My team needs some power, badly. I was just offered this trade.
Give David Wright and Michael Bourn Get Carlos Pena and Michael Young
My gut says reject since I am giving up the best/highest drafted player, but I'm not sure on this one. I don't really need Bourn since I have Reyes for SBs.

No. Bad deal for you. A lot of people think Wright will be back to hitting 25+ HR so don't trade him looking for power as he should give you some. Plus he is the best player in the deal. I also wouldn't be too sure that Reyes is going to give you SB. If he is the only SB threat you have then I would hang on to Bourn. Wright is a top 20 player right now so expect that kind of return for him. If you need power than look for Ryan Howard don't settle for Pena.

terrible deal i wouldnt even consider it, if you're gonna shop wright for power, try and use him to get one of the top tier 1b
