With Schafer never getting play anyway...I went reverso on this...dropped Schafer for Viciedo and if I cannot swing a 2 for 1, or a 3 for 2 trade...I will drop League when Gardner is back.
Hoping to swing a Napoli and Cespedes for Trout deal...or something similar before then.
Trading Napoli and Cespededs for Trout is definitely overpaying imo. Napoli should be able to get you more then that, he provides a lot of power at a thin position.
How high should I reach?
I would assume guys like Granderson and McCutchen and Pence are out of reach? Or do I assume too much?
What about Justin Upton or Shane Vicotrino?
Who would you target?
You definitely should be able to get Victorino. You prob wouldn't be able to get Upton or McCutchen though. Can't hurt to send an offer though just in case the owner of Upton is freaking out about his slump. I would def try that just in case you get lucky.
Granderson and Pence might also be possibilities, but it will likely be turned down as well. I would send an offer for Grandy, Pence, and Upton and just pray they accept. Keep the Victorino offer as a backup in case nothing else works out.
