Am I offering to much? - 2 for 4 trade

Postby justnotcricket » Thu Apr 14, 2011 9:58 am

I have just offered the following trade (on e-mail) to my friend in our league. We are both rookies and want to hep each other not rip each other off:

I give: Kimbrel, Izturis, Hellickson & Myers
I receive: Carlos Gonzales & Pablo Sandoval

My thinking is that i need more depth in my batting line up and he needs more pitching. I figure i can pick up more saves and another SP from the wire and i still have the two best SP in the league with Guthrie playing well and Morrow due off DL v.soon. Am i offering too much? Really appreciate your thoughts. Cheers, JNC

Well good luck this season as a rookie...Just from looking at the trade, I do not think it would fly over well with the league, even if you two were both okay with it...CarGo is just too good and ranked too high for it to pass with the likes of Hellickson and Kimbrel...

You would have to add Choo to the mix in order to get CarGo without too much complaining from the league to make it fair(er)

hope it helps.

You are ripping him off. CarGo is a first round draft pick and should net something close to that in return. You are pretty much giving him 2 back of the rotation type pitchers a nice RP and a bench player. Very few people would accept that trade.

Thank you - is it a fair deal for the two of us though?

OK - Lookng at my lineup what would you suggest i offered to get CarGo that is fair for both of us? He wants Kimbrel and some batting flexibility and has poor SP. Really appreciate your help.

It's a HEIST! it is so one sided that I had to look at your post title again to see if I missed the sarcasm.

If you gave up Rios, Kimbrel and either Hellickson or Morrow it would be a good trade for those two.
