You should be pushing a tad more value for JJ and so, I'd be inclined to keep it at Beltran/Wandy or Beltran/Slowey for M-Cab alone. If that doesn't get it done, I wouldn't mind Beltran/Cain or Beltran/Wainwright for M-Cab.
hard to exactly say because Cab is on fire but Beltran is also on fire im biased towards beltran tho because i'm a mets fan... plus josh johnson is a pretty decent pitcher... I'd probably hold off on this deal for now
I think you are giving a little over value for Miggy, but not by much. I love doing 2 for 1's when I am getting an elite top tier player. With Hanson and Smoltz you got a shot at another quality starter, but neither will give you what J Johnson will . I think J Upton will be closer to Beltran than Konerko (whose production may fall of the side of a cliff) will Miggy and your pitching depth is solid.
In other words J-Up better than Konerko, Miggy better than Beltran, and the starting depth to cover the loss of Johnson.
If you can find a closer with the open roster spot, you've done very well for yourself! I say do the trade....
I agree you need an upgrade at 3B (I have the same problem in one of my leagues and 3B is a hard position to trade for) and you may have depth to cover the players traded (especially SP), but as much as I like Miggy, I think you are giving up way too much.
It's too bad, because the trade makes sense position wise, and I understand the frustration that the other owner won't add anything, but isn't there another possible trading partner who will give you value for what you are offering? If not, I would wait and see what develops, especially as other owners see their SP may not hold up.

I voted for the trade because you're right that you need an upgrade at 3B, but I'd try pushing for more in return - Beltran is no slouch himself, and his power production is going to be just south of the range that Cabrera is capable of. Josh Johnson, too, is a great pitcher, and his K/BB is absurd right now - but even if you lost him, I feel that the rest of your rotation could absorb the loss. Although I feel you need Cabrera, I can't help but be torn on the issue since it seems you're also giving up too much as well. viewtopic.php?f=29&t=384532
Albert Pujols is to baseball what Jesus is to religion. He's better at this than I've ever been at anything in my life. He's better at this than you'll ever be, at anything. Pujols has a gift.
