Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Hi folks. This is a head-to-head, 5x5, & non-keeper league. I'm looking to trade for Goldschmidt & Bumgarner. I'm wanting to make a fair offer that the league will be happy with. The other team is in 9th place & will not make the playoffs. He wants to make a fair trade, but he's not particular as to who he will get back. He has big needs at 3B & RP. I will definitely give him a good RP with me having six at the moment. Lol! Please provide trade offer suggestions. My thoughts are:
His: Goldschmidt & Bumgarner
My: Alvarez, Fernandez OR Iwakuma, & one of my good RP's
My team: C - Lucroy, 1B - Cuddyer, 2B - Phillips, SS - Desmond, 3B - Beltre, OF - Holliday, Bourn, Pence, Util - Alvarez, Morneau, Bench - Headley, DL - Carlos Gonzalez
Pitching: SP - Lee, Cain, Kuroda, Fernandez, Iwakuma, Teheran, Lohse
RP - Papelbon, Casey Janssen, Perkins, Cishek, Melancon, DL - Betancourt
I will answer your posts too. Thanks!
I wouldn't give you Goldy OR Bum for all of that. Whats the point in playing in a league with people so stupid that this trade would actually be considered? Also, what self respecting league allows people out of the playoffs to even make trades unless this is a keeper league? If that's the case, then this trade is even worse.
This is exactly the same as your other post about another team? Honestly, how bad is your league and how easy is it to play in? I'm sorry but if you want those players you have to give more then that. You can't come up short on every end of the deal. I don't care that he's not making the playoffs, your accomplishment of winning wont mean anything if you steal players from uncaring managers. Just like you did Desmond. Also, you can't possibly believe that he doesn't know about Fernandez or Melancon, its not secretive news and you aren't the only one who realizes it.
To get those two players you would have to give up probably Beltre/Gonzalez, Cain/Lee, Janssen/Perkins/Papelbon
Those two players you want are some of the highest ranked at their position. You can't just trade cotton candy.
If I was on the other end I'd want a quality return package starting with Beltre. I read where Fernandez may have an innings limit so he may not be wanted. You could sweeten a deal with 2 RP's. I just think to get a deal thru you would need to give up a lot to get those two.
