Received a trade offer for Ryan Howard?

Postby FooteNasty » Tue Apr 03, 2012 12:42 pm

So a guy in my league wants to stash Ryan Howard, but I already have him. He's interested in offering me some keeper prospects (in my league, everyone with under 3 yrs major league service is a keeper, so prospects are actually "valuable"). He wants to offer me Jameson Taillon, I told him no to offer up at least one more. My options are Jameson Tailoon and either Julio Teheran, Travis d'Arnaud, Jurickson Profar, or Manny Machado.

Any of those sound good/fair? I am not that all convinced that Howard will do anything this year once he finally comes back except probably hit near .200 and maybe smack 15 HR's, so I am inclined to move him. . .

I'm not real big on Howard this year or going forward, personally I'd rather have Taillon and Profar.

He's going to hit better than .200, I can promise you that. What are those other guys going to do for you? Who would you put on your DL instead of Howard? Seems like you have a guy you can use in Howard when he comes off the DL, and you're trading for 2 guys who do nothing? I wouldn't even want those guys taking up my roster space. Are you in a 20+ team league with 40 man rosters and no DL? If that's the case then I take the trade.

I would take Machado and Taillion. I am amazed that you are getting those kind of prospects in return for him. I play in two dynasty leagues and there is no way I would get one of those players for a healthy Howard let alone two for an injured Howard.
