this is a private elite league with all experienced owners. not only are all closers owned, all next in line relievers are owned. some next to next in line relievers are owned as well. so the waiver wire for relievers who could get saves is very thin.
I could use Butler at 1B with someone else at IN.
I have tried and tried multiple offers with this owner. he prefers established players and has little to no interest in the likes of Presley/Brantley.
I have also tried to trade starting pitching, but those who do have relievers available do not want starting pitching.
he has Frank Francisco and Jim Johnson, blah. I don't think they keep their jobs.
he also has JJ Putz.
should I do this, or counter and ask for Putz?
