Is this a good offer for Longoria? WHIR

Postby footballisbetter.com » Mon Apr 18, 2011 11:18 pm

I am looking to try to get Longoria. This is a 10 team h2h daily lineup league.

I was thinking my Weeks, D Ortiz and P Alvarez for his Longoria and A Gorden.

Is that too much, fair, or not enough?

Here is my roster as of right now
C- R Martin
1st- Morneau
2nd- Weeks
SS- Tulo
3rd- P Alvarez
OF- Ellsbury
OF- Braun
OF- M Holliday
U- D Ortiz
Bench- Cuddyer, Abreu, B Roberts, J Lowrie
DL- K Morales
SP- C Lee, Gallardo, Lilly, Kuroda, D Hudson
RP- Feliz, Hanrahan, Walden

I would personally never trade Longoria for those guys. I think you'd have to give away someone better. Weeks could certainly be enticing, but Alvarez has really little value right now.

Maybe trading Holliday and Alvarez for Longoria could work...Weeks will not...

Otherwise I dont see you acquiring Longoria without giving up a top of the line player.

It will take more than that. If the owner of Longoria has waited this long for him, then he isn't about to trade him when Longoria should be back in a week or so. First round picks are generally hard to trade for especially for a discount. Owners usually don't want to give up too quickly on a guy that had such high hopes for.

It would be a good offer for you if you get Longoria. I think it will probably take a top tier player to get him to make a trade though. Gordon is also a hot player right now so his price is at his peak.
