wow triple post but I need help haha
Firstly, 10 team, 5x5, mixed league. H2H.

I wanted to get Hosmer and Lawrie from this guy, so I initially offered him 2 trades: Lawrie for my Heyward and Bourjos, and then Lawrie and Hosmer for my Konerko, Heyward, and Chris Perez (he has only 1 closer). I then emailed him saying that I want to try to work something out for Lawrie and Hosmer, and he shot me Lawrie and Neftali Feliz for my Justin Upton. Obviously I rejected this, but I just countered with a very interesting deal in my opinion. In this deal, I sent:

I give:
Carlos Gonzalez
Alex Rodriguez
Paul Konerko

and
I get:
Eric Hosmer
Brett Lawrie
Robinson Cano

I was thinking about offering something similar but for just hosmer and lawrie, but I'm not sure what was fair value. Help?

Here's what I have now:

C: Brian McCann
1B: Paul Konerko
2B: Ryan Roberts
SS: Alexei Ramirez
3B: A-Rod
OF: Justin Upton
OF: CarGo
OF: Jason Heyward
UTIL: Corey Hart
UTIL: Chris Young
BN: Peter Bourjos
BN: Danny Espinosa
BN: Neil Walker

SP: Tim Lincecum
SP: CC Sabathia
RP: Jason Motte
RP: John Axford
P: Madison Bumgarner
P: Chris Perez
P: Brandon League
P: Sergio Santos
BN: Brandon McCarthy
BN: Derek Holland

Obviously if this trade were to go through I'd drop the excess 2nd basemen except for maybe one; targets on FA include Lorenzo Cain, Colby Rasmus, Justin Morneau.

Thoughts?

I dunno who in their mind would do that trade, but obviously it's a win for you if he does

You're right and that actually started a whole twitter war (which I did not partake in, haha). I just ended up offering something that I think will wind up getting accepted, let me know what you think: I give up: Konerko, A-Rod, and Santos for Hosmer, Lawrie, and Neftali Feliz.

I convinced myself to drop Allen Craig for Trumbo. I just have a strange feeling he's gonna have ab ig year. Couldn't make myself drop Swisher and his consistency (with injury prone Beltran as my 4th OF)....hopefully I'll be able to pick Craig back up if/when I need to.

I just got that trade accepted, but with me giving up Perez rathert than Santos and also throwing in Ryan Roberts. Once the waiting period ends tomorrow, I will have an open roster spot. Should I pick up Morneau or Cain?

I'm huge on Lawrie, and think he breaks out similar to how David Wright and Ryan Zimmerman broke out during their bust out years. I think he will have 25 Hrs, 95-100 RBIs, and a 290 avg, along with 15-30 steals.

Sounding more and more like he'll be getting surgery on that thumb.

Yeah, it all seems like bad luck to me. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like all of his injuries have been unrelated to each other. Just one of those guys I guess.
