Here's my offer: My Chris Davis, Fukudome, and Jair Jurrjens (Jurrjens gets great pitcing stats every week... categories: W, L, SHO, SV, K, BLK, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, PICK, NH, QS, BSV)
Mark Reynolds, Curtis Granderson
I know that Reynolds strikes out just about as much as Davis, but I think it's worth a shot. It seems Davis either hits a homer or strikes out. Is this a good offer on my part?If not, what is???? Would I need to offer Cueto instead of Jurrjens? My team: C: Inge 1B: Morneau 2B: Kinsler 3B: Davis SS: Cabrera IF: Zobrist LF: Braun CF: Fukudome RF: J. Guillen OF: Teahen UTIL: Kendry Morales Bench: Blalock, Jose Lopez, S. Drew, Iannetta SP: Haren, Verlander, Maine, Cueto, Jurrjens, Slowey, Edwin Jackson, Harden (start 5 each week) RP: Broxton, Wilson, Soriano (start 3)
I wouldn't accept this trade if it was offered to me. Like someone else said, Davis being buy low and Reynolds sell high works strongly against you. Fukudome is in and out of the FA pool in my leagues, so I'd need a big pitching upgrade to deal Granderson. Try this trade first, but don't expect much. Cueto would probably get you a better response. Good luck.
you might get better results if you switch out Jair for Cueto and their pitching has been fairly comparable this year so that wouldn't be too bad a trade off. Honestly though, unless this guy is pretty desperate for pitching I don't really see this trade as having a lot of upside for him. You might be better off simplfying your approach and only going for one of the two and form a trade that way.
the guy i want to trade with is an absentee manager. he hasn't done a thing since the draft. our commissioner told us we could offer trades that were fair, and the league would vote. he'd make the roster moves.
would it be smarter to go after ryan zimmerman and matt kemp instead of reynolds and granderson? kemp is a downgrade from granderson, while zimmerman is an upgrade to reynolds.

I like it. I say propose the trade. I'm not a huge fan of Davis; I'm not doubting his tremendous upside, but it may take him another year to truly fulfill it. And Fukudome is not the greatest fantasy option, especially in such a deep outfield class.
Go for it. Reynolds can provide you some power and Granderson is a multi-category stud.
If Ozzie Smith can make the Hall, why can't Rey Ordóñez?
This is a tough one. I don't know what the other team has or needs. It looks like you afford getting rid of Jurrjens, and Granderson is definitely better than Fukudome. If you're in a keeper league, you might want to keep Davis. If not, pull the trigger and see what happens.
