Was I wrong?
I have been on the warpath for a few days trying to do some trading. I'm in 3 leagues and all 3 have a maximum of 3 to 4 trades per year! (I know that sucks) Anyway for some strange reason I get no responses from any of the owners.
So since they don't respond I thought I could get feed back from some of you.
Basically it's a 3 for 1:
I offered: Blalock, Kent and Mulder. This owner is last in the league in HR, RBI and Wins. He is however 1st in steals. His 2nd basemen is Polonco.
I asked for: D. Wright, Livan Hernandez and middle relief pitcher in J.Davis.
Was I that stupid to offer such a deal???
Re: Was I wrong?
It depends on your depth if this is a good trade or not. Blalock is going to have a pretty good year hitting 5th in the Rangers lineup. He is going to have quite a few RBIs, hit .290, and have 25 HRs. Wright SHOULD hit .300, 35, 110 but he has slowed down a little bit since a torrid start.
Kent is in a very bad slump, but I would expect him to turn it around sometime. I know he's older but he is a proven ML hitter. I am actually going to target him in one of my leagues and try to get him for Otsuka. My 2B in that league is Vidro.
Mulder for Livan is a win for the other owner no matter what way you try to spin it. Mulder is on a far better team and Livan is not what he was last year.
Davis only has value if you have K/9 or holds in your league settings.
To me, it is a lot to give up to get David Wright. If you have depth elsewhere on your team to make up for the loss of Kent (if/when he recovers) and Mulder, you are getting 1st round talent back in Wright.
