Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
In a 12 team keeper league. standard 5x5 cats without knowing team needs.
Someone offered me a trade where I give Carlos Gomez, Stephen Strasburg, and Michael Bourn for his Ian Kinsler, Alex Gordon, and James Shields. I think its pretty far off but wanted to see your opinions. What do you think and how close is it?
After looking over your teams, what if you took Gomez and Gordon out of the equation and just made it Straus/Bourn for Shields/Kinsler? You have enough OF depth that you could even give him someone better than Bourn and that trade might still be worthwhile for you...maybe give him up to Heyward instead of Bourn if he pressed the issue?
If you were going to give up Gomez, I would want to fill needs at 2B and SS. For Gomez/Straus/Bourn I would want something in return like Kinsler/Desmond/Shields.

No way would I do that trade.
He must think you really need depth and help at 2B. But you don't need it that bad. CarGomez is the best hitter in the deal and Strasburg is the best pitcher in the deal. Post both of your teams and we can help you come up with a counter, though.
Respond to my A-Jax, Dayan, or Dexter to replace Bryce thread please.
