Got Trade. Move Bruce, Ells, or Nada? * WHIR *

Postby Seanyfever » Thu Aug 16, 2012 11:18 pm

I have been working a deal with another manager. He is out of hte playoff picture, I am much in it bouncing in and out of first place in one of the divisions. I expect I will finish second. I have a great lineup but injuries and always hitting the hot team in a 14 team H2H league have been issues.

Contractual issues says he must trade Bumgarner and Beltran before the beginning of next year's keeper indication. I can have Tim Hudson and perhaps AJ Burnett for a decent draft pick up grade. However, he is shopping hte first two for certain. Most are offering him draft picks.... I think I can sweeten it by putting one of Ellsbury or Bruce in the deal with a draft pick. I do not have to get rid of either this year, but I think Bumgarner will work as keeper as well. I do not believe he has interest in closer as I have several good ones.


Who would you trade???? Ellsbury or Bruce as the "bait".

I would push for Bumgarner, Beltran, Husdon and/or Aj Burnett.

I actually move Bruce as the bait, and try to get as much of the players as you can.

Minimum: Bumgarner and Burnett and a bat; Beltran seems like a good one. If you can make the deal with players whose last names do not begin with B, see if you can add Hudson as well.

This only works if he can't keep the guys he is sending you and would want to keep Bruce. I would also give up Ellsbury instead if you got such a haul.

Bruce is the obvious person I'd include in the deal. If you pull that off, that's one heck of a deal for you!!
