He says he will add Harrison to the deal too. Does that make it a deal? Or should I not give up Cain and Simmons?

I'm not a fan of either of these trades to be honest. But I by default don't like trades that involve more players than I can count on one hand. However...

Honestly you're trading so many players in both trades that both trades make sense. I think I like the first one better, you don't have to give up much to get Crawford/Alvarez who both have really good value in deep leagues. But, I'm a Crawford believer, he could just as easily get hurt.

I'm not a fan of the 2nd trade...for such a deep league you're giving up a lot of young talent.

Hey. Sorry for the late reply. I was out of the country.
I think that I liked the original deal a little better as well. Gets a little messy with all of these players involved. Although Kershaw is a stud pitcher, you just might lose a little long term depth with the new deal.

Ok, so at your guys' advice I asked for the original offer and he said he would either do:

HIS Crawford, Alvarez, Strailey, Forsythe for MY Zobrist, Lynn, Cobb, Morrison

Or he would add Harrison to the deal if I add Andrelton Simmons.

Would you take the first offer or give up Simmons too to get Harrison?

I like the first offer better than the second as well, but I don't think I would do either. I would try to put another package together if the guy is anxious to make a trade. I'm not really sold on either of those options. Just my .02.

Losing Zobrist and his multi position eligibility might sting, but you are getting a real nice haul back. I prefer the first deal then the second cause you wouldn't lose two nice guys (Cain & Simmons) at cheap deals.

But the second offer is not to bad, your getting a stud ACE for $25 in Weaver, to team up with Cain already in your rotation. ;-D

The only one I'd be inclined to accept is his very first offer.

Should I add Simmons to get Harrison though?
