Wow, HUGE TRADE!!!
Is this a valid offer or a trade you plan to propose? Obviously you would win this deal HUGE, even if Miller wasn't ever healthy again. Unless I'm missing something, ;-7 it's hard to believe the 7th place guy would give up that much. Perhaps he feels he JUST HAS TO HAVE Soriano for keeper purposes. O:-) One thing I'd worry about, if you do accept this, it'll be frowned upon bigtime by the other league members. No one likes to see lopsided trades go down.

That is a huge trade! 8-o

I think you'll profit, but I don't think it's all that lopsided. Ichiro and Soriano are among the best in the game; I wouldn't hold this against either owner. The inclusion of Sasaki should give you the edge, though.

This is a hesitant trade.... He's wanted Ichiro all year and I figure wowing him with the addition of Soriano would get me Sasaki. I had Urbina but made a terrible trade and gave him up for Mondesi. (don't ask me what I was thinking I guess the change to NY) . Other than that I still wondered whether I was getting stiffed or not. Ichiro and Soriano could both hit .340 in the second half with atleast 50 sb's between them. He needs help in SB'S, AVE, AND RUNS. I NEED HELP IN RBI'S HR'S WHIP AND ERA, AND NOW I NEED A CLOSER SO I THINK THIS IS GOOD FOR BOTH OF US. Maybe getting Miller is asking too much....

If you don't want to give up so many steals at once, why not trade just one of either Ichiro or Soriano for power and saves? You can always add Zito/Oswalt or other considerations to the deal if you wish to make things even, and you wouldn't take such a huge hit in one category.
