Miguel Cabrera for Chris Sale & Giancarlo Stanton? WHIR 100%

Postby LittleTree » Mon Jun 04, 2012 10:10 am

I recently made a trade offer for Miguel Cabrera and was countered with this counter-demand: My Giancarlo Stanton, Chris Sale, and A.J. Pierzynski for his Miguel Cabrera. I believe I am going to reject this trade because I believe it is too much for Miggy. However, I do want to get this deal done. Sale has been unbelievable and his dual eligibility makes him even more valuable in my opinion. However, Miggy is also Miggy and I realize I must give something to get something and I am considering trading Sale while his value is at his highest because part of me wonders if he will be able to keep up this pace all season long. I am looking at offering only two players in return for Miggy. If you look at my roster, I was thinking about offering Sale and Trout for Miggy which I think would be a fair trade. This is a non-keeper league, head-to-head. What do you guys think? Since the other guy needs pitching and I have depth there I was also thinking of making him two offers: #1 being Sale & Trout for Miggy and #2 being Sale and Zambrano for Miggy. If you see any other suggestions to make by looking at my roster I would welcome that too. I need your help guys. I will definitely help in return. Thanks!

I think that first deal is close. Maybe I would add another player on his side and see if you can get something done there. I don't think Trout or Zambrano is going to be enough to get the deal done. I think the first deal more revolves around Stanton than it does Sale. If I owned Sale, I would be looking to deal him right now. His value is about as high as it can get. If you look at Sale's last three starts they were against MIN (one of the worst teams) TB (because of Memorial Day, a good number of starters were not playing) and SEA (one of the worst teams). I think there is going to be some regression here plus there is always the injury concern that almost sent him to the bullpen a month ago.

Totally agree that trading Sale now is the way to go. I would do either Trout or Zambrano with Sale for Miggy if the other guy goes for it. I might even give up all 3 if he'll give you a decent player back....

Help if you can?
