    I'm for that.

    I just want to be as open as I can about this Trout deal to make sure that I am getting as much as I possibly can. Sorry if that annoys anyone, especially the owners making viable trade offers for him, but I want to do this right.

    There are currently 3 owners who have reached out and made an initial outreach worth our time. We will probably make counter proposals later today or tomorrow. If anyone else is planning on making an offer please do so soon before it's too late! Thanks.

    Yes, that's annoying. The last Trout owner traded him in about four hours, and I feel you should aim for the same standard.

    What package did he get when he traded him?

    It was probably the most criticized trade in league history. Keep in mind this was done in dec 2015.

    Jonathan Schoop
    Steven Matz
    Sonny Gray
    Micheal Conforto
    Ken Giles
    Rafael Devers
    1st and 2nd round picks

    for:

    Mike Trout
    Tony Sipp
    Scooter Gennett
    2nd and 3rd round picks

    Possibly the most criticized trade in forum league history. Deservedly so. Don’t trade Mike Trout in a keep forever league with no salaries.

    I'd be surprised if the next Trout trade tops that return.

    Conforto, Schoop and Devers were considerably less valuable than today.

    Just for fun,

    This is my offer that did not make the counter-offer threshold.
    Thought it was decent. Will be interested to see the next-level offers.

    Hitters
    Whit Merrifield
    Scott Schebler
    Max Kepler

    Pitchers
    Dallas Keuchel

    Prospects

    Yeah, I seem to recall Schoop being waiver wire trash for a while not too long before that trade. Conforto still has big question marks imo, due to his issues hitting lefties. This year he also managed a 156 wRC+ against sliders, in spite of a 4.2% walk rate and 44.4% k rate. That doesn't seem likely to continue. He murders righties though. Devers looks pretty sweet long term.

    Decent? Can you honestly say you would even think about it if you were the one with Trout?
