Votto for Hosmer & Price or other offer (WHIR)

Postby chillpony » Fri May 11, 2012 11:53 pm

Hey everyone,
I offered an owner Wright for Price and haven't heard back, however he countered with Votto for Price. I rejected that, but am now considering seeing if he'll toss in Hosmer. Is that enough to make it a solid deal, or would it still favor him? Mybe he'd toss in Dee Gordon too? I am fine with my team rolling into next year, but I want/need better SP.

My other outstanding trade offer is Votto for Reyes, Beachy and Dunn. Really not a bad trade, just seems like a risk with Reyes health and current performance.

My team is below, 5 player keeper league. This years keepers are in blue. Thanks in advance for any input!
Hey everyone,
I am in a competitive H2H keeper league, and my team was extremely disappointing last year, and this year seems more of the same. I am 1-4, We get 5 keepers plus 2 minor leaguers.

If you could get Hosmer and Price, I'd take it in a heartbeat. You'd get two guys who can put up stud numbers for Votto, a legit keeper. That said, I doubt he'd give up that much for Votto. I'd throw in a bottom tier pitcher.

Or, if he's willing to part with Gordon or Reyes, maybe swap SS's in addition to Votto/Price. Move Young to 1B, and Hill to Util. Or even Price/Dunn for Votto, but seems steep since Dunn's pounding again.

My $0.02

Any advice on building my trade? ---> viewtopic.php?t=446727

I like Hosmer & Price if I were you, but he will prob decline it. Never hurts to try though.

Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

Hosmer and Price for Votto is great. If you must, maybe throw in Arrieta or Aaron Hill to sweater the deal. But only if he doesn't budge.
