10 team Dynasty League where we each took over the rosters of a National League Team and an American League team and made cuts and trades etc. We have a FA bidding coming up and have full minor league rosters.
I have the Giants and the Twins and have an ok starting rotation with Lincecum anchoring it. Of course I have had offers for him but I have to blown away with an offer to consider trading him. Anyway, I just got offered Jake Peavy, John Danks and Bobby Jenks for Timmy. Do you think this is enough for him?
Yeah, I'd definitely like to see you get more than that package. I'm not very high on Danks. If there were a way to get a true high upside talent (Ubaldo?) and a more solid closer (Soria?), then I think it's worth it.
I like this better, though I'm not completely sold on it. Sabathia is certainly more of a sure thing, but is obviously a step down from Timmy. I love Nolasco and he's just the sort of high upside guy I'd want to see you get in return. The only thing is that I'd like to see you get something more useful for the 3rd guy. Even if it's not a closer, hold out for something a little better.... post the guys' roster?
Now he is backing out and saying that all he would be giving up for Lincecum is CC and Nolasco. Is that fair value. He is also interested in my Ells which is pretty untouchable and Reimold. What do you guys think? Any help is appreciated.
Hmmm. That's unfortunate. The deal still might be worth doing, but only if you truly believe Nolasco will be a force next season. Personally, I do, but there are some question marks. Maybe you can ask for Josh Johnson instead. he's more of a sure thing, but the year less on his contract might make it unappealing anyway.
I'm not huge on Reimold as I think that he's already reached his upside so mabye you can send him for someone a little more exciting. Personally, I'm a big fan of Chris Coghlan especially since he should get 2B eligibility. I know you have Uggla, but his AVG really does suck and you might be able to move him for the closer you want. Everth Cabrera is also very interesting and would allow you to do the same thing.
Thanks for all of your help. Let me know if you need any more.
