Dumb to accept, or dumb not to accept? That's the question with this one.
I'm currently in first place, but have been scuffling recently. I am power deficient thanks in part to losing Harper and Tulo. Guy in last place has wanted Trout badly ever since beginning of the season. I sent him a deal, and retracted it, and he responded saying he would have accepted it.
I sent this deal.
I send - Trout, Cuddyer, Lucroy, Cozart Moreland and Cashner
I get - Chris Davis, Matt Holliday, Choo, Mauer, Hanram and Cliff Lee
Nearly a team overhaul, and I lose Trout and gain a few options for keepers. We keep 8 in this league. Is trout worth this? Especially if I'm in first right now?
My team looks like so -
3B - Zimmerman
2B/SS - Andrus
1B/3B - Freeman/Moreland
OF - Trout, Harper, Heyward, Werth(less), Fowler, Austin Jackson, Cuddyer, Oscar Taveras (speculative add)
Sp- Harvey, Miller, Cahsner, Samardjzia, Zimmerman, Cobb, Scherzer.
