Quick Trade... Seeking Advice (WHIR)

Postby etl1692 » Wed May 01, 2013 1:02 pm

Looking to do a 2 for 1 deal, because I need to activate Zimm, but dont have the balls to drop anyone. A team was interested in League, and also stated he needs a 1B (KOnerko), so I am wondering which players to go after? Which trade seems most reasonable that he will take it?

I give: Konerko and LEague
I get: _______________

Nelson Cruz (Love this guy, but will he accept this?)
Dexter Fowler (not much on him)
Tommy Milone

Thats really all that catches my eye. Thanks guys!

C: Miguel Montero
1B: Joey Votto *
2B: Dustin Pedroia
3B: Kyle Seager

I wouldnt do that trade. Konerko is off to a slow start but he's pretty much .290-25hr-85rbi hitter so he will come around. League looks like he has good job security so far as he has only blown 1 save opp. You can get a lot more than cruz, fowler, or milone for those two IMO

you could maybe target weiters since montero is playng so bad, i dropped him for russell martin in my league. Or you can try to see if he's willing to trade bruce due to his power outage. only 1 hr so far this season

Try for Bruce, it's worth a shot. I wouldn't take Wieters or any of the other guys for that package.

Im with ^^^ those guys. Obvi go for bruce even if that means adding a little more. But I also would do the two you mentioned for cruz. Cruz and zimm over league and konerko. I agree he is great, but he is also past that age, time to digress.

Awesome guys!

'Thanks... So he will accept the trade tomorrow, he is gonna make room for the trade now. Do you guys think I made out overall?

Adding Jay Bruce, and made room for Zimm to come back.

Gave away an old man and a closer. LOL Im happy. Thanks again.
