I'm bored again.

Joba is not on the block, but other stars are.

I want to make a blockbuster and pull in some mL talent, as well as some potential keepers who may not have performed in the Majors to their abilities.

I have a number of All-Stars on my team that I'm willing to move.

Lets have hot and steamy trade relations.

I'm interested in Felix Hernandez. What would you want for him?

Snatch Catch
04-03-08, 03:21 PM
Interesting. King Felix IS on the block.

My problem with your roster is that I LOVE Hermida, but he's at $14, so he's no bargain.

Let me see if I can piece something together.

ChrisRo
04-03-08, 03:29 PM
I just noticed Felix is on his last year. I still want him, but I wouldn't trade Hermida for him. Try and find someone who is in his last year. Or some potential keeper that, for 2008, is inferior to Felix.

I think I'd like to have a catcher come back in a deal; willing to Jettison any pitcher on my team; and most hitters.

Any deal will need to include a pitcher going away from my team as I will be loaded once the guys start coming off the DL. Hell the guys on the DL are available.

Only untouchables - Phillips, Butler

I'm willing to trade for Ordonez. Check out my squad and see if something interests you, but also consider Ordonez is in his final year, so I'm not trading my best players in the first contract year for him. I think I would give up one of the catchers, or minor leaguers, or players in their final year.

Really; at $6 chilling on the DL; I can't complain...

BTW; with Scott Kazmir allegedly coming back this Sunday; I find myself, once again in the precarious position of being overstocked on pitchers. Now; I just picked up a ww guy; and could easily just punt him back; but I could use a replacement for Ordonez who went out to get Volquez.

So; up for discussion are Kerry Wood, CJ Wilson; everyone needs saves; don't kid youself; at $10 for a closer with keeper eligibility you want them; I know you do; you know you do, so just stop complaining. Additionally; the non-keepers are up; so Lincecum; Gallardo, Buerhle. I may also drop Buerhle, who's been pissing me off with the 5+ ERA; so you may have that to look forward to. Both Tim and Yovani may help you win this year.

ChrisRo

Well, I was trying to get a different player from him than from you (obviosuly :D) ... but yes, the offer was basically the same for everyone (I made like 5 offers in the last hour), I'm trying to get rid of a couple of players and make room for someone else.

This is what happens when you postpone picking up a player when he's in AAA and you're absolutely sure he will explode, only to find out a couple of weeks later that he picthes 4 perfect innings while striking out 7 in his ML debut :)

Is anybody interested in Max Scherzer?

He has just been taken out of the D-Backs' rotation, and will probably pitch in relief for the next few weeks. He's an obvious future star, but I'm planning to win this year, so that's not really helpful for me. :)

Anybody interested in a fast trade?

Here's the deal: I had to activate Headley from the reserve list, but my team is so damn good that I can't seem to be willing to drop anyone without something in return :)

My roster is currently invalid, so I have to do this by lineup lock tonight.

I'd like to trade two of the following players:

Byrnes - final year, $10
Hermida - 1st year, $14
Nady - 1st year, $10
Kotchman - 1st year, $10
Y. Escobar - 1st year, $10
Headley - 3 years left, $10
Church - 1st year, $10

... for one player, of slightly better value than the one he replaces.

I'm willing to do this only by 6 PM tonight, so if one of the players on my list is of any interest to you, you better move fast :D

Thx ;)

ChrisRo
06-25-08, 02:15 AM
I know it was silly :) But I was extremely busy yesterday, had absolutely no time to think about specific trades. Plus, I was going to release only one player. With this trade offer I was giving up 2 players. I thought that Hermida, Nady or Byrnes might stir some interest, cause it was obvious I wasn't gonna drop them, so this offer was the only chance for some of you to get them.

Anyway. This is what happens when you have such a great roster :D
