This Guy Really Wants Sizemore and Ike ... Oblige? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Tue Apr 26, 2011 11:38 am

I've received two offers for Sizemore from this one team. I also learned that the owner who had Ike Davis before I did received a number of offers for Ike. So he seems to want both of these guys... I need HR/RBI/AVG so I would only make a move if it helped that.

The first: he gives me Zobrist, I give him Sizemore
The second: he gives me Victor Martinez and Bourjos, I give him Sizemore and Ike Davis

Neither of these deals does it for me. But is there anyone on his team I should be trying to go after with Sizemore as leverage?

I would say no to zobrist, he has his ups and downs. But Sizemore was a top 20 pick before injury and is young enough to recover nicely, I would hold on to him for a little while and see what he can do.
As for the other, its decent but I wouldnt do it with Vmart on the DL with no return time table set, who knows how long he could be out.

Thanks. Do you see anyone on his team that would be worth dangling Sizemore or Davis to acquire?

I like Zobrist so maybe you could get him to throw somebody in like Hanrahan or Farnsworth?

You can always get analysis of these offers by posting them at TradeBashers.com. You can input the players involved and league details and the community votes on the trade. In the end you see exactly what percent of managers prefer one side and what percent prefers the other. Adds some good numbers to a topic, trade offers, that is usually dealt with as almost entirely subjective. Throw a few of the ideas up that you're thinking about and see what people think.
