I like it.

Longoria and Zimmerman are near identical while Bruce is a big upgrade over Ludwick. Bruce in going uphill, Ludwick downhill.

It isn't bad but I'd need to be blow away to trade Longoria and this doesn't do it for me.

I'm assuming this is for this year, and you wouldn't have to keep Bruce in your 5? Not sure if Bruce would be a keeper next year for you, but he could easily sneak into the top 50 players. That plus Zimmerman, who is almost as good as Longoria, makes the deal worth it. But the question comes down to your valuation of Bruce, and different people have different views on him. I'd do it.


Help me out?

Aren't Zimmerman and Longoria basically the same player at this point? The difference is that the Rays offense should be a little down, and the Nats should be a little better?

This trade seems like a cheap way of seeing where the Bruce express goes this year. You're either going to get a young stud OF, or you downgrade from the best 3B in baseball to the 3rd. I think it's worth the risk.

As a side note, I would think you could get more just from Longoria's name alone, but you know your league better than us.

I like it ... I think Bruce has more upside than Ludwick. If keeper, even more so.

Btw this is my team if it helps. Also this is a 20 team dynasty league, so we keep our whole team every year.

I think you have to do this deal. Bruce is a huge upgrade over
and Zimm all but pushes Longoria in power/rbi/bA and throws in a few extra SB

This looks like a solid deal for you. Longo is better than Zimmerman, but only slightly. Bruce is obviously a huge upgrade over Ludwick.
