ok we are in a keeper league that goes to dynasty next year....typical $260 start point and salary carries over plus $1...i have been offered the following two options...i will also list out my roster
another owner offered Carlos lee $30, jordan schafer $1, Max scherzer $3, Trevor cahill or brett anderson my choice both cost $1
for carlos quentin $10 and i would throw in marcus thames cause would have to drop anyways

we also carry 8 minors: andrew mccuthceon, steve pearce, matt dominguez, tommy hanson, charles lofgren,austin jackson,josh lindblom,alcides escobar
So my question is take the trade or no? Im giving up one of best keepers in baseball for cheap i wash this year with lee (wouldnt keep him next year) pick up schafer and two of best SP prospects in the game....what are your thoughts? WHIR
I'm not high on Quentin, but I wonder if you could get better than Lee for him (I think they're both overrated, as Lee's aging and in a declining offense, and Quentin's not over his wrist injury - his power is going to be down this season, and he'll be underrated in 2010). Lee's expensive, too, so I don't know if this guy is trying to clear salary cap room?
It looks like you'd be adding $25. Will that leave you with no room to make changes in the season?
Honestly, I would deal Quentin, and I love the young guys you'd be getting (you can keep anyone in the next season for only $1 more, so Schafer at $2, Scherzer at $4?), but I'd try to swap Lee if possible.
thanks guys...im intrigued by all the young SP he is offering...he has now added Jarrod Parker
so deal would be Carlos lee, Jordan Schafer, Max Scherzer, Trevor Cahill and Jarrod Parker
Carlos Quentin, marcus thames and I may throw in volstad to clear roster space
his roster is loaded with young guys that are not cheap...i tried to get jay bruce instead of lee and he would not do it...then i tried upton and again no go...if i go for this i will try and move lee and probably lackey for another big bat....im so very tempted by all those young arms in a dynasty league where total cost for all four minus lee is $6
Thoughts? Good stuff so far...i have about an hour to decide....anyone else have concerns with quentin wrist?
I just proposed bruce instead of lee...if he agrees im taking it
deal would be jay bruce,scherzer,cahill,schafer and parker
for quentin, thames, lindblom or volstad....if he keeps it lee still not sure...any last thoughts?
I dont have concerns about Quentin's wrist and would actually do this deal because I like Lee better than Quentin and you are getting an abundance of young talent for one player and in a dynasty that is golden. I like it.
