    Am i missing something in this trade?

    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?

    • We just got a trade accepted. How do you think I did? I gave Bryce Harper, Hyun Jin Ryu, and Michael Morse for Ian Kinsler, James Shields, and Alex Gordon

    • 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.

    • This trade offer would be ok if you needed a 2B. But you don't so I don't understand the guys logic in this proposal.

    • My Team: C: Miguel Montero, 1B: Freddie Freeman, Adam Laroche 2B: Daniel Murphy, and Dan Uggla, SS: Everth Cabrera, 3B: Adrian Beltre, 2B/SS: J.J. Hardy, 1B/3B: Ryan Howard, OF: Carlos Gomez, Bryce Harper(DL), Justin Upton, Charlie Blackman, Michael Bourn, Coco Crisp, Michael Morse, Emilio Bonifacio, Jason Heyward, B.J. Upton
      SP: Yu Darvish, Strasburg, Arron Harang, Lance Lynn, Hyun Jin Ryu, A.J. Burnett, Ervin Santana

    • 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.
