    Fantasy Trades

    Thought I'd make this to talk openly about some fantasy trades since leagues are running. Anyway I have a trade offer on the table and was wondering if I went overboard making this offer?

    my offer is:
    Chase Utley
    Jhonny Peralta
    Alfonso Soriano

    for

    Raúl Ibañez
    Alcides Escobar
    Bobby Jenks

    Im crazy right? I needed a closer, the guy I was offering to needed a SS and 2B

    I think you're crazy.. Utley is a first round draft choice. And I've always seen Soriano as a top 50 fantasy player just because he can provide every category. Ibanez is what, 38 now? How long can he keep going? Closers change so frequently throughout the season for a lot of teams that I've learned my lesson to not give up too much in trying to trade for one. But hey, that's just my opinion

    I'm not sure I would trade Utley by himself for those three.

    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    On a side note- anyone think Soriano will rebound this year? He was awful last year but hurt....

    I wouldn't bank on that many steals.
