I really need speed but this seems like a bit of a high price to pay. I am in 11th out of 12 in this H2H league with a million categories (see roster notes below) and my only real source of speed is Carl Crawford. The owner I'm trying to deal with is in first and already has Gardner and Rios for sb. HE HAS ALREADY TURNED DOWN KERSHAW AND CARLOS LEE FOR ELLSBURY, AND JUST COUNTERED WITH SANDOVAL AND KERSHAW FOR ELLSBURY.
Do I accept? OR, do I counter??? WHAT COUNTER SHOULD I OFFER??? I PROMISE I WILL HELP ANYONE WITH THEIR QUESTION OF THEY HELP ME!!!
Here's his team and then mine is below with league settings: HIS TEAM C-Posada 1B-Morneau 2B-Cano SS-Rollins 3B-McGehee CI-Berkman MI-Carrol OF-Rios, Victorino, Lewis, Gardner UTIL- Bosch, G.

Bad trade for you. Giving up way too much for a speed guy who is coming off an injury. Hold on to Pablo and let him heat up if you want to trade him. Hopefully Sanchez comes back and can provide a little life to the offense in front of Pablo.
I don't think you can do this. It's definitely too much and the big problem would be that you would be left with a gaping hole at 3B once you made the trade. If you're situation was a little better and you had a better option to plug in at 3B besides Beckham then I might consider it if you really wanted Ellsbury that bad, however, you cannot afford to give up this much for Ellsbury. I agree with the other poster, I'd look for SBs elsewhere. Maybe try to get someone who won't cost as much like a Pierre, Gardner or even Podsednik.
