Minor League Trade Offer?

Postby JRM4833 » Mon Mar 13, 2006 1:13 pm

I'm in an 18 team league and we had a 5 round minor league draft last year and I stocked up pretty big through trades. This year it's at 3 rounds and I was offered the 2.6, 2.11, 3.4 and 3.6 picks for my Homer Bailey and Nick Markakis. What are the chances of getting enough value with these picks to make it worth it? My current minor league roster:

1. Ian Stewart
2. Prince Fielder
3. Stephen Drew
4. Jeff Niemann
5. Adam Miller
6. Homer Bailey
7. Jeff Mathis
8. Cole Hamels
9. Nick Markakis

I also just promoted Felix to a 5 year major league contract and as you can see, have plenty of depth at SP so I can afford to trade Bailey. Markakis is looking better and better though from what I'm hearing.

For anyone who wants to know more, here are the guys taken last year (I don't really expect anyone to take the time to analyze this too much):
