My team is now in panic mode. My pitching has been dominating but my offense has been lagging power especially with HanRam and Cargo slumping big time. I'm last in the home runs category and with the demotion of Franklin i'm running with one closer.
I'm being offered Ike Davis and Heath Bell for Cargo. What should I do?

Reject. Shark. Even slimping, he's worth more. Check wire for saves. Walden, Capps, Madson til lidge returns. I know the type. Should post his team. I know how to get them. Here's how: These guys wont make a deal unless they trick you. Slumping players are one trick, but... those players can have off-years, or totally stink it up. It does happen. So unlike other tricks, he can get burned. One trick is the lopsided offer. That's how you get him. Offer him that appears lopsided in his favor, but isnt all that much.
For now ill use your team and post ideas for CarGo, so you can get the jist of my counter-scam. Pence + KRod for CarGo McCann + Pence for CarGo- A great one. Combined, these will post more numbers than a good CarGo.
Something like that. Ideally 2 good, useful guys thatll be on your lineup always, that combined, will post more stats than CarGo. Heath Bell is a top closer so perhaps Bell + a Pence type or other 2nd Tier, but good OF thats doing well.
Tho, ideally, you'd want to trade Hanley & get 2 good guys for him. Cant be tricked outta Hanley cus he's doing great. And SS is easy to replace.
