12/8/2019 Would love trade advicesheikyerboudi
" I offered another player Joss, Seaver, Appling and Heilmann for Verlander. " Verlander's '19 season is probably the best in ATG. The afore mentioned players offered for him are all mediocre guys in ATG. You can't win by "filling holes" with mediocre players - if you do, guess what - you have a mediocre team.
I'm just sayin' - think before you trade. Oh, and nycubsfan, I'm sorry if it seemed like I was picking on you - I get a little annoyed by the constant offers sometimes, but that's why there's a Decline button ;-)

Peace, Out - The Sheik
