CHECK OUT THIS SUPERSTAR FILLED DEAL. WHO WINS? * WHIR *

Things have changed a bit look a little lower. Big deals get harder to see edge, so I'd love your input.

As it stands right now I'd want B. If Utley's knee gets worse then A wins.

Mig Cabrera, Pedroia, Braun, Johan Santana, and Verlander

TEAM B GETS:
Pujols, Utley, Pence, Kid Weaver, and Sabathia

Pujols vs Miggy Cab = push, maybe a slight edge to Pujols
Pedroia = Utley risk, reward, Pedroia is a safer option and Utley is the penultimate risk/reward 2b this year. I say that is a push.
Braun>Pence (though Pence is consistent, you know what your going to get, and won't be a huge downgrade from Braun Braun only outflanks him in RBI)
Verlander and Sabathia cancel each other out - that is about as much of a push as it gets.
Jared Weaver > Santana - Not only would I take Jared Weaver over Santana, Johan is hurt and playing for an aging rebuilding team. Advantage easily Jared.

team B's players have the least risk involved for this year and would take the Pujols, Utley, Pence, Weaver and CC side by a slight margin.

These are sick deals.... I will admit.... I now have another....
14 Team League. Head to Head. In our 9th year. 11 Keepers.
Contracts are 3 years only.
With Buddies Since Tee Ball. Competitive $$$
Contracts Renew When Traded/Drafted
(year) Contract Expires
Compete in following 6x6 areas:
OBP H HR RBI R SB
WHIP IP ERA SO W SV


WHAT DEAL DO YOU LIKE? HATE? PREFER?
I am working heard to deal Braun and McCab separately, but not a lot of luck. I have to move them due to expiring contracts of I lise to draft. Others know I am in this position. I have to have deals down by this weekend.

DEAL A:
I GIVE: Mig Cabrera, Pedroia, Braun, Johan Santana, and Verlander
I GET: Pujols, Utley, Pence, Kid Weaver, and Sabathia


DEAL B:
I GIVE: Mig Cabera, Braun, and any two to my liking
I GET: CarGo, VMart, YoGa, and one of Dunn, N, Cruz, or Morneau... I get a min five round upgrade here too. Now 4th for 9th
* I hate giving up best two, but still a nice package.

I'd agree with this assessment of the deal. Really the only part of the deal that sucks is giving up Braun and getting Pence, but the rest is either a wash/bit better or Weaver destroying an injured/rehabbing Santana.

As for the 2nd deal, I don't know about it. If you can give two junk players it would definitely be worth it, but I assume there are certain players you have to choose the two from. I'm not totally crazy about YoGa and any of the three to choose from could provide the difference in any lost offense.

I think if I had to do one I'd lean towards the first if only because you know what you'd be getting. That's not to say the 2nd isn't good.

I would do deal number 2 unless you have to give up two superstars to go along with Miggy and Braun. But, I love CarGo and think he outproduces Braun this year, Gallardo going to be a nice addition and I would actually take Dunn in that deal. You know what you are getting with him and he is soooo underrated in my opinion. I mean what....5 or 6 seasons in a row of 38-40 HR wherever he plays? He is a stud and a much better play than Cruz and Morneau(who always gets hurt) in my opinion.

thanks for your help with mine
