Measure them up for me. It is a keeper league so I am looking to get in on Longoria just before his value truly takes off.
I'd be trading away Tex, Ordonez, and maybe Beckett.... for Longoria, Hoffman, and another. However, to me, it comes across as Tex for Longoria. I don't keep the other players. I am getting a first round pick in next year's draft and a small upgrade this year to boot. I think I need a push to make this possibly. I am a pretty big Tex fan and woudl love to see what he does in New York. But the offer is on the table.
I already have Mig Cabrera to cover at first. I also have Hanley at SS and Braun in OF. Longoria would shore me up with some nice keepers for next three years. I have CC and Peavy as keeper pitchers.
Thoughts??? I'll reply to any links left for me. Thanks

I don't like it. I understand your reasoning with the position switch (Cabrera is now only 1B eligible), but I think you're loosing a lot in the deal, even if you aren't keeping the others. As someone who's also in a keeper league, I'd pass.

I agree with this, because Chris Davis and Kevin Youkilis will also be losing 3b eligibility. It's a shallow position talent-wise this year and is only gonna get worse. But it really does seem like you're giving up way too much.
