Some significant juggling has been going on with my line-up and this is another trade on the table. 12 team 5x5 roto league. I'm in first place thanks to good starts from Haren and Billingsley, both of whom I've traded.
I give: Hamilton, A. Gonzalez, U. Jimenez
I get: D. Wright, F. Rodriguez, M. LaPorta
*edit: new offer I give: Beltran, A. Gonzalez, U. Jimenez
I get: D. Wright, Volquez, M. LaPorta
C - B. Molina C - Napoli 1B - A. Gonzalez 2B - K. Johnson 3B - Fontenot SS - Bartlett CI - Bonifacio MI - Uggla OF - Beltran OF - Granderson OF - Span OF - Andruw Jones OF - Fowler Util - David Ortiz BN - Hamilton DL - Aramis Ramirez DL - Glaus P - Kazmir P - Scherzer P - C. Young P - Harden P - Grabow P - Soria P - Fuentes P - Marmol P - Bailey BN - U. Jimenez BN - P. Hughes DL - K. Escobar
The other day my 3B and CI were A-Ram and Lowell. The first is hurt, the second I traded before the first was hurt.
I think I am giving up too much for Wright and that I am potentially solid at closer. He doesn't have much of a starting staff; there's nobody I'd swap in for K-Rod. However, I am looking like crap at 3B and CI so maybe this could be helpful. What do you think?

I actually like the trade for you. Yes, your closer is pretty good in soria. However, let's face it, Fuentes is just about to find his self in the minors. Your infield could use Wright's presence, and the addition of K-Rod only means good things for your bullpin, as it allows marmol or bailey to become expendable.
I personally wouldn't do it. I know Wright is a slow starter and will put up big numbers eventually but Hamilton and AGon are no slouches. I think you will get more production from AGOn and Hamilton than you will from Wright this year and would stay put and not worry about your closer situation at least in this deal.
