What SP for my Freese?

Postby garretterik » Mon Jul 30, 2012 1:43 am

OK, this guy is desparate for 3B and has plenty of SP, I need SP and have plenty of 3B.
I offered him Middlebrooks for Kuroda and he said make another offer.
What should I ask for Freese? I doubt I get Strasburgh. Should I ask for Gallardo, Chen, or Kuroda?

What about Nova? Do you think he would take Middlebrooks for Nova? That, or I would try Freese for Gallardo, that's likely to be accepted with Gallardo's recent blowup.

Thanks for the help with mine....... I'm guessing he isn't that desperate if he shot down that deal quick. I really don't see any pitchers on his team besides Strasburg that I would give up Freese for.........

I can't imagine Freese would deliver you Strasburgh, innings cap and all, but worth a shot (BECAUSE the innings cap may scare the other manager). I think going for Ivan Nova is reasonable, although to be honest, beyond Strasburg, none of those pitchers really wow me.

Can you help me? viewtopic.php?t=451088

I'd agree with the above. I'd probably try Middlebrooks for Nova, or if you wanted to try and go big, try and sell Freese for Strasburg or Gallardo. I doubt it brings you Stras (though with the inning limit and the fact it's a non-keeper it might be possible), but Gallardo might work.

Thanks for the help with mine.

I'd try Freese for Kuroda, if you can score Gallardo, by all means go for it. HOWEVER the Brewers bullpen is killing there pitchers value at the moment.
