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