I was offered Helton and Jose Guillen for my injured Vlad...I'm wondering if I should take it...

Yes, you should.

I still suspect Vlad is more seriously hurt than they are letting on. There are three types of shoulder separation, and as a rule none is more painful than another. However, they range from minor injuries to possibly career-changing. Until MRI's come back, nobody knows. Once they do come back, it'll be too late if it's a second or third degree.

Helton is going to get back to a top 15 player. If you can make good use of Guillen in the OF, I say go for it.
Help please:

Harden- 2.15 ERA, 7.61 K/9

Helton is pissing me off too. I drafted him over santana in my roto league because I went with the philosophy of hitting first. I need him to hit :-/

Well that's the thing, my hitting is really strong...even without Vlad.

C - V. Martínez (Cle - C)
1B - J. Morneau (Min - 1B)
2B - T. Iguchi (CWS - 2B)
3B - E. Chavez (Oak - 3B)
SS - M. Tejada (Bal - SS)
OF - V. Wells (Tor - OF)
OF - H. Matsui (NYY - OF)
OF - I. Suzuki (Sea - OF)
Util - A. Huff (TB - 1B, 3B, OF)

Guillen is the real hold up here. I don't really need him, but the owner seems to want to pawn him off for almost nothing. But I just can't see myself trading for someone who's going to ride on my bench most of the time. As it is, if I get Helton, I'll have to bench Morneau.

I know we expect a lot out of Helton, but at .293 it's not like he's really stinking up the place or anything. Just a bad week like all players have occasionally. I wouldn't be too upset or worried.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
