BIG DEAL w Pujols, Hamilton & Others WHIR

Postby Seanyfever » Tue Jun 21, 2011 12:49 am

I sent the following offer for Pujols... in light in injury.

14 Team League. Head to Head. In 9th year.
11 Keepers. Contracts are 3 years only.
With Buddies Since Tee Ball. Competitive $$$
Built a crazy team w some luck
Contracts Renew When Traded
Contract Expiration Years in ( )
Compete in following 6x6 areas:
OBP H HR RBI R SB
WHIP IP ERA SO W SV

HE GETS: Geovany Soto, Jay Bruce, Michael Young, Craig Kimbrel, Jonny Venters, 6th and 14th Rounds After 11 Keepers
I GET: John Buck, Albert Pujols, Aramis Ramírez, Ubaldo Jiménez, 12th and 13th Rounds After 11 Keepers
* I was willing to fade on catcher involvement and ARam/Young as well.


He countered with the following.....

HE GETS: Geovany Soto, Prince Fielder, Josh Hamilton, Michael Young, C.J. Wilson, Craig Kimbrel, 4th and 5th Rounds After 11 Keepers
I GET: John Buck, Grady Sizemore, Albert Pujols, Aramis Ramírez, Ubaldo Jiménez, Sergio Santos, 11th and 12th Rounds After 11 Keepers


I can't make his counter work. He said we were close on my initial offer, but he has taken several steps from it.
I would like to focus simply on getting Pujols and Ubaldo.


HELP ME SEE THIS THROUGH!!!!

This is a tough one. You are losing Hamilton anyway and I personally I would rather have Bruce. But the prince fielder thing is what has me on the fence. When does Pujols expire for other team?

I don't like either offer, honestly. In a keeper, it may turn out that Bruce is the best player in that deal over the next few years. (Not saying that WILL happen, but saying it's not inconceivable -- and you need Pujols to return from injury with a vengeance for it to be worthwhile.)

I don't like either offer bc I feel he wins in both and you'd be losing a lot. Looking at both rosters, he looks to be more in need than you. I would sit tight for now.

I'd certainly welcome more input. Including what is reasonable in getting Pujols minus his six weeks

Everyone is trying to buy Pujols low. Teams that had him waited out his slow start and will wait this out. I'm really not sure I would want Pujols after he comes back from the injury. It's his left arm, and he puts a lot of torque on that arm.... I really don't see him coming back where he was this year. I would personally stay away from him because it's going to cost you and I'm thinking it's not gonna be worth it.
