I trade:

Brian Roberts
JJ Hardy
Bobby Abreu
Francisco Cordero

I receive:

Chase Utley
Brad Hawpe

This is a 10 team 3 player keeper league. I'm currently in 2nd place.

My 3 keepers would then be ARod, Reyes, Utley. I'm probably giving a little much for this year but my future will be as bright as Jay Bruce's. ;)

Thoughts?

Not a bad deal, but if you're in 2nd, will it hurt your chance at winning the title. If so, I wouldn't do it.

That's a pretty good offer. No one in my league would accept it because it would involve trading Utley (:rolleyes:), but I'd say that's pretty fair, based on what I know.

Not a bad deal, but if you're in 2nd, will it hurt your chance at winning the title. If so, I wouldn't do it.

Here are my reasons for doing this deal:

1. Hardy never plays on my team, he is behind Reyes.

2. Cordero is expendable because he is at peak value and I have a 23 save lead over the team that is 2nd in saves and I'll still have FRod, Accardo, and soon Al Reyes.

3. Roberts hurts my steals, but I have a 20 steal lead of 2nd place and Reyes will get another 30-40 in the 2nd half.

4. I have finally given up on Abreu. I drafted him high in quite a few leagues and he has let me down big time. Even giving him up my OF will be Bonds, V. Wells, Markakis, and Hawpe.

5. I get Utley, Reyes, and ARod for as long as I want them for the future.

This will be my post trade team:

C - Estrada
1B - Kent
2B - Utley
SS - Reyes
3B - ARod
OF - Bonds
OF - V. Wells
OF - Markakis
UTIL - Thome
BN - Hawpe
BN - A. Gonzalez

SP - Zambrano
SP - Sheets
SP - Shields
SP - R. Hill
SP - Gorzelanny
RP - F. Rodriguez
RP - Accardo
RP - A. Reyes
RP - Marmol
RP - Rauch

Holds are a stat. Plus I get to pick 2 more players up off waivers since I'm trading 4 for 2.

Looks pretty good long term. In Utley and Reyes you lock up arguably the 2 best players at the 2 premium positions for fantasy talent.

Then it's a good deal. Go for it.

I do that deal yesterday. We also have a three-keeper league, so I understand why you're doing this completely. Hardy and Cordero are both going to regress and Roberts is mediocre at best. The only real value I see you giving up is Abreu, and he's on the downside of his career.

Brian Roberts
JJ Hardy
Bobby Abreu
Francisco Cordero

I receive:

Chase Utley
Brad Hawpe

If you look at the trade like this:

Roberts, Hardy, Abreu, and Cordero

for

Utley and Hawpe

. . . then you might be giving up more than you're receiving. However, when you factor in the two guys you'll pick up on waivers (I don't know who they are, but I trust your judgment), you're getting a great deal. With it being a keeper league, I think you have to do it if possible.

Just to inform everyone, this trade has been confirmed. I am quite pleased with how I did.

Now to figure out who I'm going to pick up. I'll let you know when I decide who that will be.

I picked up Brad Lidge and Chad Billingsley after this trade went through.

Utley, Hawpe, Billingsley, and Lidge

for

Abreu, Cordero, Hardy, Roberts

I am quite happy.

Even better. Nice work.

I also just turned Brad Hawpe into Paul Konerko.

My offense should now be set for the remainder of the season unless something happens injury wise or an offer I can't refuse.

I'm going to try to turn a closer + Kent or Adrian Gonzalez (if he heats back up at all) into a starter.

A F-ING rookie blowhard pitcher costs me 4-6 weeks by hitting Utley in the hand.

Damn.

Damn.

Grab Tadahito Iguchi while he's still a free agent. :laugh:

Damn.

I feel the same way. Second base is the only position I don't have any quality depth. I'm taking a chance by banking on Rickie Weeks to rebound from his atrocious start to the year. The only other players I could really consider were Jose Vidro, Tad Iguchi, and Felipe Lopez.
