12 team keeper league, 5x5 roto scoring (keep 7 from year to year, plus up to 5 on minor league bench). This weekend I dealt Kinsler and Ad. Jones for Hamilton, S. Drew and Hart and then dealt minor leaguer Smoak for Blalock and Hanrahan. I'm currently running 2nd. I definitely feel like my team has a chance to compete for the money this year.
Now the offer on the table is my Hamilton, Aviles and Hanrahan for their Al. Ramirez and Lind. Would you make that trade? I'm thinking not. Giving up Hamilton seems like a bit much plus I'd be selling him low. Don't really want to deal Hamilton now, but would consider a lesser deal. Any ideas what I might offer this guy to help my team push to the top?

LaRoche, Greene, Hanrahan Minors: Milledge, Rasmus, Fowler, I. Stewart, G. Sanchez (can remain on minor league bench as long as I want to keep them there even though they might be in majors, but once I bring them up they stay on major bench unless they are sent back to the minors.)

I'm liking the first 2 deals you did....but there's no chance I'd do this. I would think the freight on a struggling alexei ramirez would be much much less....like, just drew and a closer, if thats what he was after.
Actually, I'd like to deal Hanrahan. I've got Bell, KRod and Percival for saves. I realize Percival is an injury risk and may not have the job all year, but I don't feel Hanrahan will get me that many saves that I want to use one of my three bench spots for him.
