Trying to trade for Fielder, WHIR!

Postby redkanefox2009 » Fri May 25, 2012 11:34 am

I was offered this trade, but I don't think I'm getting good value for the guys I'm giving up. How can I sweeten the deal for me? Is asking for CJ Wilson too much? I like Cain, he's a workhorse. Would it make sense to give him Zimmerman instead? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm in a 10 team H2H league.

I Give: Konerko, Kipnis, Viciedo, Cain
I Get: Fielder, Kendrick, LaHair, Capuano

My Team:
C Carlos Ruiz
1B Paul Konerko
2B Jason Kipnis
3B Miguel Cabrera

SP Justin Verlander
SP Matt Cain
SP Jordan Zimmermann
RP Brandon League
RP Sergio Santos

This is what I would try. I think the other deal has too many players that don't mean anything in the deal.

I like what the previous poster said. When you get that many guys involved it gets so complicated to try to work that deal off. Figure out what is most important to you (what are you trying to accomplish with this trade?) Figure that out and go after the players that help you the most in accomplishing that.

My main goal is obviously Fielder. Looking at my team, is this a trade worth making? Thanks for all the help!!

"I Give: Konerko, Kipnis

I don't know. Seems like it will be tough to ask for an upgrade at both positions involved. I usually agree that less is more, but if you can get Lahair for basically a free agent in a 10 teamer (Viciedo), why not do it? Yea he's due for regression, but his power is for real.

I love fielder, so I keep clicking on these trades. Seems like it has improved substantially from the last one that was posted by you.

Kendrik is NOT an upgrade over Kipnis. So I would try that deal.

Or maybe try Konerko and Cain for Fielder and Wilson.
