A couple times now someone has wanted to trade me for one of my SAGNOF® brand, garbage closers. i.e. Frieri or the like. These are the types of guys I'm always willing to sell. They'll blow a safe or two and will be out and I can grab the replacement guy.

My issue is that they usually offer some scrub who they picked up off the wire last week or some guy who I have a much better option for already. Obviously I want they to deal me value, but so often people feel like their mid level and higher guys are untouchable.

How can I reel somebody in when they're looking for saves?

Does the closer just become the wedge to trade up to a better, but mostly comparable player at the same position? Say Frieri plus Ichiro for Cespedes? Or should I hold out for more value than an incremental upgrade?

What you said... Usually a closer is just a sweetener... Unless it's Aroldis or Kimbrel...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
