I think this falls into the "click accept before the owner who offered you this trade comes down from his LSD-induced haze where the two-headed alien clone of Elvis told him to pick up his brother, Elvis Andrus, for his fantasy team at all cost" category.

^^^ HA!

Quickly accept this one. With TB being a category, you win big time. Pitchers are very volatile and the difference between Cain and Halladay is far closer than the difference between Elvis and Hanley. DO it ;-D

I don't think it is as lopsided as the previous posters but I do think it is a good trade picking up Hanley. Pitching is volatile, but not when you are talking about Halladay...

A little help please? viewtopic.php?t=424685

I'd make this deal as well. The only "loss" I see in this deal is the downgrade of Bell to Axford, but the other parts more than make up for it.

This guy has Papelbon, Soria, and K Rod already at RP and is giving me Axford (his 4th RP, Idk why he has 4 but if they are that good, why not) Should I try and get Papelbon or K Rod out of him instead of Axford? Or is Axford gonna produce this year?And I'm just assuming Soria is off limits.

I am not sure I would quibble over the RP. Any three of those guys could have the best year and any three could be on DL by mid season.

But I love this deal for you no matter which RP you get.

I just fear that I'd really suffer in saves if I do this, I want to somehow convince him to take Kimbrel instead of Bell, but that most likely won't happen.

Do not try and convince him of anything. Go click accept. Now.

If you want more help, consider that Bell may be traded by the AS break and possibly put in the set-up role. Any closer may get hurt (Francisco's already hurt, Bailey too) and their hold on the job is not certain (Storen was considered the closer, but now he might be headed back to the minors).

Accept this trade and stay vigilant on the WW to nab any possible closers (like Rauch, League, Clippard, Gutierrez, etc...)
