Danny Bastista/Melvin Mora/Padilla for Boone/Abreu

What do you think about this trade? I have Mora at second base but could replace him with Boone. Good trade for me or am I giving up too much? He has Paul Byrd? Should I ask for him?

It's a good trade for you, assuming you have extra pitching. Whether or not the other player will accept it is the real question. I certainly wouldn't accept this if you offerred it to me. The only way I would trade a Boone or Alomar would be if I had a young 2B that I wanted to play and could get a lot in return.

If you look at it as Abreu for Batista, which is weighted in your favor, and Boone for Mora/Padilla, which is also weighted in your favor, you'll see what I mean.

I agree. By offering Hinske, you might be filling a need on the other team, whereas Batista, while a solid player, won't. If the other side is hurting at third, offer Hinske instead and see where it goes.

I'm not a big Byrd fan (although I know cwebb disagrees), but I still can't see him being included in this deal. You never know, though...
