If selling, what are some names (pitchers or hitters) that youd be looking to get back in a 1 for 1?
If buying, what kind of offers are u throwing out there?
I've got Upton in a keeper and I won't deal him for anything less than a #1 ace SP. I'm currently stacked on hitters so I'm looking to pick up an ace to hold down my staff down the stretch, but you won't pry him off my hands for anything other than a top of the line starter: Kershaw, Verlander, Cain, etc...
This is almost exactly how i felt as well.
I have Upton in a "keep 8 players" keeper league where he can be kept as a 4th rounder next year...
Having a monster offense, Im getting desperate for a stud SP after numerous injuries and figured it would be easy to swap him for a legit ace.
well one guy has all of hamels, kershaw, and greinke and he wont trade any of them straight up for Upton.
another guy has Verlander and Weaver and he also told me he wont do a 1 for 1 for either of them.
a third team, in last place, has both CC (cant be kept) and Cain (4th round), and even he declined on both counts.
That leaves only a couple guys I can realistically target and I dont know if its just my league that values Upton so low or if his trade value has actually fallen that dramatically across the board.
