    How do I make the first offer when I know my player evaluation isn't great? Or evaluating what my team needs?

    I've promoted Rodgers and Riley, plus added Pinder from FA.

    I've got two offers from the same team:

    Heaney $1 for Nola
    McCutchen $20 and Gioloto $10 for Harper

    And from a different owner:

    Hampson $10 and Honeywell $2 for Lowe and Kikuchi
    Nicky Lopez $10 for Kikuchi

    Plus the team in first wants me to make the first offer. He could use help in AVG, BB-KO, and HD.

    Thoughts on either offer? Or what I could offer the first place team?

    I think that you'd be the loser in both deals...Harper is Harper, and he'll get better. Is he going to hit .300 again? Who knows, but he's a hell of a trade chip if nothing else. And that deal gives you two middling players for him...pass. Same for Heaney for Nola...

    Hampson is already down on the farm and Honeywell is still recovering...pass as well.

    I MIGHT consider Lopez for Kiguchi, but I'd need a pretty good sweetener.

    If youre dumping, perhaps you should try the following exercise:

    Look at each teams roster and mark the keepers you want from them. Then prioritize as one list and go to the owner with the most desirable keeper to you and ask him what he wants for said player. Then go down the list.

    You have a very good to great group of keepers and for the life of me I have no idea why youre dumping with Harper, Trout and Benentendi on your team but if you feel strongly about it, the guys you get need to be better than the guys below.

    C - Realmuto $24 1st year keeper
    2B - Brandon Lowe $9
    MI - Merrifield $16 2nd year keeper
    OF - Benintendi $16 2nd year keeper
    SP - Nola $11 3rd year keeper
    SP - Odorizzi $1
    SP - Paddack $10
    P - Alvarado $14
    P - Hicks $11



    Remember, you only get to dump once and you shouldnt be in a rush. Those contending should be in a rush as the longer the wait, the longer they dont get the stats from guys who will help them. You should be getting a ton of interest from owners for Trout and Harper. Pit them against each other. Play it up. Dont settle.


    good luck

    So the team in first is definitely interested in Harper, but he wants me to make the first offer.

    My updated roster:

    C - Realmuto $24 1st year keeper
    1B - Pujols $10
    2B - Brandon Lowe $9
    3B - Riley $5
    SS - Kingery $9
    CI - Forsythe $10
    MI - Merrifield $16 2nd year keeper
    OF - Harper $43 7th year keeper
    OF - Trout $43 7th year keeper
    OF - Benintendi $16 2nd year keeper
    OF - Renfroe $5
    DH - Pederson $5
    SP - Nola $11 3rd year keeper
    SP - Roark $1
    SP - Kikuchi $17
    SP - Odorizzi $1
    SP - Paddack $10
    P - Alvarado $14
    P - Stephenson $10
    P - Hicks $11
    P - Hudson $5
    BN - O'Hearn $3
    BN - Rodgers $10
    BN - Bader $7
    BN - Camargo $5
    BN - Pinder $5
    BN - Junis $1
    BN - Bradley $8
    IL - Wendle $9
    MN - Biggio $5
    MN - Sheffield $5
    MN - Puk $5
    MN - Singer $5

    Now his roster:

    C - Lucroy $2
    1B - Hosmer $10
    2B - Muncy $13 1st year keeper
    3B - Ramirez $14 3rd year keeper
    SS - Seager $10 3rd year keeper
    CI - Bruce $1
    MI - Crawford $10
    OF - Bellinger $7 2nd year keeper
    OF - Eaton $11
    OF - Garcia $10
    OF - Haniger $8 1st year keeper
    DH - Tilson $10
    SP - German $4
    SP - Perez $10
    SP - Ryu $18
    SP - Caleb Smith $1
    SP - Soroka $1
    P - Luke Jackson $1
    P - Jansen $19
    P - Neris $10
    P - Paxton $10 3rd year keeper
    BN - Adames $8
    BN - Enrique Hernandez $1
    BN - Luplow $10
    BN - Keuchel $7
    BN - Jefry Rodriguez $10
    BN - Leclerc $20
    BN - Peacock $2
    IL - Altuve $55
    IL - Kluber $44
    MN - Mountcastle $1
    MN - Hays $5
    MN - Kelenic $1
    MN - Jesus Sanchez $1

    Am I crazy for asking for Bellinger, Smith, and Soroka for Harper? I know Bellinger will replace Harper as one of my 6 keepers, plus Smith and Sorkoka upgrade my pitching for this year at least.

    Thoughts from the RJ crowd?

    I think he is very unlikely to make that deal. It appears Bellinger is much more valuable than Harper by himself unless I am missing something

    First of all if he doesnt want to make an offer, i would tell him that i am good.

    Second, on what planet would anyone move bellinger alone for bryce, let alone two other valuable keepers?
    If that was me i would tell you to add in trout as well. I mean your offer is flat out terrible.

    Completely agree here. I wouldn't even consider that as a serious offer.
