Trade Proposed to me - ACab + for my Pujols + --- WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 6:33 pm

I recently told a manager I was interested in Asdrubel Cabrera or Tulo. He sent me back the following trade.

HIS ACab + Humber + Moreland
for
MY Pujols + Bonifacio + Worley

I'm thinking about countering leaving my side the same and changing his side to ACab + Cruz... I could even toss in Alexei Ram. as well and grab JJ Hardy as a backup... He does have Weeks, but I don't think he will trade Weeks and Cabrera...

So, how is this for a counter? Pujols + Bonifacio + Alexei Ram + Worley for ACab + Cruz? EDIT - TULO + CRUZ instead.

After the trade, I could grab a WW SP (that's what Worley is to me) and slide Freeman/Morse over to first.

Love all your opinions and WHIR!

My team is as follows...

The league is 12 team H2H.

I just don't like either of them ... I think it's selling too low on Pujols. Granted, Asdrubel is good, but I think I need to at least be nabbing Tulo if I am giving up Pujols. Counter with Tulo instead IMO.

thanks for your help with mine.

If youre going to give up Pujols you need to get a proven at least top 20 guy in return and you arent getting that. I wouldnt do this deal

1 Butler/Davis/Hosmer/Dunn
2 Young/Utley/Zobrist
3 Moustakas

I dont like this deal because you would be giving up the best player by far.
