I have a surplus of starting pitching and I'm looking flip a guy or two for an upgrade on offense. I'm wondering if offering any of these deals is going to get it done:
I give Pence, Hudson, Sale for Braun I give Sale, Gordon, Zimmermann for Tulowitzki (Andrus? Reyes?) I give Pence, Sale, Worley for Granderson I give Pence, Sale, Zimmermann for Kemp I give Gordon, Sale for JJ Hardy
Do I have a shot with any of these? Are there other packages I can put together to upgrade my offense?
Leave a link and I'll help as always!
10 Team H2H League: C Carlos Ruiz 1B Paul Konerko 2B Jason Kipnis 3B Miguel Cabrera SS Alcides Escobar OF Alex Gordon OF Nelson Cruz OF Hunter Pence Util Edwin Encarnacion Util Dayan Viciedo BN Dexter Fowler BN Dee Gordon SP Justin Verlander SP Matt Cain SP Jordan Zimmermann RP Brandon League RP Casey Janssen P Jaime Garcia P Gio Gonzalez P Felipe Paulino P Chris Sale BN AJ Burnett BN Daniel Hudson BN Vance Worley
I would not offer that 5th and final trade (the one for JJ Hardy)
All the others I'd be more than happy to do. You'd be selling high on Sale, and Pence has ended up being stuck in a pretty terrible lineup (although he was in the same situation in Houston).
In that second scenario, I'd actually pursue Reyes instead of Tulo, because I think Reyes will be higher on the ESPN player rater at year's end (but that's just me).
3 for 1's are usually a little too drastic, but I think getting Braun, Reyes, Granderson, or Kemp would be a nice move for you. Out of those 4, I think Granderson is the only one that might not be considered "elite". Some would argue he is, while some would say he is simply "top tier" or "very good". I'd be wary of Kemp though with that lingering injury. Could affect him long term, or perhaps keep him out longer than usual since the Dodgers might not want to rush him back a 2nd time.

I give Pence, Hudson, Sale for Braun - Worth an offer I guess but probably not enough to get it done. I give Sale, Gordon, Zimmermann for Tulowitzki (Andrus? Reyes?) - Like the offer for Tulo. Andrus or Reyes should be tried for at a cheaper price. I give Pence, Sale, Worley for Granderson - I give Pence, Sale, Zimmermann for Kemp - I don't like it. With Kemp out at least a month I think you lose on this deal. So unless this is a keeper league I give Gordon, Sale for JJ Hardy

I would try for the one with Braun before any of the others if i was you he is the most reliable guy there that also consists of how he bats and staying healthy
