Do I make this offer? WHIR

Postby baegames » Sun May 05, 2013 8:51 pm

My team is contending, the other team with whom I am trading is already out of it this year. Essentially protectable at $5 more than the given price. 8 team league. May cost a little more if they are protected for more than 1 year.

Want to make the following offer:
GIVE:
Jayson Werth (2)
Starling Marte (1)
Manny Machado (8)
Jose Fernandez (1)
RECEIVE:
Adam Jones (16)
Matt Holliday (14)
Billy Butler (16)
Cliff Lee (19)

Worth it giving up Marte and Machado?

No deal, if you are looking toward the future, why trade away such great chips like Marte and Machado for more expensive older guys. If you are giving up top keepers like those two, you need to be looking at Harper or Trout.

Yes. It is an amazing deal and if you were already contending, then you surely are going to be at the top after this deal. It's rough giving up the youngsters, but the chance to win this year is well worth it. Make the deal.

Hey, thanks for the help with mine. I'd hold off on this one if i were you. Hollidays aging and i wouldn't be willing to give up Marte or Machado for these guys for the long run. Maybe if you really need some help before the trade deadline, but otherwise i wouldn't risk it.

How about if I did not include Marte and Holliday? Which one is more valuable this year?

Definitely would do it then, Butler, Jones, and Lee are all somewhat undervalued.

Well naturally that would be great, but I'd have to imagine without Marte, you're not going to get a deal done.

This.

You need to play for this year. I'm sure you have to have a solid base to continue to contend in future years but if you can make this deal it should go a long way towards giving you a shot at the title this season.

HTH league where they are going 1-9 or 2-8 every week. Yeah, they are out of it. Or at least the odds of them coming back are so low that you make a move now.
