Well, Grey, we return to the horrible events that led to Mauer being on my team. As I mentioned before, just him being on the roster makes me puke in my mouth. The manager that ended up with Sandoval is making overtures. Pennies on the dollar, Mauer for Sandoval? Going with my gut I say yes just because I don't want to have to package Mauer with another player and there arent too many other catchers I could get for him straight up. The Russ Martin owner also ended up with VMart due to autodraft; because of their name status I'm sure he won't trade either straight up for Mauer. Is it worth it to package Mauer with a player for either? Its possible to throw a closer in with Mauer for one of them since SAGNOF, but that seems like trading a wheelbarrow full of donkey poo for a truckload of catshit. Obviously, the catcher position is a revolving door and with the rest of my team I could manage with scraps, but if I'm giving up on Mauer it seems like I should get something out of it.
The rest of you are allowed to comment too. Stop lurking on my threads. I know its you RCL OG division-ers.
Why would a guy with V-Mart and Martin want Mauer? Is V-Mart his 1st baseman? Why not just work the revolving door until Mauer is healthy? If you can manage on scraps at C, then you can manage with Mauer when he's healthy. In other words, I don't like Mauer, but I don't like the trades you're proposing either.
