Advice on potential blockbuster

Postby realdeal18 » Thu May 12, 2011 4:44 pm

I'm in a H2H 14 team league with the usual 5x5 stats. Looking for advice on a potential blockbuster.

I would get Paul Konerko, Carlos Beltran, and my choice of ONE of the following pitchers: Lincecum, Cliff Lee, Josh Johnson, Lester, and Hamels.

I would give up Matt Kemp, Wandy Rodriguez, and Francisco Liriano.

First question is should I even do the deal? Second is which pitcher should I choose if I do it?

My team is below. Thanks

Sounds pretty sweet. I'd want Lincecum or Johnson in that order.

Ok, well this deal is changing as we speak. He wants more now since Beltran just went off. He wants me to throw in Weeks and he'd give me Kelly Johnson. So the deal would look like the following now:

I get Kelly Johnson, Paul Konerko, Carlos Beltran, and ONE of the following - Lincecum, Josh Johnson, Cliff Lee, Lester, Hamels

I give Weeks, Matt Kemp, Wandy Rodriguez, and Liriano

I think you're giving up too much in the 2nd deal, but in the first deal I'd take Lincecum. I agree with Yankees.. wait until Beltran has a couple of bad games and then offer offer Rasmus instead of Kemp. I hate owners that take back trade offers after one or two good games... your opinion of a player shouldn't change much after 1 game.
