Who to drop or trade?

Postby guyincognito » Sun Aug 18, 2013 10:41 am

Betancourt came back yesterday so I have to drop someone or make a lopsided trade in order to clear space so that my roster is not illegal. I'm thinking Archer will be the one to drop, however, I sent an offer to the K.Jansen owner of Papelbon and Betancourt for Jansen, and we have engaged in a dialog. He does not want Betancourt, so he is looking for one of my OFs plus Paps for Jansen. I just don't know if it's worth it to give him an OF. I tried giving him WIeters, but he doesn't want Wieters, he needs an OF. Would you package an OF with Papelbon for Jansen or would you just drop Archer (or someone else)? I looked to see if there was anyone else on his roster worth grabbing and the only guy I could see as being useful to me would be B.Butler, so would you send an OF, Papelbon plus one more piece for Jansen and Butler? Need to make decision before start of today's games. Please help and thanks in advance for your help!!!

I'd be willing to send him Pap/Victorino for Jansen.

I agree with the previous poster. Victorino would be the outfielder I would be willing to package with Papelbon.

Victorino and Papelbon for Jansen is a good move (if that's the Dodgers closer go for it).

I agree with the other guys. Jansen is a stud and Paps/Victorino is fair value.

please help
