Al only trade question

Postby Surfs up » Sun Jan 21, 2018 10:18 am

12 team AL only 5x5 standard roto scoring . 260.00 Auction league
I'm thinking of trying to beat the draft by making a trade for one of the better pitchers that probably won't be kept. Most teams don't keep higher priced players so with only a handful of stud pitcher in a single league I thought I would see if I could get one now and not have to bid on one.
Chris Sale 47.00
Cory Kluber 39.00
Carlos Carassco 27.00
Money wise I realize CC is the best value . But his owner is hard to deal with . I'm 99% sure he won't keep him but he'll want somebody like Bregman or Moncada in exchange. Both are 5.00 and I plan on keeping. I could offer him Mitch Haniger 11.00 who I am thinking of keeping .
This league over values most players. Moncada and Bregman are 5.00 because they were picked up as minor leaguers and thats the base price for a minor leaguer. Both have two years left to be kept.
I ahve sent a not the the owner of both Sale and Kluber but no reply yet.

the ole I'm not going to keep him but I want someone real valuable trick, eh? Certainly doesn't hurt to look around but I'd rather pay a little more later than give up 1 of my own guys I like to buy a non-keeper from someone else. Not a bad idea to try to secure an ace before opening up the rest of the league to bidding, I just wouldn't lose someone I really liked to get it done
