I'm in a 12 team 5x5 H2H league. I offered a leaguemate Jason Bartlett and Johnny Damon for his Matt Holliday and Aaron Hill. I was not expecting this to get accepted, but he comes back with this ridiculous counter offer - He gives me Adrian Beltre and Michael Bourn for my injured Aramis Ramirez.
Now, I could deal Aramis (I have Chris Davis and Johnny Peralta (with 1 more start) that can fill in at third), but I would like to get some players that I can put in my lineup. What do you think is a good counter-offer?
Here's his roster:
1B: Carlos Pena
2B: A Hill
3B: Adrian Beltre
SS: Michael Young
OF: J Bay, M Holliday, A Rios
UTIL: Chase Utley, Josh Hamilton
BN: Lowell, Kosuke, J Loney, Felipe Lopez, Soto, M Bradley
SP: Uehara, Zambrano
RP: A Bailey, H Street, Aardsma, S Downs, Qualls
And mine is in the signature.
I would like to get Aaron Hill so that I can shop around with Pedroia, maybe deal him to the guy who just lost Weeks.
You guys have any thoughts?
What about Downs and Ludwick (or Bourn) for Aramis?
