Desperation Trade for Cain

Postby ohbilly2134 » Fri Aug 16, 2013 6:44 am

Okay, so I got an email this morning from another owner in my league who said the following:

"You have already clinched a playoff spot and are out of the points race. I need to win this week, and Cain plays the Marlins tomorrow. What do you want for him?"

Below are his players of interest. What do I ask for? Do I offer Cain + closer for a better package of the same? You tell me.

VMart, Butler, Prince Fielder, Puig
Greinke, Cliff Lee, Scherzer, Balfour, Brothers, DL- Matt Moore

Trying to get the best deal possible since he's desperate. Is Cliff Lee alone enough for Cain?

Thanks!

I'd take Lee, why don't you ask them what they will give?

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.

What would be a realistic offer?

Scherzer for my Cain?
Lee for my Cain?
Lee + someone for Cain?

What to do, boys? Where should I start?

He's asking for Cain + closer for Lee.

Do it? Maybe Cain + Farquhar or Perez?

Thanks, Gents.

That slippery SOB ended up making another deal before I could get back to him.

He sent Fielder, Greinke and Balfour to another owner for Hosmer, Bumgarner and Garza.

Fack!!! I wanted Lee.
