My VMart and Verlander for Oswalt and Morneau

Postby KingOfSports » Fri Jun 03, 2011 4:45 pm

Just got offered this trade. I'm 4-4 in a 12 player league. It's h2h points. My team is listed below the trade offer

I GET:
Roy Oswalt
Justin Morneau

I GIVE:
Victor Martinez
Justin Verlander

MY TEAM:
POSITION PLAYERS:
Catcher: Victor Martinez (DET)
First Base: Carlos Pena (CHC), Adam Lind (TOR)(DL15)
Second Base: Dustin Pedroia (BOS)
Shortstop: Hanley Ramirez (FLA), Erick Aybar (LAA)
Third Base: Aramis Ramirez (CHC)
Outfield: Logan Morrison (FLA), Raul Ibanez (PHI), Michael Bourn (HOU)

STARTING PITCHERS:
Jon Lester (BOS)
Justin Verlander (DET)
Rick Porcello (DET)
Josh Tomlin (CLE)
Bartolo Colon (NYY)
Zach Britton (BAL)
Jake Arrieta (BAL)
Kevin Correia (PIT)
Erik Bedard (SEA)
Brandon Beachy (ATL) (DL15)
Homer Bailey (CIN) (DL15)

RELIEF PITCHERS:
Joakim Soria (KC)
Craig Kimbrel (ATL)
Drew Storen (WAS)

I'm thinking about saying no because:
1) Verlander is better than Oswalt
2) I don't need 3 1Bs
What do you think?

No way you accept that. Who knows what you get in Morneau, could be a whole lot of nothing. I think VMart will have a huge second half, since he's DH'ing and hitting in a pretty good lineup. Verlander is a potential Cy young..... Oswalt's velocity is down, as are his K's. There is no upside to this deal.

Yeah I declined. He told me to counteroffer, but Vmart is my only catcher and Verlander is my ace so there's no way im giving both of them up unless Bautista/Braun are involved.
