Help! Bourn/Axford for Ortiz?? WHIR 100%

Postby mzkp54 » Fri Jul 15, 2011 8:52 pm

Alright I think these trade talks are finally wrapping up, thanks for the help everyone

Teams listed in sig. I have a bunch of steals and need RBI. I also need to free up a space for Madson to come back. He wants Bourn and a Axford. Is that good value? I know Axford now has K-rod behind him now, so this is a good move right?

I could also counter Bourn/Trumbo, since Ortiz will have to be Util and I have Tex and Ortiz. But if I did Bourn/Trumbo should I get something more in return?


My team: (1st, 86-43-11)
C- Martin
1B- Votto
2B- Zobrist
3B- Bautista
SS- Aybar
OF- Kemp, Stanton, Bourn
U- Tex, Trumbo
B- Alvarez, Gardner

SP- Haren, Cain, Hanson, Jurrjens, Wandy, Zimmerman, Tomlin
RP- Axford, Cordero, Parnell, Venters
DL- Madson

His team: (6th, 72-55-13)

C- Olivo
1B- Fielder
2B- Espinosa
3B- Walker
SS- Tulo
OF- Berkman, Ichiro, Hart
U- Ortiz, Francoeur
B- R Roberts, J Damon, Snider

SP- Lee, CC, Marcum, Garcia, Latos, Hudson, Collementer, Luebke
RP- Nunez, Farnsworth

Leave a link please, and thanks for the help

I just find it hard to believe that a team with Votto/Bautistia/Teix is having RBI trouble.

How about you throw in Trumbo to go with Bourn/Axford and try and get Travis Snider off the guy?

That gives you Gardner/Snider to rotate in that final OF spot, along with Ortiz into the UTL spot that Trumbo vacates.

Then you still have the free spot to remove Madson from the DL.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Hmm I do like that. I know its hard to believe but I'm 7-7 in RBI and at least 10-4 in all the other offensive categories. I've been winning steals by like 8-10 a week, so I figure its time to move some of that SB. He's doubting Axford because of KRod now, so I'm working on another deal, similar to what you were saying. I feel like my RP are pretty interchangable, so it doesnt really matter to me which he takes
