Blockbuster Trade!!! WHIR

Postby Mr. Bohjangles » Fri Jul 07, 2017 6:22 pm

I'm currently in 5th place and fading fast. Trying to boost my offense in hopes that I'm able to move back into the playoff picture. I offered Yu Darvish, Dallas Keuchel, and Eric Hosmer for Anthony Rizzo and Manny Machado (also available at SS). He countered with the same players but Corey Dickerson instead of Hosmer. Should I accept?

So you boost offense and then have no pitching? You seriously are going to contend with your top SPs being Cole and Gray?

It's a pretty risky move. Machado is inconsistent as they come right now. I traded for him hoping he would heat up, but only gave up Verlander/Nunez. I think you're buying him too low.

That's a lot to give up. I don't think I'd do it.

We negotiated a little. Ended up doing Keuchel, Dickerson, and Sonny Gray for Machado and Rizzo. I'm happy with that.
