Trading Moncada

Post by pioneer98 »

I badly need starting pitching. What should I be able to get for 3 cheap years of Yoan Moncada? Moncada is blocked by Daniel Murphy in my lineup, and I also have 2 other prospects that can play 2B (Ozzie Albies and Franklin Barreto).

I made this offer: Moncada and Zack Godley for Justin Verlander. Moncada and Godley's contracts are paid for and so I'd be taking 100% Verlander's salary, which is very high. So I asked the other team to pay 20% of Verlander's salary.

I made the same offer for Chris Archer. Acher's salary is less than Verlander's, and he's younger. And I asked the other team to pay about 30% of Archer's salary.

Is this unrealistic? I offered both of these teams because both are weak at 2B. And I can throw in additional prospects if needed (this is the team that has a giant pile of prospects). I could even probably agree to just take on the whole contract of either pitcher. These were my opening bids.
