UPDATED---Swisher for Cain-- counteroffering what? ---- WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Fri May 06, 2011 9:33 am

Once again, someone responded to my offer of SP for OF. The current offer on the table is their Swisher for my Cain. I'd rather trade Cain for a higher ranked OF. He has Victorino and Ethier. I wouldn't mind adding one of my bats (Roberts? Francouer? Berkman?--really don't want to trade him?) as a throw in to get it through. I'd offer 2 pitchers, but he's stacked.

My other idea is to offer my Nolasco for his Tabata. (could do Swisher as well, but I'd prefer Tabata. If you think otherwise, please share why.) I do need the help in steals, and Nolasco has pitched very well so far this year.

I like the Tabata trade personally. I'd be happy to hear anyone's thoughts on the matter.

Thanks! WHIR if you leave a link.

--In summary--

Offered
my Cain for his Swisher

C/offer I like most
my Nolasco for his Tabata

Other C/offers I want opinions on
my Nolasco for his Swisher

my Cain+Roberts/Berkman for his Victorino/Ethier

Once again, thanks a bunch for reading. ;-D

No thanks. You are giving the three best players in the deal. And really not sure I would try and counter if that is the kind of offer he is sending out there.

Yeah, that trade isn't even worth the time it takes to hit reject. You can try a counter-proposal, but that's not really a serious offer.

He took the offer back and offered Swisher for Cain 1 to 1. At least that's a serious offer, although I'm probably going to try and tweak it.

I'll post back before the end of the night for anyone who has or will post.

Allright

First post completely updated. Looking for thoughts on my counteroffer ideas.

As always, I WHIR 100% before I hit the sack tonight.
