What about Clippard/Loney for Brignac ??

Brignac has cooled off quite a bit. Is he worth Clippard/Loney ???

I would do any 2:1 trade where you are offering two medicore prospects for a top prospect.

If you are asking which one you should accept, then Rasmus is clearly teh best. If you are asking which one you should offer, then it doesnt' matter - none of them will be accepted.

why not discuss this with the other team, not here?

You are offering two very low-end "prospects" for two potentially monster prospects. It's not likely.

But may he wants players that are closer to the majors? Maybe he doesn't like teenagers. I dont' know.

But it's very unlikely that anything you are discussing will get accepted.

If this is just you brainstorming what offers to make, then please let me know and I won't resond anymore becuase it's a complete waste of time.

If you've been offered a trade, then make it explicit.

OK...OK...I apoligize in advance if this continuing thread annoys Curtis Pride. I have appreciated your advice thus far.

I am working my way down the list of prospects trying to deal Loney and Clippard in a 2 for 1 deal where I can get someone with better prospect status that Loney/Clippard and then pick up another prospect for my minor league team.

Thus far, all of my offers have been rejected,

But I may have a trading partner who is willing to give up Gio Gonzalez. What are people's feelings on his prospect status. He now has 82K/20BB in 59.2 IP as a 21 year old at AA.

Would I be giving up too much ??

Again I apoligize in advance if this thread continues to aggrevate Curtis Pride. But where else would I go to get people's opinions on the value of minor leaguers. I have the top 100 lists from pre-season, but things have changed as we are now 1/3 of the way into the season.

Seriously man, just shut up. If you don't like his post, don't respond. You did this in the other thread too.

Afraudsdirty, I would do them all, but too bad they got rejected. Why don't you try to get McCutchen? I know he was ranked extremely high, but when the owner tells you that, just bring up his stats. He is playing very poorly right now.

I would not do it for Gio Gonzalez though.

I'm not upset or annoyed.

I am just telling the guy that he's wasting his time on here with this discussion. He needs to discuss this with the teams involved.

It's highly unlikely you are going to be able to trade those two players for anything of value.

And the only way to determine if you can is to discuss specifics with teams, and not try the shotgun approach and just throw a bunch of offers out there and try and see if something sticks.

All that's going to happen is the other teams get annoyed as his mountain of offers.

I would absolutely trade those two guys for Gonzalez.
