Should I go the route Element suggested:

Fielder
pick

for

1st
3rd


Is that more realistic?


Yes, this is much more reasonable. You wouldn't be trading away all of your picks so you would still have a good chance of drafting a guy who could become a decent keeper for you. And if you aren't in it to win it in 2012, upgrading your keeper list is fine.

Update on this. I provided the revised trade and it was rejected. The guy ended up getting this for Fielder:

Fielder
17th
17th
18th
18th

for

1st
2nd
2nd
3rd
7th

The guy is trying to ransack you. See if you can find another trade partner for a solid upgrade at keeper to either get a better deal or to bounce off of this rabid manager you're dealing with.

He's really giving you the shaft here. I wouldn't counter anymore until he decides to come closer to a fair price. I'd just send a polite email stating that you guys a VERY far apart and that you need to concentrate on trading a good pick or two elsewhere to get a fairer price on keeper upgrade. Be courteous and say you just can't afford to waste too much time seeing the gap is so huge. If he wants a couple of your picks instead of seeing them go to someone else he'll make a decent proposal (those suggested on page 1 are fair). If he doesn't come around it's his loss not yours.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

With only 4 keepers, and Espinosa as one of them, you need to trade some picks for a legit keeper.

Let me explain, he just traded Fielder to someone else and that is what he got in compensation.

Good for him then. Way too much IMO. I wouldn't have done that.
