OK, quick background: 12-team, long-term keeper league. Players can be kept indefinitely, but each team gets a certain number of freeze points based on previous year's finish, and each player counts for a certain number of points towards that total based on previous year's performance.
I'm looking to move MIguel Montero, since I'm keeping Napoli at C/1B and have been offered the following package:
Now, I can't really keep Utley or Young, as I have Pedroia already at 2B, and Mike Young is just too expensive and old to squeeze into my freeze team. So this trade effectively works out, for me, to giving up Montero for Mauer and Cole. I guess it just feels like I'm giving the other team quite a lot.
Another possibility, that I have yet to offer but could go over well, with a different team, is:
I give: Miguel Montero, Carl Crawford
Thoughts on either, or both, very much appreciated. I need to make one of these deals happen pretty soon. People are getting antsy.
