With A-Rod's recent surge of awesomeness in the playoffs, I've been shopping him around and found a team interested in making a deal.
Just a little background about my league and team:
5x5 scoring (OBP instead of BA), h2h
C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, UTL, 3 OF, 4 SP, 2 RP, 5 BENCH
6 keepers, 2 minor leaguers
I inherited an absolute crap team and with trades involving my 1st, 2nd, 4th round picks in 2010, I managed to get these keepers: Alex Rodriguez, Dustin Pedroia, Troy Tulowitzki, Joey Votto, Matt Holliday, Jon Lester, with Colby Rasmus and Madison Bumgarner in the minors
The offer is:
I give: A-Rod and a 3rd round pick in 2011
I get: Miguel Cabrera, Jonathan Broxton, and a 13th round pick in 2010
By giving up A-Rod, I get a top 5 1st baseman who puts up numbers similar to Rodriguez, but is also alot younger. I also get a top 3 closer for many years to come in Broxton. I can always trade Votto for a 3rd in either 2010 or 2011, so giving up a 3rd rounder doesn't matter in my opinion. What do you guys think? Should I pull the trigger?
