Wanted to know what people thought about a trade I just made. 24 teams, 225 man rosters (40 majors/185 minors), $115m salary cap, standard scoring. Minor leaguers, once they are called up, are cost-controlled for five seasons with the ability to drop them during any offseason (salary escalating from $.3m to $4m over time).
Matt Kemp (contract through 2015, escalating from $13.65m this year to $18.99m in 2015)
Alexei Ramirez ($8.2m through 2013, plus an option for 2014 at the same salary)
Bryan Lahair (2nd year of a rookie contract, so $.6m)
George Springer and Robbie Erlin (minor leaguers)
1st, 2nd, and 3rd round picks in the upcoming international players draft
I'm trying to rebuild my middle-of-the-road team. Obviously, I gave up the best player, but I think I got some good prospects back plus Ramirez (who I can probably flip for more prospects), and also cleared about $5m in salary space immediately (plus I won't be paying Kemp $19m in 2015, which he almost certainly won't be worth). Thoughts?
