I don't like your trade. You still have a good team but it was better with A-Rod and Nathan

I don't think it was that bad a trade, you got 2 very good hitters, but Arod's value isn't at its highest at the moment. I think you've got a lot of depth on your bench. I try to package 2 good players or a great one. Also, you can probably rip someone off for Liriano. He's been great, but since you're not in a keeper league, things will get tougher the second time around. He's been amazing thus far, and I'm sure he will be great from here on out, but you can probably get someone to overpay.

Your SS is the main weakness on your team. I would consider trying to move Furcal and one of your bench players (Burrell specifically) to upgrade to a Tejada/Reyes/ type guy. You may even want to throw in a SP, since you have so many of them, to upgrade over there.

I think that your OF is excellent, and while AROD is better than Bay or Cabrera, these two are both in the same league as AROD (i.e. within 1-2 tiers of AROD), while Pods is overrrated. I think that AROD+Pods is a wash, but that Nathan is better than C Young. It wasn't a terrible deal, because you upgraded your OF tremendously. In terms of your lineup, I would bench Aramis for now, and start Miggy at 3B with either Patterson (I'm assuming it's Corey, not John the SP) or Burrell at OF.

You definately upgraded your squad as far as positions go, but you have a weak left side of the infield...i agree in trying to unload liriano. if you play the cards right, you might be able to get a carpenter or halladay, and i think they will do far better than liriano in the 2nd half. Work on unloading Pierre or Burrell in a package have bay and beltran, you just have to hope that they keep it up. you might even try and trade patterson and burrell for sizemore or something along those lines ... p?t=225288

I think that trade is very close since you sold ARod low, but you did upgrade your OF a helluva lot. Defintely package your SS and a bench player or two for an upgrade.

Help out if you please: ... p?t=225717
