Trading SP for Offense. Potential Targets...

Postby phorts » Wed Apr 06, 2011 8:53 pm

I loaded up on SP and have been stockpiling off the WW since opening day. Now it's time to cash them in for some offense while the gettin's good.

Team in Sig.

I'm looking to upgrade to an Elite 3B or OF.

1. Which SP(s) would you use as bait
2. Which OF would you use as bait.

I've been eying two players - ARod and Crawford

Is Hanson/Rasmus enough/too much to grab either of those guys?

Thanks for looking!

1. No it is not enough
2. You are trying to get a big name player who likely drafted in the first or second round
3. I assume all players you are trading with don't study baseball as much as we do at Razzball so they don't know or care who Hommy Tanson is. ie. I traded Sabathia and Furcal for HanRam and two people in my league said I gave all my pitching away (all I have left are Kershaw, Gallardo, Haran, et al. [see below])
4. If people are really dumb they would take quantity over quality, so it never hurts to offer a low ball trade and hope they take it/ accidentally click accept
5. I don't know if you have enough to go after one of those guys right now, but maybe go after a Beltre or Youk or JUp or Dread Pirate with your Hanson or Liriano and Alvarez or Rasmus
6. How could there possibly be a 6?
