Ok. I'm not sure if I should accept this trade for Johan and Brian Roberts. As of now I am in 1st place with a 6-2 record.

Here is what my team looks like now..

10 team league (10th pick)
Head to Head weekly matchups. Points system.

C - Victor Martinez
1B - Helton
2B - Marcus Giles
3B - Glaus
SS - Carlos Guillen
OF - Vernon Wells
OF - Ichiro
OF - ---EMPTY---
Util - David Ortiz
Util - Justin Morneau

Bench - Russell Martin


SP - Chein-Ming-Wang
SP - Dan Haren
P - Brett Myers
P - Brandon Webb
P - Aaron Harrang
RP - Billy Wagner
RP - Bobby Jenks

Bench - Chris Ray
Bench - Tim Lincecum
Bench - James Shields
Bench - Accardo
Bench - Street

DL - Chris Carpenter

Here is what my team will look like if I make this trade

C - Victor Martinez
1B - Helton
2B - Brian Roberts
3B - Blake, or Braun
SS - Carlos Guillen
OF - Josh Willingham
OF - Ichiro
OF - Teahen
Util - David Ortiz
Util - Justin Morneau


SP - Johan Santana
SP - Dan Haren
P - Brett Myers
P - Brandon Webb
P - Aaron Harrang
RP - Billy Wagner
RP - Bobby Jenks

Bench - Tim Lincecum
Bench - James Shields
Bench - Accardo
Bench - Street

DL - Chris Carpenter

I would be giving Martin (who I have no use for), Glaus (who I am tired of), Wells, Ray (who is expendable with all the closers I have), and Wang (who I would gladly give up for Johan), and Marcus Giles.

The thing is, will my team survive with that outfield? I'm going to have a LOADED staff after this trade. The way I'm seeing it is, I'm stealing Johan and Roberts from him. The only thing is, my OF is the only part of my team that can't really take the hit of this trade. Willingham and Teahen are playing great now, I'm just worried that they might fall off by the end of the season. Braun or Blake I'm not worried about, since I don't like the hwole idea of Glaus taking days off 1 or 2 times a week, and him not being 100%. I'm figuring, do the trade and if I start losing, just trade Johan for an all-star 3B and OFer.

Your OF is really thin as is and I don't think you should stretch it out any more. Johan is great, but I'd gladly take the staff you have now without him. I don't think this trade is necessary. If you want an upgrade at 2B move Martin and Ray.

I agree. You are by no means desperate for a Starting pitcher. Nomatter how nice it is to aquire Santana, you shouldnt put your lineup in jepardy to do so. Your outfield is treading on thin ice as it is. I wouldnt trade what you cant afford to trade, to gain something that you dont even really need. I hope you get what I'm saying.

Care to help with my problem?

If I somehow get the deal done without giving up Wells, do I go through with it?
