I like what you're getting. Your getting a top notch SP, IMO and a very good Closer that won't hurt your ERA and WHIP (problem is only with opportunities). It's a very fair deal as Roberts is very valuable in Roto leagues (if this is one). This deal slightly favors you, IMO. Albeit I am very high on Beckett.
I'm a Sox fan, so I'd especially like to get Beckett. I love Capps' extremely low walk totals, and I'm hoping he's not really feeling Capps true value because he ended last year on the DL. Capps is having a solid spring. And Beckett shouldn't have a problem besting last year's 12 wins.
This is a standard 5x5 Roto league.
This is actually my counter-offer to his offer of Wood and Matsui for B. Roberts. Not a bad offer, but Wood's injury-proneness worries me, and I don't like offering too much for closers anyway.
If you can't use both Pedroia / Roberts, and you can't play without 2 closers, and you need a #1 starter, looks like you should offer Pedroia /jimenez for Beckett/Wood, 'cause it's better to have Roberts/Beckett/Wood, than Pedroia/Jimenez/1 closer.

Agreed....but I would try for Fuentes before Wood.
See, with Fuentes, I worry about him losing his job to Arredondo, though it is unlikely because Anaheim isn't paying him all that money to setup or middle relief. But he will turn 34 this season. Wood = injury prone, and R. Perez can step right in. Francisco, no extensive track record closing, walks are high. Rivera, don't want him, he's a Yankee. And he's 39 and way overdue for a decline in performance anyway. Overvalued. Corpas, has Street and Buchholz looking over his shoulder, and no consistent track record closing.
Fuentes is probably the best one to go for of the group.
