Do I make this trade for Verlander?

Postby Surfs up » Thu Mar 07, 2013 2:47 pm

Do I make this trade? I get Verlander 35.00, Alex Cobb 8.00 and a pick # 23
I give up Erick Aybar 15.00, Danny Hultzen( a minor leaguer) and a pick #15
I would only be able to keep Verlander this year. I already have David Price at 20.00

This is a 12 team 5x5 standard scoring AL only. We can keep up to 8 players for two years or extend them after the second year at 5.00 per year. I'm extending Hosmer and Jennings from 5.00 to 10.00 so I can keep them through 2014.
My other keepers right now are
Trout 5.00 I will extend him next year at 5.00 per year.
Hosmer 10.00
Jennings 10.00
Wieters 16.00
Tiillman 1.00
Janssen 1.00

I would have two of the top pitchers but my salary would jump up from 83.00 to 105.00 leaving me with 155.00 to get 15 more players .
I can also make a trade with the same manager and get Alex Cobb 8.00 and his 23 pick for just my 15 pick.
The picks are used for remaining major league players that went undrafted. They go on a reserve squad and become 5.00 automatically. And the picks can be used for minor leaguers. They also become 5.00 when they come up to the majors .

Get him, that's not too expensive for him at all. Also, not giving up a whole lot either.

Now he's asking for either Hosmer or Jennings instead of Aybar. Both Hosmer and jennings are only 5.00 this year. I'm chosing to add a year to each making them 10.00 each so I can keep them next year as well. Plus I can't keep Verlander after this year.
I think he's asking too much. I can get Weaver or Felix for 35 or so and not have to give up anything. You may think I'm crazy but I told him no thanks already. if I didn't already have Price I might do the deal. i realize this would give me two stud pitchers but I think I would rather have either hitter and the extra money. Plus the minor league and Hultzen.
