This guy has been floating me constant offers for Miguel Cabrera. 3 for 1 offers that I refuse to take. His most recent is Ben Sheets, Sheffield, and Loney for Cabrera. Well I don't want Sheffield, and Loney's good but not the perceived superstar that Miggy is. And I like Sheets but pitching is not a huge need for me and Sheets is an injury risk. This same guy also has Haren on his pitching staff.
I decided to make this guy tow the line. I countered with the following...
I give Cabrera/Bedard
I get Reyes/Haren
I think it's in my favor as Reyes is like gold since great SS are hard to find. Getting rid of Bedard wouldn't hurt my feelings at all. And I like Miggy, but power 1st basemen are easier to find than stud SS.
Your counter isn't as lowball as his trade offers. I do like Reyes the best.
