First he offered Frank Francisco for Madison Bumgarner. I countered with Lance Lynn for Aroldis Chapman. His current offer is Chapman for Jordan Zimmerman. Baseball monster has Chapman currently ranked 15th in our league format and Zimmerman 64th.
But I just can't wrap my head around the idea of Chapman being more valuable. I know Chapman could be a Starter someday. But being realistic there's gotta be some regression due on his current stats, right?

My trading Partner's Pitching Staff
Nolasco
Humber
Hanson
Porcello
Neftali Feliz
Samardzjia
Jurrjens(minors)
Pineda(DL)
Minor Leaguers
Tallion
Paxton
Montgomery
So I guess my question is would you do Zimmerman for Chapman Straight up in a dynasty league, or would you ask for some additional Starting Pitching in return

Quite honestly, I foresee J-Zimm's long-term (not to mention current) value as being greater than Chap's. I wouldn't do it unless the Chap side is throwing in a pretty tantalizing sweetener.

Keep Zimm. Sure Chapman can be a top notch setup man but who knows if he ever translates that success into a solid SP if he gets the chance. Stay with the known commodity.

Keep Zimmerman. He has more potential as a SP.

You have to keep Zimmermann in this deal... You have to take the sure thing here.

Horrible deals for you. No RP is worth a Bumgarner/Zimmermann/Lynn right now.
