Adrian Gonz and Verlander in 6 player trade?

Postby wpd4305 » Wed Jul 13, 2011 11:36 pm

I am in a ten team dynasty league. I am in contention for this years championship, but one of the other teams that is in contention just traded for Texiera and Granderson. I have the best hitting lineup in the league but am suffering at pitcher. One of the worst teams in the league offered me Verlander and Adrian Gonz for Clay Bucholtz, Danny Espinosa, Freddie Freeman, and Matt Garza. Should I make the deal or am i trading away too much young talent, since I'm already decent?

Good God man, do this deal now! That is all. Seriously...not even going to get into lengthy explanation, but Verlander/Gonzo are not only still good keepers themselves (while your "young talent" is by no means a lock as a group), they'll prob guarantee your title.

Highway robbery. You aren't even trading away top prospect type players for two of the best players at their positions. Who cares how old they are.

No wonder that guy you might trade with isn't doing so well...

Thanks for the advise guys. We've just made the trade and in our league trades can't get voted down. If two people agree on a trade and they are both staying in the league for the next year, then the trade goes through. Second consecutive championship, here I come!

Congrats. A little concern I'm sure with the Bautista injury, but with that hitting and pitching you really should be unstoppable.
