    Preseason trade talk

    since our trade forum is so quiet i figured this might help. I hope

    Buntsville will entertain offers for the following

    Career HR & RBI leader Will Sharer, his power is in decline but his DI sure isnt, can hit at the top of an order and still slam 40 HRs. He's got a big salary which may deter a deal but a 1st rounder of any position will take him.

    28YO Mark Kelly is a top of the order phenom .298BA .402OBP for his career

    31YO groundball pitcher Steve Taylor

    I'll consider other if anyone wants to look over roster
    PGML Cuban's Sharks

    Taylor is a peculiar build and growth path. what do you want for him? I can spend a 1st, he's a little to old for that, but my 2nd is 39 and maybe a prospect like Richard Patton.

    Join the Remake Leagues! No Experience Necessary.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    Maine would trade Felix Anthony or Alexander Brecht for a 2nd rounder or equivalent prospect.

    We are over the cap so can only trade with teams under the cap.

    I'd be up for pairing a Low Minor prospect like pitchers Thomas Lowe or Max Bryant or SS Jonathan Blackburn and draft picks and either P Justin Fox or Henry Mercado for an improvement at pitching, or 2B.
    I've got $2,600,000 of cap room.
