I have two trades on the table involving keepers (we can keep up to six) and the year next to the player is when their contracts expire at the end of the season. Two deals I proposed involve catcher Russell Martin and I wonder which one do you think is better:
Catcher Martin, $15, (2009), second baseman Kelly Johnson, $6 (2009) and third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff, $10, (2009) for second baseman Brandon Phillips, $15 (2009), Troy Tulowitzki, $10, (2009) and Yadier Molina, $5 (2009).
Martin, Mark Reynolds, $10, (2009) and Brad Lidge, $19, (2009) for catcher Benji Molina, $9, (2009), outfielder Justin Upton, $10, (2009) and pitcher Chad Billingsley, $6, (2009).
Thanks for the input.
