That's serious talent you're adding. I don't know much about budgetted rosters or how this messes with yours, but 2 stud SP, a lateral C move, and a top 3 or 4 SS? Sweet. This surely places you firmly in the hunt if you can fit them in.
Our payroll is $200... here is my roster, keepers are planned to be
Suzuki, R Zim, Bartlett, Markakis, McLouth, Bell, Broxton, Hellickson, Lee and Wells.
If I don't make any trades I will keep Damon and Andrus.
So, without trades my payroll would stand at $88, leaving me a nice $112 for the draft.
If I made both trades, I would then have only $73, which is a huge difference. Our draft is round-priced,
starting at $25 and working down each round. I would still be without a 2nd basemen....
I do not like the catcher move, as Posada is old and not playing as much, and Molina had knee surgery. Suzuki is a top 5 I think.
Bartlett produced more points per at-bat than Rollins, but adding a good SP would make up for it....
