Should I make this trade? And why?? My full roster is below.
I get Josh Hamilton, Aramis Ramirez, and Scott Kazmir
I give Joey Votto
I am leaning towards not accepting because Votto is a beast, and I am concerned about Kazmir and ARam.

C (2) - Russell Martin, John Baker 1B (2) - Miguel Cabrera, Joey Votto 2B (2) - Alexei Ramirez, Kelly Johnson 3B (2) - Alex Rodriguez, Mike Lowell SS (2) - Stephen Drew, JJ Hardy OF (4) - Carlos Lee, Matt Holiday, Andre Either, Justin Upton, Gary Sheffield UTIL (1) - Billy Butler SP (6) - Johan Santana, Zack Greinke, Aaron Harang, John Danks, Paul Maholm, John Maine, Chien-Ming Wang, Tommy Hanson, Hiroki Kuroda (DL), John Smoltz (DL) RP (2) - Jonathan Broxton, Kevin Gregg, Chad Qualls

I dont even know why your considering not doing this!! Votto is expendible... and Aram is a nice to have depending on how much time he has left in the season... Josh hamilton is a better hitter in a better lineup than Votto and Kazmir throws smoke.... You should do this and drop Butler and Maholm
Thanks for my help.... I just wish you were a little more patient before commenting on my post like that.....
I would definitely jump on it! Your league title is decided in August/September/October, I'm assuming. By this time, we can assume all three of the players you're getting will be perfectly healthy. If ANY of the three players you're getting puts up the numbers they are capable of, I feel like their peak is better than Votto's. That being said, it's a risky move but I'd definitely go for it.
