Guy who traded me Stanton...wants him back WHIR LL

Postby Devil Doc » Wed Jun 08, 2011 8:42 pm

Dude is pretty pissed, there are rumors going around right now that J. Johnson may be done for the year, so he feels I burned him again. I was going to try and send Stanton back, get Hosmer/Hellickson/HanRam/Hudson from him while sending Stanton/Jurjens/Rollins/Oswalt...think this is fair, or am i again, giving up too much? I really think I can take advantage of this, any suggestions?

He's now offering me Hosmer/Hudson for Stanton/Oswalt.

Hudson and Oswalt are pretty much the same to me, to be honest. So it breaks down to Stanton/Hosmer, not sure this is even worth a look. Stanton is proven and is destroying the ball. As much as I like Hosmer, I like stanton even more.

Ideas?

This works out to your advantage quite well. Make him an offer with what you want and if he truly wants Stanton, he will agree.

Just be like, "give me Braun and Price" ;-D

Then don't give up Stanton until you get what you want b/c he clearly wants him.

He'll get desperate soon enough, but I plan on it.

Rollins Oswalt and Stanton for Hanley and Wright see if you can sneak that one by!
You could use a SS upgrade and you need a 3b BADLY. Long term this deal makes sense for you. Hanley's value is as low as its going to get...gotta get timing and strike while the iron is hot.

Bump:

Was thinking of offering him JJ/Oswalt/Rollins/Stanton for Hosmer/HanRam/Hudson.... think this is a good deal for either party?

The players I would target on his team are Lind, Hosmer, Wright, and Hellickson

Or if you can't sell Staton at a premium just try to get JJ back for cheap. Sounds like he now thinks JJ is a nothing. Worst case is you have him to keep next year or trade to someone else to keep next year.
