In desperate need of a Closer. Trade Offer Help!

Postby soupy56 » Tue Mar 27, 2012 7:32 pm

I put ARod on the Trading block looking for a solid closer and hopefully another hitter. I got a bite but I'm not sure what I should offer him that's not me losing too much. Here's our teams:

Me:
C A. Avila
1B Konerko
2B Pedroia
3B A. Rodriguez
SS. A. Cabrera
OF McCutchen
OF Adam Jones
OF Drew Stubbs
Util Markakis
Util Goldschmidt
BN Trumbo
BN Soriano

SP J. Johnson
SP CJ Wilson
SP T. Hanson
RP Jim Johnson
RP Empty (was Madson)
P E. Santana
P C. Lewis
BN N. Feliz (starter now)
BN Buehrle
BN A. Chapman (if S. Marshall chokes)

Him:
C B. McCann
1B A. Gonzalez
2B H. Kendrick
3B D. Valencia
SS E. Andrus
OF M. Kemp
OF G. Stanton
OF J. Hamilton
Util J. Heyward
Util D. Young
BN A. Pagan
BN P. Polanco

SP CC Sabathia
SP Y. Gallardo
SP G. Gonzalez
RP J. Axford
RP J. Valverde
P M. Garza
P J. Cueto
BN D. Fister
BN J. Nathan

He offered Valverde and Someone else for ARod. What should I offer him that is fair but will also help my team? I obviously need closer help. Much appreciated! ;-D

That looks good to me. Maybe try for Heyward depending on how much he values him.

My problem with this is who do I put at third? I Know Trumbo is making aplay for Third but I wont be able to play him there for a while.

Have him through in Valencia, since he probably will cut him.
If not, cut Buehrle, and pick up a 3B till Trumbo becomes a 3B.
