David Ortiz for Andre Ethier?

Postby Mateo de Lorenzo » Tue Jul 05, 2011 12:06 pm

I was offered Ortiz for Ethier in my h2h dynasty league. I am in sixth place out of twelve (top 8 go to playoffs) and am looking to beef up my team a little bit. My assumption on this is an automatic denial. However, I am curious about a counter offer. Other manager is rebuilding. I will list our rosters below. I am Bud Selig's Bums and he is Team DL

I would ask for Sandoval to better your 3B and see if you can send him some pitching help.

Saying that he wanted to give you Ortiz for Ethier straight up, it's going to take more then Worley and Bumgarner to get Sandoval unless he's really desperate for pitching. I would think it's gonna take one of your better starters and Bumgarner to get Sandoval.

If you can get that trade I would definitely do it.

Thanks for all the help everybody. I screwed up and accidently accepted the trade instead of offering a counter offer. Now I am trying to talk people into vetoing it for me. Any idea how many votes I need in a 12 team league? I vetoed, and so did two others. So, that is three so far. One manager (maybe two) have abandoned the league and the commish seems to be playing three teams in the league, which is odd in itself. Commish is mad at me for declining his trade but accepting another which he thought was a worse deal for me, so I doubt he will veto any for me. Alright, I just needed to vent.
