10 team, 10x10 H2H league, 5 keepers per year. We have already had our draft and my team and the other guy's teams are below. I feel I have a pretty strong team and not sure if I should make any changes but I have been offered arguably the second best fantasy player in the game(Hanley) for my Wright and AGon. Would I be giving up too much to get him and do you think it would better my team? I am thinking about asking him for a second player to make it even like his first baseman, since I won't have anyone to put in my lineup. But he probably wont since he has MCab and Fielder. What do you guys think? If not, can you think of a counter? Thanks and leave your links.

Tough call here but you are trading for the 2nd best player in the league IMO and you should have plenty of time to pick up/trade for someone to play 1st base for you so I would jump on this trade. I'm a big fan of trading up like this pre season since there's plenty of time to make up for that extra position you are giving up.
I wouldn't pull that trade though very tempting to get the 2nd best player in the league but to lose Agon and Wright is tough. David Wright based on several projections from the best in the business is getting his power back and he should be around the 25 hr/20 sb range. AGon will hit his 30+ HR, so I don't think it betters your team.
To be completely honest with you, I think you stay with what you have. You are not losing at all at SS with Rollins and the rest of your squad is solid. I'd be concerned about Drew Stubbs but that might just be cause I'm not high on him.
You have a solid rotation with Halladay, Hernandez and (hopefully) Hamels. Good closer in Soria and Jenks, though might look into grabbing someone else more reliable maybe like Francisco Cordero.

I was going to say don't do the trade until I saw this post in the thread. I think it's really a very legitimate counter. Simply getting Hanley for Wright/AGon really drops your team in the power and run producing department. Sure you'll gain steals, but Wright can run too. Getting Fielder or MCab in exchange for adding Rollins softens the blow to power and definitely makes it worth it. Rollins would be a great add for him too at SS... I assume he's trying to get Alexei off his bench, but he should be doing that anyway at one of his UTIL positions.
I say pass on this. Hanley is no joke if you can't have him, Rollins is one of the next tier of guys that make a good replacement. Gonzalez and Wright are too good to give. I think he's banking on you selling low on Wright after his down year last year.
