Approaching Potential Dumpees

Postby C Bass » Wed May 19, 2004 7:08 pm

There is a team in my league that lost Prior and some other tough breaks. They are last and have little chance to finish in the money. They also have a few stud at high prices.

When should I approach them for a dumping trade? I don't want to come off as arrogant suggesting that he's done for the season. Is it one of those things like "Don't call me, I'll call you"?

Guess the best move is to find out what his mindset is in terms of his team's chances and then proceed. Best way I can come up with is to let him know you're interested in a specific player he owns, and ask him what it would take to get that guy. His reply should give you a good barometer of where his thinking is at this point.
