Advice on a big trade please! WHIR WHIR WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Mon Aug 06, 2012 9:22 pm

I am in a 12-team H2H Keeper (6x6) and am looking to go for the title this year. I am trying to pry David Price from a bottom team but he's been stubborn so far. At least one of my starters usually ends up imploding every week, so I really need a bonafide ace on my staff. I am 1.5 games behind 1st place.

He wants a draft pick swap included in this deal. In your opinion, what round pick should I offer and what pick should I receive?

I Give:

Bruce/Hanson/McDonald

I Get:

Melky/Price

My Roster:

C - M Montero
1st - Rizzo
2nd - Kinsler
3rd - Lawrie
SS - Castro
OF - Bruce
OF - Kemp
OF - Ethier
Util - Reddick

Bench: Ortiz (DL)

SPs:

Lester
Bumgarner
Wainwright
Hanson
Harrison
McDonald
Beckett
Bauer

RPs:

Papelbon
Bell
Holland
Perkins
Burton

I think you are giving almost too much as it is. Don't add in a draft pick. If you can make the deal straight up, do it. Otherwise, back away.

Yes, I agree, adding a draft pick is too much. Try and get it straight up.

Please help with mine?

I agree. He's going to want a low pick and that is fair of a trade. Leave it as is you are giving a lot already.
