That wouldn't be near enough for me. If I was going to trade you Bautista or Hamilton, I would demand Bumgarner as the SP. Even then, I'm not sure you have a bat that you could package with him to be worth the deal. (This is assuming you don't include Pedroia or Beltre, which you shouldn't.) You could try and sell him on Marte's hot start, but that may not do it.

Help with mine?

First off, no.
Second off, I wouldn't. Do you want the Angel who is going from a hitter's park to a pitcher's park and hasn't started off great or the guy coming off a wrist injury (which often takes time to heal) and is having back problems? I sure don't.

I think you should seek home runs from a different source. Who has Cano and could you entice him with Pedroia plus one? Who has Justin Upton? Adam Jones? Granderson that maybe you could stash? Give me your opinion on my roster, link is in my sig. Thanks.

I would keep Iwakuma over Gallardo. Dude is pitching VERY well in a new hitter friendly park against some HARD hitting teams.

Craig will pick it up. I think he will be good for .300 30HR 100RBI 90R this year if he stays healthty. I think Hamilton will revert back to his MVP caliber self eventually but Bautista is hurt right now. I think you would have to offer more for one of those two just simply because of the name. Plus I'm sure whoever owns them paid big money for them in your draft and won't easily part with them

Wouldn't trade Craig for the big bat simply because he has 1b eligibility adn that is important to your team. Try Pence and Iwakuma for Bruce.
