I was countered the following trade in response to an initial trade of
Mark Buehrle and Johnny Damon for Troy Tulowitzki
One of the drivers for my trade offer is a roster crunch when Justin Upton comes
Anyway, the counter trade was Aaron Hill and Kevin Gregg for Troy Tulowitzki.
I am in a standard 5*5 Yahoo Roto league.
My initial reaction was to reject this trade outright, but when I started looking
at the stats it jumped out at me is now .085 ahead of Aaron Hill's and Troy is
trending up (over 1.00 ops since June 1) while Hill is trending down (about .760
-.770 ops since June 1).
Anyway, I started looking at the impact of losing Gregg on saves. I am now in
2nd place 8 saves in front of third but 1 save behind first. I figure this trade
kills my shot of gaining first place, but I likely can still retain second, unless one
of my closers loses his spot, which if you look at my roster is possible.
So my questions here would be:
(1) Accept, Reject, or Counter
(2) If reject, how would you handle the upcoming roster crunch
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera (would slide him 2 second if trade is made)
3B: Miggy Cabrera

Bn: Hawpe (is slumping)
DL: Justin Upton
SP: Beckett, Lee, Ubaldo Jiminez, Nolasco, Lowe, Buehrle
RP: Fuentes, Gregg, Francisco, Nunez, Johnson (Baltimore..picked up at trade deadline
with Francisco on the DL and the cause of my roster crunch).
