Commissioner Corner Message Board
A team that is in last place in my league (let's call them Team 1) is trying to make 2 trades that I'm not sure if I should let pass:
Team 1 to trade AJ Pierzynski, Jayson Werth, Michael Young, Rafael Soriano, Wei-Yin Chen and 16th and 17th Round Draft Picks
Team 2 to trade Ryan Doumit and 1st and 2nd Round Draft Picks
Team 1 to trade Nick Markakis, Ryan Zimmerman, Joe Nathan, Bruce Chen and 18th and 19th Round Draft Picks
Team 3 to trade Martin Prado and 1st and 2nd Round Draft Picks
What do you guys think?
Let the guy manage his team and quit trying to interfere. He is in last place and is trying to set himself up for next year. Honestly the only guy that may even be considered a keeper is R. Zimmerman so he is making some good trades.
1st and 2nd rd picks with 3 keepers means 2 top 60 players or close to that. The players coming back don't even remotely compare to that value. So I'd say that trade is junk regardless of who the teams are trading.
2nd trade I can see it more just because of Zimmerman, although I've always thought he was highly overrated, but at least there is a piece similar to one of the draft picks value.
Imo both trades are pretty junky. If they are put through though, then Team 1 should be ecstatic.
