So this is a Dynasty League with 5x5 cats plus OBP, SLG, Holds, and K/BB.
His offer is this:
1B Albert Pujols 2B Aaron Hill SP Clayton Kershaw
3B Evan Longoria 2B Dustin Pedroia 3B Alex Gordon (DL) SP Ubaldo Jimenez
He's also shown a willingness to do a Pujols/Hill for Longoria/Pedroia swap. Does that deal seem more reasonable with fewer players on the move?
My biggest qualm with this offer is that in a Dynasty League, Evan Longoria seems like a good bet to be a producer for a long time given that he's just 23. That said, getting Pujols would give me the #1 fantasy player who seemingly will age pretty well, especially that he's only 30. Gordon is a huge question mark at this point but has potential to break out, while Pedroia is the reigning AL MVP. Thoughts? I will WHIR!

pull the trigger you are getting the best player in baseball, bar none....in A-Puj, If Hill keeps producing like he is, from a season off of a serious concussion, he should perform well to Pedroia status, throw in a young stud arm like Kershaw......damn he could pull out Lincecum numbers next year, ITS not out of the question.
I know that what's holding you back from pulling the trigger is Longo...I've had the same struggles all year long with him (although I've kept him)...this offer looks good enough to part ways with him though. I traded Aaron Hill early and am regretting it. Plus you get Pujols who ='s Fantasy MVP. Kershaw is going to be a stud...better than Jimenez In my opinion.
Pujols and Hanley on the same squad will be hard to beat for years to come.
Ah yea, then I would do it as long as you are filling in positions alright, can you not put Pablo in at catcher? I respect Salty being your catcher but if you could put Pablo there it would be a huge upgrade
