Looking to add a LF in the 2 fp/g range.
I offered an equitable deal that didn't make sense to you positionally (which is fair). Your only counter was asking for a player you've literally asked on 20 times who didn't make sense for me to move. In all honestly, you're kinda a hard team to deal with because I'm not really sure what your plan is. Are you going to consolidate assets and try to compete in the near future? Are you going to draft and develop and play the long game? Somewhere in the middle? You haven't really said what you want to do. I just assume you are playing the long game based on your roster composition, so any offers are generally going to be future focused, you know? I'm not saying BM's offer was good. It wasn't. But you also need to tell people what your plans are so at least they have a starting point. Just my .02.Trial Ballon/Balloon Results!
Feel free to ignore this one, guys! LOL. This is pretty long-winded and self-indulgent…I just want to blow off a little steam and get it off my chest.
So, in light of the Hendriks and Springer deals, in our chat you guys suggested that we a) post when guys become available so more, better offers come in, and b) chat up possible deals for evaluation.
I floated an announcement in chat to test those theories, mentioning that Villar, Mondesi, Harper, Abrams, Witt, Dominguez, Gorman, Robert, Cease, Kopech, and future picks were on the block. I edited my trade block to show that I’m looking for 1B, 2B, LF, SP, maybe CF.
Everybody has been paying close attention since then. 4 trades have been made, by 8 teams. Lots of engagement and activity in the league, as pretty much every team has been online making draft picks and paying close attention to rosters.
So, to check in on those test balloon results:
0 offers for Villar, Abrams, Witt, Gorman, Robert, or future picks.
1 offer on Dominguez
1 offer on Kopech
