Trade offer to get Pujols

Postby ridetheline » Thu May 16, 2013 1:06 pm

We're in a 10 team keep 8 league that you can hold onto guys forever at no cost.

I was just offered:
Pujols, Brett Lawrie, Josh Rutledge, and Kris Medlen

for:

Dustin Pedroia & Madison Bumgarner

I'm thinking I'm going to counter asking for Joey Votto. Is that ridiculous to think? I know Medlen has started rough, but I expect him to finish top 75 or so. Or would you even accept the trade as is?

I hate that trade, there is no need. You'd be basically giving up the 2nd and 3rd best players in the deal getting back a risky Pujols (which you don't need oyu haev Goldschmidt) taking a sizable downgrade to your 2b or MI and you have Longo so Lawrie is unneeded. I like Rutledge and Medlen..maybe you could get those 2 for some spare change on your roster. Maybe markakis and morrow for his medlen and rutledge (this is a fair offer).

Completely agree; I think Goldschmidt may be more valuable than Pujols this year, and is more valuable in this type of keeper league.

Yeah, for Pujols I don't like it, but I was more curious about exploring it for Votto. However, SP is the obvious disappointment on my team, and it's hard to take on another disappointing starter for my only truly good one.

Don't think this trade improves you at all.

Already been said, but I'll say it again. Bad bad trade. Goldy is your 1B for the future. Lawrie is trash and Rutledge/Medlen are decent. Pedroia is one of the top 2B and 2B is not deep, MadBum is only getting better.
