    MONSTER 12 team 5X5 h2h league NO KEEPERS

    I send: Yasiel Puig, Nelson Cruz, Ryan Howard (I'd drop Mike Aviles)
    I get: Jose Bautista, Victor Martinez, Jose Altuve, Alexei Ramirez

    C: Yadier Molina
    1B: Ryan Howard
    2B: Ian Kinsler
    3B: Pedro Alvarez
    SS: Mike Aviles
    2B/SS:
    1B/3B: Justin Morneau
    OF: Yasiel Puig
    OF: Andrew McCutchen
    OF: Nelson Cruz
    OF: Michael Morse
    OF: Oscar Taveras
    UTL: Mike Napoli
    Bench: Denard Span
    Bench: Ben Revere
    --------------------------------------------------
    After trade:
    C: Yadier Molina
    1B: Victor Martinez
    2B: Ian Kinsler
    3B: Pedro Alvarez
    SS: Alexei Ramirez
    2B/SS: Jose Altuve
    OF: Jose Bautista
    OF: Andrew McCutchen
    OF: Michael Morse
    OF: Oscar Taveras
    OF: Denard Span
    UTL: Mike Napoli
    Bench: Ben Revere
    Bench: Pick up a OF or a RP with news that Addison Reed may be losing his job

    Not downplaying Puigs talents, but his injury worries me a little, and OF is ALOT easier to replace than 2B/SS. I have absolutely no one who plays 2B or SS in our FA pool.

    • The owner that I offered the above trade to, responded with this offer:
      I send: Nelson Cruz
      I receive: Victor Martinez and Alexei Ramirez

      Also, another owner (who's in need of steals and has 2 declining 1B) sent me this offer:
      I send: Ryan Howard, Ben Revere, Mike Aviles
      I get: Neil Walker, Lorenzo Cain

      So with the 2 trades put together, it would basically look like this:
      I send: Nelson Cruz, Ryan Howard and Ben Revere
      I get: Victor Martinez, Alexei Ramirez, and Neil Walker

      I would effectively fill the craters I have at SS (Alexei Ramirez), 2B/SS (Neil Walker) and improving my 1B (Victor Martinez). I would be doing this while getting to keep Puig and my team would look like this:

      C: Yadier Molina
      1B: Victor Martinez
      2B; Ian Kinsler
      3B: Pedro Alvarez
      SS: Alexei Ramirez
      2B/SS: Neil Walker
      1B/3B: Justin Morneau
      OF: Andrew McCutchen
      OF: Yasiel Puig
      OF: Michael Morse
      OF: Oscar Taveras
      OF: Nick Markakis
      UTL: Mike Napoli
      Bench: Denard Span
      Bench: Lorenzo Cain

    • Who does the other guy have to play 2nd and ss? I would assume that he wouldn't accept this trade.
