Urbina is tempting, but Berkman is a huge price to pay. In ten-team mixed, you're probably better off going after a lesser closer than sacrificing a true star like Berkman.

True, and Jones is quite solid. But who would you have to drop if you made this deal?

I would drop Stewart. I don't have confidence in him after his 108 ERA yesterday

ok, i made the trade for jones and urbina. I think my saves are set with

wickman
julio
urbina

another team in my league wants a guy with RBI's and HR's. What do you think about a trade:

Garret Anderson and either Jon Lieber, Padilla or Ohka

for

Matt Morris and Bobby Abreu

That trade sounds like it would help you, no matter which pitcher you wound up giving. :-)

the guy declined my trade and offered:

Bret Boone, Edgar Martinez, Matt Morris

for

A-Rod, Wickman

I declined because I can't use Edgar Martinez

Can you think of a fair trade?

He's looking for HR's and RBI

Here is his lineup:

Pierzynski, A.J. C MIN
Santiago, Benito C SF
Helton, Todd 1B COL
Boone, Bret 2B SEA
Zeile, Todd 3B COL
Garciaparra, Nomar SS BOS
Cruz, Jose OF TOR
Abreu, Bobby OF PHI
Owens, Eric OF FLA
Burrell, Pat OF PHI
Winn, Randy OF TB
McGriff, Fred U CHC
Martinez, Edgar U SEA

Schilling, Curt P ARI
Koch, Billy P OAK
Wagner, Billy P HOU
Ashby, Andy P LA
Burkett, John P BOS
Vazquez, Javier P MON
Nunez, Vladimir P FLA
Acevedo, Juan P DET
Morris, Matt P

What would be a fair trade for the both of us?

Hmm... you could start with Anderson for Abreu, for instance (point out that Anderson's overall value is higher so far), and see what else you can add on to that deal?
