Trade was offered to me:
I get: Jose Valverde, Cody Ross
I give: Nelson Cruz

Now, I could really use a closer. My RP is probably the weakest position, though Cook/Reed/Holland have been holding their own. The problem is that Harper is slumping big time, and the guy just added Cody Ross a week ago. If I wanted him I could have had him. This doesn't seem like enough for Nelson Cruz right?

Here are some of the other options I'd want for his team, if anyone's interested in helping me put together a counteroffer:
Gio Gonzalez
Huston Street
Ernesto Frieri
James McDonald
Chris Perez
Tommy Hanson (DL, will return August 15th)
Max Scherzer

He also has Cole Hamels and Matt Cain, but they're probably both untouchable.

Maybe a counter of:
I give Nelson Cruz
I get: Scherzer/Hanson/McDonald, and Street/Perez

Do you think Street and Scherzer for Cruz is a low ball on my part?

Thanks in advance, and leave your link!!

This is a H2H points league so never pay for closers! I would say no deal.
