Shields or Garza/Minor/Morales for Gallardo/Craig?

Postby Knights » Sat Jul 07, 2012 11:26 am

16-team 6x6 H2H keeper league (6 keepers)

I want Allen Craig, but I also want to beef up my SP - so I'm looking at a package.

Maybe... James Shield or Matt Garza/Mike Minor/Kendrys Morales for Yovani Gallardo/Allen Craig

Is this a decent offer, or too uneven? Shields, Garza and Gallardo are top-end guys, and he needs SP so may take a chance of Minor's potential after his strong start last time out. I like Morales and he seems to be heating up, but Allen Craig is fairly similar but has more postional eligibility.

Let me know what you think... or if I'm stuck in a pipe dream what other kind of offer could I make?

Thanks for the reply on mine. I like the trade. I'd probably rather have Shields than Garza, but if you could get that deal of Garza/Minor/Morales for Gallardo and Craig I would do it.

Thanks for the help on mine. And I would do either one of these. Rather have Shields too but both are very fair trades and big upgrades for you.
