Looking to make a big trade

Postby KosherK » Mon Aug 08, 2011 6:46 pm

I'm in the first year of a Points Based Keeper League - I'm fighting for one of the top three spots and I'm looking to make a trade with a guy who has openly conceded his season. We only get to keep 6 guys at the end of the season and I have a pretty good lineup so I'll be dropping a few gems either way.

The deal I'm thinking is to offer:

Jose Reyes & David Price (and maybe another small piece)

for:

Starlin Castro, Ervin Santana, and Jokim Soria

He gets the one of top SS in the league (but one who is injured and may miss significant time this season - I get an up and coming stud SS) - he can keep Price if he wants (but i won't be).

Just as an FYI my other keepers are from the list of:

Zobrist
Kemp
M. Young
McCutchen
D. Jennings
Sabathia

So I figure I keep 5 of them and Castro or just those 6 (might drop Jennings and hope to pick him up in the draft

For pitching I also have:
Ian Kennedy
Anibal Sanchez
Cory Luebke
Matt Harrison
Zach Grienke

Any thoughts would be really appreciated

p.s. My league scoring is as follows

Guess it would come down to if the other team is in contention. If they have a good lead they may do it, if they are out of the playoffs, probably a better chance of it getting done.

Ya he's out - he just sent a mail out asking if anyone wants to trade cause he's done - so I figure he'll want a good keeper (Reyes) might not do much for the rest of the season but he'll be solid next year (he might keep Price too but I'm not sure)

I like it. I think if I were out of it and looking to build for next season I would want some top keepers and Reyes and Price are that.

please help
