BIG TRADE with 1st place team

Postby garretterik » Mon Aug 13, 2012 1:30 am

I have charged to take 2nd and have been back in forth with first place team (currently 1 pt out again) last few weeks. The first place team is trade crazy. Do I take either of these offers? Or counter with something else?
1. My Bourn/Cespedes/Cueto/Bumgartner for
His CarGo/Willingham/Dempster/Wilson
He earlier through out:
2. My Bourn/Cueto/Peavy for
His CarGo/CWilson/Quintana

To me either of these trades center on Wilson. He should be a top 10 pitcher, but lately has been playing like one of the ten worst in the league. Can he rebound the last month? What aboutCarGo? When Tulo comes back do the numbers go back up?

3. Also,there is great stuff on my ww. I was thinking of droping Harvey or Nova for Marchado and/or someone else:
Bats: Machado, Rutledge, CGomez, Ruggiano, SMarte, Morneau, EYoung, CCrawford, Venable, Gomes, CLee, Chipper, Cain, Ichiro, Span, ARodDL, BonifacioDL, PlouffeDL
Arms: MorrowDL, McCarthy, Detwiler, Milone, Hughes, Medlen, Minor, Morales, Straily, JParker, CashnerDL
Closers: FFrancisco, Cischek, Cook, Downs, Perkins/Burton, Thayer/Gregerson, Affeldt, SRomo, WLopez, Rauch

I would pass. Why mess with it and I do not like these trade half your player deals. Stick with what is working imo and if you need to plug a hole then make a 1 for 1 or 2 for 1 deal concentrating on it. Don't try to exchange 4 or 5 players each in some twisted sort of thing.
