Got offered a trade...

Postby dark2025 » Mon Jun 25, 2012 8:46 pm

Not sure what some of these players' values are currently so I figured I'll ask you guys.

I'm in a 10 team points keeper league, currently ranked 3rd.

He wants my Altuve, Rasmus, and Bauer for Konerko, Ethier, and Gallardo.

I'm doing pretty well so far so I'm not in a hurry to trade, but what do you guys think? Is that offer any good?

Nah, I'd stay put if I were you. No way I'd want to give up that kind of youth/talent/upside for the now numbers of Konerko and an Ethier I think will only trend down from here on out. Maybe if you were getting a young potential stud for the big "now" bat of Konerko in some kind of package I'd consider it, but I just don't like seeing names like Altuve (who I love), Rasmus (who I absolutely think is for real) and a potential ace in Bauer for an aging group of veterans. It's not a horrible deal, just not the kind I like to take in a league like this. If you want to win now, I'd ask for more than Ethier - who is such a mirage IMO, because his HRs are not elite and he doesn't score runs or steal bases for anything.

Thanks, I've got Cano + Kinsler already at 2nd and Morse at 1st so Konerko could be an upgrade, but yeah I'd hate to lose those young guys for a couple of guys I'm not going to keep (most likely). Actually who would you rather have on the pitching side, Gallardo or Bauer? Or is there too much of a difference to compare them straight up?

The other manager really wants Rasmus and Altuve it seems, he's mentioned something about offering his Billy Butler instead of Ethier too, but I don't know if it's any different.
