I say no.

Fielder's keeper value alone makes this deal a no for me.

I agree,not enough in return for Fielder. You can afford to trade him
but this isn't the right deal.

I might consider that. Hate to be the one giving up the best player, but Morales isn't a bad replacement and Sandoval and Trout especially have "dynasty gem" written all over them.

I'd still probably decline, though. Maybe take the offer to a team with a weak 1B and say, "can you beat this offer?"

I would stay put, Fielder is the best player and he isn't on the decline. He still has several monster years in him

Yep, keep what you got. Fielder is worth more than that considering his keeper value, and he is already the best player in the deal without that fact added in.

Take a look at mine.....http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=424317

I like the idea of you trading Fielder...your team is solid enough to move him and I think he is someone that may get you good value from another team in the league -- but this deal doesnt give you enough in return. IMHO this isnt a good deal for you.


Please help in return: viewtopic.php?t=424326
