Reyes would be a great addition to your hitters and would give you what should be a very dominant and well-rounded offense. Not having an ace to build your pitching staff around hurts, but it's worth it here as long as you make sure to grab some good pitchers in the 2nd round. If you do this I'd say 2, if not all 3, of your picks in round 2 should be pitchers.
The quality of the team you're trading with should be taken into account (he's getting a great deal here) but that alone probably isn't enough to keep you from doing it.
He finished last last season. He's loaded with extra picks but his last keeper is terrible. I've been doing all I can to try and pry a 1st rounder off of him without any luck. Pitching is extremely deep though and I think I will be able to build a pretty solid rotation with those 3 second round picks.
It sucks just having to toss Reyes back for nothing too. That's why I'm leaning towards doing it too. There's talk of Reyes being dealt too which could possibly also increase his value.
