley and a third round draft pick
SS: A. Cabrera
MI: A. Escobar
BN: Chris Carter
BN: Billy Hamilton
SP: Cueto (DL)
I'm torn on whether not to accept, what would you do?
IF you are able to keep everyone in that trade, it's a good trade for you imo. Before last year Headley had never hit more than 12 HRs in a year, nor slugged over .420. He was a batting average guy, and I believe based on results of 5 full major league seasons, last year was an aberration. This is a definite sell high.
David Freese has slugged higher than the above 3 out of 4 part time MLB seasons, with a .294 average. And then you get an ace to boot. Take it. Draft picks are important, but they're always to pick up team fill ins, as the elite talent is kept. If you keep 10 or more, depending on number of teams then the draft pick becomes less important.
