I'm trying to snag Holliday from another owner since my team doesn't drive in enough runs, but need help on what to offer. I offered Drew Stubbs straight up as a negotiations starter, and was rejected, so I'm thinking I'll add a piece on either side to make it a 2 for 2 or 2 for 3 or something like that (I'm also willing to deal Bruce since he has sucked royally since his hot May, but I think he has a chance for another hot streak like last year and he helps me in rbis, so I'd rather lose Stubbs if I had to pick). Can you guys help me come up with a good offer?
I play in a 10 team 5X5 H2H ESPN league, currently in 4th place (and it's tight, I'm 1 game out of second and a half game ahead of the 5th place guy/2.5 ahead of the 6th place guy; the first place guy is uncatchable at this point), he is 9.5 games out of the 4th and final playoff spot.
My roster: Hitters--C Saltalamacchia, 1B Pujols, 2B Kinsler, 3B Prado (will use him as a superutility bench guy when Arod comes back, probably), SS Y Escobar, 1B/3B Lind, 2B/SS M. Young, OF's Braun, N. Cruz, Bruce, Stubbs, Gardner UTIL Alex Gordon (only qualifies as OF in ESPN, not 3B too unfortunately)
Pitchers--P Kershaw, P Greinke, P Morrow, P Scherzer, P Ervin Santana, P Bartolo Colon, P Fister, P Marmol, P Nathan, P Walden, P Madson, P Parnell (we can start 9, no separate slots for RP and SP)
His roster: Hitters--C Olivo, 1B Teixeira (Who I'd love to have, but I figure Holliday is cheaper and has better avg anyhow), 2B Utley, 3B Justin Turner, SS Jeter, 2B/SS Jesus Guzman, 1B/3B Butler, OF's Holliday, Suzuki, Pagan, Pierre, Maybin (plus Cargo just came off the DL for him so he will be dropping a player to activate him), UTIL Dan Uggla, Bench Neil Walker (I guess he likes Guzman better right now, apparently)
Pitchers--P's Carpenter, Cain, J Chacin, A Bailey, S Santos, J Garcia, Ogando, Hanrahan, Gee, W Rodriguez, T Hudson
