DYNASTY DEAL with prospects! ...............AROD is back!

Seriously, I wouldn't even consider it without BOTH Delmon and Alex in there.

Prospects are prospects.

They have the potential to be studs, but aren't just yet.

Well you were right he is caving a bit. Now he said he'd be willing to move DYoung but notice his email.....

Ok, I am willing to deal Delmon Young, however, I'd like to adjust it a
little bit, i am not particularly interested in church or salas, would
you take:

A-Rod, Rentaria, and Rios

for

Delmon Young, Steven Drew, and Lincecum


:-t :-t :-t :-t :-t
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Just stop talking to him.

Why would you want to trade the 2nd best player in the game for not even the 2nd best prospect? Tell him to get real.

I love Stephen Drew. I really do.


If EVERYTHING goes right for Gordon he might be A-rod in 3 years. Same with Delmon Young. So unless you get both it really worth your effort. The problem was you accepted his first trade to quickly now he think so now he thinks he can get A-Rod for less.

Do not do that trade unless you get both Delmon Young and Gordon. Forget about Quentin, Lincecum, Drew, and Hermida. The two guys you really want from that trade were Delmon Young and Alex Gordon. If he can get those two plus one other for A-Rod alone, do it. Otherwise tell him to hit the bricks.

A rule of thumb in bargaining never accept the first offer.

He sent me this email:

Sorry, A-Rod is great and all, but I have high expectations for all of
those guys, 3 of the potential best players in the game over the next
few years, I am not dieing to move any of them, so any offer is gonna
have to convince me, im willing to wait for them to achieve their
potential, ill still listen to offers, but it'll have to be something
convincing on my end.

After reading this thread, I have a couple of questions. First, did he actually propose the trade in OP to you? Second, how did he bring up that he was not willing to trade either Delmon or Alex Gordon?

I really hate when managers do this.
