I think you may have overpaid slightly. I really like Heyward and Choo going into this year.

That said, you did get the best hitter back in the deal and Latos I see as a nice upgrade over Danks.

Can you chk mine?

I just took the plunge cause I think Adrian is going to be unreal in BOS. Might be MVP status. Anyone else?

I think you gave up too much. AG is coming off shoulder surgery and Heyward is going to be a beast for years to come. I think you still could have done the deal and kept Choo then it would've been a little more even IMO.

I think I agree with everyone else. OK deal but probably not one I would have done. You got the best player in the deal and upgraded at SP. I just think Heyward is on the cusp of being a top 25 player.

I think you did well for yourself if Ellsbury bounces back, if not you might be a little light on of

Heyward is coming off surgery too, and unless he's a keeper for you i'm not convinced he's going to be as good as people think this year
For every Brett Myers there's a Nate McLouth...

You got guts, i will say that.
I love AGon, but there's no way i trade Heyward in a keeper, let alone add Choo, unless i'm blown away.

I think this is a good trade, You didn't have a real slugger at 1B and Latos is much better than Danks. Your outfield gets weaker but since you can move Cuddyer to the OF it shouldn't hurt you too much. You know what you are going to get from AG, but I would expect solid numbers from him, not MVP type stuff. I like this trade for you but don't love it.
