I get Benitez
I give F Cordero, Monreau
Youre giving too much, IMO..
I get Bonds and Halladay
I give Sheets and Mench
Close to even. Not vetoable though.
I get Bonds
I give C Patterson (this was more hypothetical since i need the SB)
I think youre giving a little to slim of an offer. But the thing is bonds stats is up in the air so its not vetoable.
then i ask him what he is planning to do to try to get ichuro from my friend and he thinks giving up Nevin and one of his lower pitchers is fair. I ask him and he values nevin over monreau by a fair margin and says it doesn't matter where they are drafted in a trade. Can i trust him for advice and i guess as a commish since he brought a lot of rookies in the league or do you think i'm in for a long season?
nevin + lower pitcher is way too little for ichiro. I like Morneau over Nevin. I have a good friend whos commish and I can talk to him about it because we both know were two fo the better players in the league so theres nothing to worry about.
Your friends advice appears a bit shoddy, though.
