    Welcome to the league. I’m not sure what P2F has told you, but the first big event you’ll be here for is the annual new player draft, starting January 14th.

    Marlins will deal Bour and Cooper will win the NL batting title so I thought it was a move I had to make.

    Actually, the plan right now is to platoon Bour and Cooper. The marlins are very high on him!

    Trade Analysis:

    Why this trade makes sense for the Marlins.
    - Garrett Cooper has hit at every level in the minors and has always earned his promotions. Cooper got to play in a hitter friendly park last year in AAA (thin air) and the power showed up hitting 173 wRC+. That promoted the Yankees to trade for him where he put up a very solid 118 wRC+. Due to the presence of Greg Bird Cooper was shipped to the Marlins and is expected to serve as a platoon bat/pinch hitter for the Marlins this year. While Cooper may never be a star he has a shot of having a Lyle Overbay type of career.

    Why this trade makes sense for the White Sox.
    While the White Sox loved Cooper very dearly the presence of a Blue Flag on Lawrie gives him the roster flexibility he needs right now. The hope is Lawrie will sign with a team that will use him as a super utility player and provide a league average bat at multiple positions -2B, 3B, OF.

    Who Wins this trade?
    MikeM

    Who loses this trade?
    28 other LoD owners who missed Cooper on the cheap.

    It would have been even better if it had stopped him talking about Cooper too

    Figure with the recent trade acquisition we would update our trade block. Yes you have seen it correctly the newly acquired Wil Myers is on the block already for the right return.

    Cincy Reds Trade Block
    1B - Wil Myers
    Closers - Kelvin Herrera or Cody Allen or Aroldis Chapman – Depending on the return we can move a closer
    Catchers - Salvador Perez or Welington Castillo – We can move a C, there are a lot of teams needing one
    3B – Maikel Franco
    OF – Shin Soo-Choo is available or possibly Adam Jones if you are looking for a CF
    SP – Kevin Gausman or Jake Odorizzi or Kenta Maeda
    All Picks and Prospects available

    We are looking to acquire a 1B, OF, SP, and potentially high picks.

    We find the trade very fair. We gave up a little more but fills our roster better overall. They are ranked very close on dynasty lists and are the same age.

    We don't mind him at 1B or OF. Gave up some average, OBP for a little more Pop and Steals.

    By any chance were those lists written by Brett Sayre?

    Not sure how there is Wil Myers hate like this considering all the hate we were getting on Rendon from everyone. I think the best offer we saw was Justin Bour and some change which was a joke.

    Either way this fits us a lot better and is very fair in our eyes. We like Myers at 1B or OF.

    Disagree. My offer of Pham + Renfroe was a lot better than Bour + shit, or even Myers.
