I've been offered my Phil Huges/Curtis Granderson FOR Brett Myers/Michael Borun. Should I accept or reject?

I'd probably take it, but in general I don't like to make moves unless I believe that i am WINNING the deal. There is no clear winner in this... but what I like about it is that having Bourne would help me plan for the draft knowing I am in good position for SB. You could make an argument that balance is good.. and I agree with this... but thats to be accomplished on draft day. In preparation for the draft, I like to have a good sense of what my plan is.

Please help with mine, where I'm considering a terrible balance in my protection list in favour of value.

Your team could use the speed that Bourn will bring you, but I wouldn't make this deal. I think going from Hughes and Grandy to Myers and Bourn is a downgrade in both positions.

You could use a little speed on your team, but I don't like this trade for you at all Granderson and Hughes are much higher in value than what you are getting back.

Bad deal. In a 10 team league, some SB guy like bourne is bound to be available on the wire at some point... Way too high a price on your end here.


Help with mine?
