    Uh yeah, so if anyone has a 26-year old 5-star SP to trade for a couple middling players and a draft pick, LA is listening!

    You just offered up 3 2.5-star players. So if you use them all, that's like 7.5 stars right there. And Abbott is only 4.5 stars. Jeez.

    You have to play to win, man. Make me an offer.

    EDIT:

    According to the in-game report, LA's 1 and 13 prospects are (respectively) Enrique Gomez and Tanner Newsome. Would you have traded them and a second-round pick for Abbott? Serious question. I need middle infield help, and they'd have fit that need. Paul Mitchell and Eric Ballard are both available if you're interested.

    They were my 1st and 13th best prospects, according to the in-game BA report.

    Sure, although I would have tried to include a third prospect/player rather than the draft pick but failing that, I would have made that trade. Gomez is certainly going to be a better hitter than either of the two prospects you got. Or instead of Gomez, I have a 24-year old Triple-A catcher who you might have been able to acquire since that's a position of depth and he's already better than Gonzales will ever be.

    I'm not looking to dump Gomez since my current 2B is the aging and often hurt (but amazing when healthy) Bill Fleming but swap him and a 2nd for a 4 1/2 star pitcher who is 26? Seems reasonable.

    I have three Paul Mitchell's already pitching long relief in my bullpen.

    The #2 spot is open in my rotation, and Gonzalez and Jones are both now in DFA for more ease of finding them.

    You also had the worst rated farm system in the league, so I'm not sure this really means anything.

    Also, this discussion could potentially be a lot more interesting if we used scouting...
