Trade Cain for Raburn ---- WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Thu May 05, 2011 6:33 pm

I posted seeking OF help this morning, and I have a trade on the table proposed to me for me giving up Cain and receiving Raburn. I just about rejected it instantly, but I figured I'd post to make sure I'm not being an idiot. (I've looked exactly like one for too much of the season.) Chris Carpenter was just let down to waivers, so if I did this trade, I'd try to snag him.I'm mid-priority, so I'd probably not get him.

Anyway, WHIR if you leave me a link. :)

The league is 12 team H2H.

Neat page.

I figured as much on the trade. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed something obvious. :P

Your initial feelings were right on point - reject this deal without hesitation.

Good call. your OF actually looks terrific, btw.

Grab Carpenter off waivers and drop Kennedy, IMO.

Help with mine, please? :-) viewtopic.php?f=26&t=429664
