One of these days I'm going to actually pull off one of these trades I keep thinking about. Here's the latest:
The guy in last place in my league has Lance Berkman and lives in San Francisco. He's close to last in everything except HR, RBI, W, and SV. I proposed (merely as an opening salvo): my Adam LaRoche and Matt Cain for his Lance Berkman.
He countered with Berkman and Todd Coffey (!) for Cain and Votto. I've got no interest in Coffey, and I'd be willing to part with Votto if the return was good enough, but I feel like Votto plus Cain is too much for Berkman alone. Any other permutations you can see that might work out better? As before, my biggest needs so far are Runs and SBs, though I could use some help with all of my offensive categories.
BN: Inge, Posada, Jose Lopez, Hardy
SP: Millwood, Lohse, F-Her, Sanchez, Buehrle, Dice-K
RP: Nathan, Cordero, Wilson, Coffey
DL: Webb, Duch
Berkman for Votto and Hoff?
