is this a fair trade to offer? would you accept?

Postby bperiard » Tue Jun 05, 2012 10:15 pm

I want to acquire G. Stanton. I'm currently in 1 st place in my 12 man H2H mixed leagues. I offered the other team, Ortiz/Strasburg for Stanton/CJ Wilson. Would you accept this trade? Do you think I should offer more? If so, who else from my roster would you offer to sweeten the deal, Thanks
Here is the rest of my squad:
C Posey
1st Freeman
2nd A. Craig
3rd Lawrie
SS H. Ramierez
IF B. LaHair
OF Hamilton
OF Braun
OF Joyce
UTI Ortiz
UTI Trout
UTI Adams
BN Rizzo
SP Strasburg
SP Wainright
SP Bumgartner
SP J.Parker
RP L. Lynn
RP S. Santos
RP Wilhelmson
P Hellickson
P S. Diamond
p B. Norris
p S.downs
BN T. Bauer
DL D. Robertson

This isn't enough to get the deal done, especially given that Ortiz is only eligible at DH. Throw in Bryan Lahair and see if he'll bite, but I still doubt that'll work. Could also throw in Matt Adams or Scott Diamond to see if he's interested.

Help with mine?

I own Stanton, and If I were him, I wouldn't accept the trade. Ortiz's ceiling isn't as high as Stanton's. If you really believe what the Washington organization is saying about an IP limit on Strasburg, then Wilson might have more value towards the end of the season when you need him most. The Angels are just now starting to heat up and Wilson is sure to get a few wins because of that.

What positions does he need to upgrade? I've found 2 for 2 trades rarely get accepted. Offer him what he needs. Maybe throw in Lahair or Joyce as well
