I mean I would try to get Alexei as he is a way better fantasy player this season, but he's coming fresh off a huge game last night, so I'm not entirely sure how much luck you would have trying to get that deal. You could try throwing Bruce in as well and see if he takes that.

I definitely see that as being an option...depending on who the other players involved would be , but yes I think that would be a solid move. Any thoughts on a package though, and what are the chances of a deal getting done with that owner? Because if not you may have to go another route. Good luck!

C M. Montero 1B I. Davis 2B D. Pedroia 3B A. Beltre SS A. Ramirez OF C. Granderson OF J. Tabata OF H. Pence UT R. Ibanez UT B. Francisco UT P. Alvarez BN C. Beltran BN M. Byrd BN J. Loney
SP R. Halladay SP J. Zimmermann SP M. Scherzer RP C. Marmol RP M. Rivera P R. Romero P T. Lilly P C. Billingsley BN E. Volquez BN A. Sanchez
This seems like it would be a solid swap...Bruce and Jeter for Alexei and Pence...?? Bruce is obviously in a better lineup but Pence can sometimes just be an offensive machine regardless of the team around him. Any specific player(s) you would like/want from his team that intrigue you enough to make an offer?
I would make a significant run at Roy Halladay ... I won back-to-back championships when I owned that guy. But I am not keen on losing Felix or Lincecum really. Hanson and Jeter might be building blocks. Any ideas?

Got me stumped there because I own him and I would need A LOT to trade him away...likely won't bite for anything less than Felix or Lincecum even if you jam pack other players in there...u could try though...Hanson, Jeter nd either CarGo or Crawford for Halladay, Alexei and a scrub OF...maybe not exactly that but he would definitely expect a TOP player back in return (again, not necessarily CarGo or Crawfod but see if you could gauge what he would be asking for)

Definitely..but I can still almost guarantee 100% that he wouldn't do it for that, regardless of how much he likes Jeter, so depending on the reaction from that you can probably see whether you would have to up Bruce to someone else ya kno?
