Help me with a trade please... ?!!?

Postby TheGhost » Mon Mar 19, 2012 3:47 pm

So there's another owner in my league that is looking to complete a deal involving (his) Prince Fielder for (my) Robinson Cano. I'm definitely not interested in this trade straight up but would love to be able to construct a package that helps me out.

Sooo... I would definitely need his Cuddyer back in a trade as Cano is my only 2nd baseman. After that, I'm open to any structuring of the deal. 12 teams, yahoo league, redraft, roto, 5x5.

My roster:
C: Buster Posey
1B: Mike Napoli
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: Pablo Sandoval
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera
OF: Martin Prado
OF: Yoenis Cespedes
OF: Kendrys Morales
Utl: Ike Davis
Bench: Dexter Fowler, Alejandro De Aza

SP: Justin Verlander
SP: Cliff Lee
RP: Mariano Rivera
RP: Chris Perez
P: Matt Cain
P: Matt Garza
P: Ubaldo JImenez
Bench: Clay Buchholz, Jair Jurrjens, Scott Baker

His Roster:

C: Miguel Montero
1B: Prince Fielder
2B: Michael Cuddyer
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Elvis Andrus
OF: Matt Holliday
OF: Emilio Bonifaccio
OF: Peter Bourjos
Utl: Adam Lind
Bench: Ryan Roberts, Mike Aviles, Torii Hunter

SP: John Lester
SP: Ian Kennedy
RP: John Axford
RP: Heath Bell
P: Shaun Marcum
P: Ervin Santana
P: Kyle Farnsworth
Bench: Brandon McCarthy, Jim Johnson

What deal should I go after to improve my club?!!? Thank you!!

Does Bonifacio work at 2B? If so what about Fielder and Bonifacio for Cano? Maybe throw in whatever player you would drop if this trade went through. I don't think you need to get any fancier than that.

I don't think bonifacio is eligble for 2b. however I think cuddyer and fielder for cano is a pretty fair trade.

I wouldn't be looking for a "fair" trade. I'd be looking to win the trade. Cano is a more valuable commodity than Fielder simply because of the position he plays, so if I was going to give him up, I'd want to come out ahead in the deal.

See what he thinks about Fielder, Cuddyer, and Bell for Cano and Perez. Perez is garbage and you could use another RP anyway.
