thx for the help on mine
i know ppl will disagree, but id do that if i were you..
machado is a stud. gonna fill the stat sheet
Rizzo is a masher. gonna come close to pujols power totals
Scherzer is a straight up G with 10k potential every time he toes the rubber..

Pujols is the greatest hitter of the generation, but the slight declining slope along with the plantar fasciatis..i would SELL SELL SELL

I think thats acatually an amazing package to get back for you. If i were you, id pull the trigger right now.
Believe in Machado. Kid is all kinds of freaky. Great haul for you. Go accept now before the other owner realizes hes giving up 3 absolute studs for one stud with one foot and a declining stat rate ;-D

BELIEVE IN MACHADO!!!

btw, id drop arenado and lincecum in that circumstance. your P is great. lincy is prolly holding you back. Arenado is very good, but nowhere near the kind of value that machado will give you. with your current team, if you pull the trigger on this trade, i guarantee you are the heavy favorite to wear the championship belt in September

I agree, I'd do it as well. Selling now on Pujols is a smart move, as he's no linger the MVP-caliber player that we're used to. Getting back 3 young studs is great, too. Machado and Rizzo are two of the best young players at their positions, and Scherzer is a MAN when it comes to the K's. I really think this deal benefits you strongly, and I'd do it before the guy offering it realizes what he's getting himself into. Drop Arenado and Lincecum/Reynolds. Chances Mark keeps this production up is highly unlikely.

I guess I'd do it. You probably wouldn't be happy giving up your first round pick, and I wouldn't be either, but Rizzo will be a good replacement. I also think Scherzer can easily be a top ten pitcher this year. Not too high on Machado, but I think Rizzio and Scherzer alone would do this for me.

I'd also do that deal, dropping Lincecum and Lawrie.

do it,,,fast. zero question that you should do this. Rizzo alone could put up Pujol numbers this year. Take Machado and the extra K's to the bank.

It's a haul. It's, not bad. I'd like it even more if this was a keeper.

Essentially, it's Reynolds (I'd drop him), Pujols, and Lincecum for Machado,Rizzo, and Scherzer.

I thought I'd be in the minority by saying to take it, but I would do it.
