10 team roto league with three keepers. A.Gonzalez is not one of my keepers so I'm leaning towards accepting this. It would give me two picks in the 1st round and an upgrade in one of the later rounds. Good move?
Send Adrian Gonzalez, SD 1B from 1B to Remodelers Send 5th Round Draft Pick (46th Overall) to Remodelers Send 9th Round Draft Pick (86th Overall) to Remodelers Receive 4th Round Draft Pick (40th Overall) from Remodelers Receive 8th Round Draft Pick (78th Overall) from Remodelers
Other things to consider -
1) Longoria, Greinke and Sizemore are my keepers
2) The following trade was made a few days ago, which sort of sent the benchmark for draft pick trading.
TEAM A Sends Holliday TEAM A Sends 4th Round Draft Pick (40th Overall) TEAM A Sends 6th Round Draft Pick (60th Overall) TEAM A Receives 4th Round Draft Pick (38th Overall) TEAM A Receives 5th Round Draft Pick (58th Overall)
Well, at first glance I would say no. It would be possible to pick him up then. Also, why not keep him instead of Sizemore? I believe the guy trading Holliday got the short end of the stick in that other trade, though. If he only sent one pick, it would be better. With all of this said, I'd say make the trade only if you can get out of giving up the 9th round pick or maybe send a worse pick.

It took A LOT of prodding to get the other owner to up the ante to this. I don't think I can push my luck by asking for more. It's either this trade or nothing.
As for Sizemore, I like his upside. Going into last season he was a 1st rounder and I'm basically giving him a mulligan for last season since he was injured. All reports I've read say he's 100% now and ready to go.
I understand Sizemore over A-Gon.. I just don't know if I would trade him. You aren't gaining THAT much in this trade. I guess after keepers are chosen, maybe it will give you a good value pick. My gut in this situation is telling me to make him draft Adrian Gonzalez because it helps him way more. I don't have much experience in roto though, so take this for a grain of salt.

Really I'd probably lean more towards keeping gonzalez over sizemore.
I guess what it comes down to is do you think you can get a player as good as a-gone with that draft pick?
There are a lot of good players getting tossed back. Here's a short list of some of the best. My thought is, I make this trade I'll probably target a SS with my 1st pick (maybe Jeter to balance out the poor batting average of Longoria/Sizemore) then maybe the best available bat after that.
