I never believe in overpaying for closers but you could use one I guess. I mean if you trade Lee for a 1b who would be exactly. I don't your pitching can stand the hit of losing Lee honestly. Moreland is a solid contributor if you are in a deeper league. Rizzo hasn't done much recently but he will end up with solid numbers. If you had another ok 1b (like Laroche, Freeman, Craig etc I would do it, but since you don't I think you should pass on the trade. I mean its not bad, but with your team makeup you can't really afford to deal Rizzo away and then be forced to deal your ace for a replacement which would all but deplete your pitching. With Lee he is your undisputed ace and you have solid pitching with him. The onyl way I'd deal Lee is if you could get a young 1b like Freeman AND a good young arm liek a Miller (for example to lead your staff for the future).

Rasto - since you have Profar (Franklin is expendable honestly). Segura is a good young SS. I mean Prince, Profar, Segura, MCab is just sick.

The onyl way I'd deal Lee is if you could get a young 1b like Freeman AND a good young arm liek a Miller (for example to lead your staff for the future).

I see your point and that is what I told him. He is valuable to my team as my only 1b which is why I am valuing him more. I took over this team for a freind and am now trying to rebuild it. So far I moved Kimbrel and got Castro, did this so I could then move Andrus and Montero and get Posey and Davis. Not huge trades for me but got pieces for future I wanted. I offered him, and I knew it was not best, Rizzo and Heyward for Straus and J Upton since he OF was stacked, but he would have none of that.

The guy who wants Lee has Davis at first and j zimm and iwakuma in his rotation, so was thinking something along those lines with Lee. I am not looking to win this year at all as I sit 8th and just want to get ready for next year. I am trying this year but gotta be realistic. Who I really want for Lee is Fielder but not sure that would happen. The guy really wants Rizzo so maybe if I hold off I can get a little more. Chapman was not my go to guy in this trade it was Straus so he could be my Ace next year with Lee aging, all though I might be jumping gun on that. Still was my plan none the less. The problem with the guy I am trading with is that he feels you need to win a trade in order for it to be good. Trying to get him to see that what helps a team out is more important but greed is powerful. My main fault here is that I want Straus. Thanks for your advice
