Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Got offered Cespedes for Hamels. Kipnis and Harper are on the deal for me. My staff is Grienke, Iwakuma, Minor, Shelby Miller, Lohse, Matt Harrison, Bundy(NA), Bradley(NA), Derek Holland(DL). OF is a platoon Soriano, Colabello. Also, thinking of offering Minor for somebody

Should I trade
Mike Minor AND Cole Hamels for Adam Jones or just try and find someone cheaper for just Hamels or Minor separately? I just lost Harper to the DL and I'm platooning Carlos Gonzalez, Alfonso Soriano, Chris Colabello, and Brandon Moss out there between the OF and Util spots. My pitching is Grienke, Lohse, Shelby Miller, Iwakuma, Matt Harrison, And I have Derek Holland on DL as well along with Bradley and Bundy in the minors. So I feel like I can shell out some pitching for a top OF.
ok so my downsyndrome having older brother of mine offered me A-Gon, Werth, and J-Weav for Harper, Machado, and Hamels.
For some reason he believes that A-Gon is and will continue to be better than Harper for the next 3 years. Granted that doesn't explain the additional bs that comes along with offer, but i want your opinions fellas

As a Dodger fan and Pederson owner I am really hoping for that to happen. This kid is ridiculous. Way bettter than those shmucks platooning right now. But sadly who will take Crawford's contract? Ethier or Kemp seem like the best options to get traded so far especially with Kemp playing terribly
I have him in my Dynasty League. ok so Joc Pederson has been far and beyond the best prospect in baseball so far. Don't try to debate with me on this. His slash line and sheer numbers dwarf Springer's early minor league output. Springer just benefits from a terrible team where Joc has the deepest OF in baseball to worry about. What are his chances in getting the call either with or without the Dodgers this year.

Alright I was just making sure. And yea the guy who traded Braun was trying to shop him around earlier prior to the thumb issue. Thanks for the help bros

yea I saw that guy. Regardless I'm looking for actually opinions. That Cashner-Hanley trade would get vetoed in my league as well unless the guy trading Hanley desperately needed pitching. That's a terrible deal. but whatever.
two guys made this deal
Braun + Chris Archer for Yordano Ventura+ David Price
The guy who traded away Price already has Kershaw and Cliff Lee. I think it was stupid for someone to trade both Braun and Archer for pitching especially when Archer is a top notch arm. Idk, enlighten me fellas

Well there you go two people answered and each said they would take the other team. so i guess it is a fair trade

I was expecting Ethier to be the one that was to be shipped out but even then I don't think it would make sense unless Crawford gets dealt. But Crawford's contract is an albatross

Terrible trade especially in a Dynasty league. How is it not collusion? 3 of the best young players/prospects in baseball for a 3 losers (linstrom, barnes, dunn) a has-been(crawford) and Verlander who's career is winding down significantly
I know he's not getting called up due to the already packed Dodger OF, but this kid is flat out raking so far in Triple A and has been simply dominant. He's put up far better numbers than Springer and is getting shafted cause of the talent ahead of him. Do you guys think that he'll be getting traded this year or is he gonna get the eventual call to be in Dodger blue?
Just got offered
Evereth Cabrera and Francisco Liriano for Joey Votto
I'd be getting the former. I need a lil pitching and have zero at SS the rest of my line up includes Cutch, Carlos Gomez, Kipnis so i got some pop
