I get: Jake Peavy, Mike Jacobs
He gets: Kazuo Matsui, Mark Reynolds, Julio Lugo, Oliver Perez
As always, value over replacement-player is the only thing that matters. Upgrading from Perez to Peavy is an unimaginable upgrade.
While losing Reynolds hurts right now, Lugo and Kaz are easily replaceable in all the but the deepest leagues. As long as there's some
viable option in the WW, it's bound to be nearly equivalent.
Worst case scenario, you turn around and trade Peavy for a complete stud
in the infield. Problem solved.
I don't think you can pass on this value.
I also don't think that this topic should have been in this forum, but I'm sure the Hamster will be along quickly enough.
