My Team:
Arencibia
M. Cabrera / G. Sanchez
Prado / Raburn
Tulowitzki /
R Zimmerman / McGehee
Pence / J Upton / Rasmus / Pagan

Hanson / Cain / Bumgarner / D Hudson / C Zambrano / Garza / Rauch / Storen / Bedard/ Strasburg DL


Thanks!! Leave a link.

I would def do this trade. Your SPS are weak towards the back end, and you are getting a first rd STUD SP. Im not too familiar with H2H but from what I understand SP is more valuable than hitting, so this seems like a very good trade for you.

Thanks for your help on my Braun/Timmy trade BTW.

I definetly like this move for you. #1 overall SP for the #10ish OF? I think this solidifies your rotation big time, and you still have some big bats in your lineup.

I would do this move. Halladay is a super stud in any fantasy baseball format. He went 1st in our draft, before Pujols for the 3rd year in a row and 2 out of those 3 years the guy who took him won the league. Upton is not in the elite level like Halladay.

Thanks for looking at mine and helping me.

I absolutely do this trade. Halladay is a better player than Upton. Plain and simple. Plus you have Raburn, who is 2b/ OF elig. in most yahoo leagues, so it wont leave you too thin at the OF position either.

If he's willing to move Halladay for someone like Upton, it could even be worth looking to see what exactly he wants from the trade: get a feel for what it is about Upton that he wants, and maybe you could even offer other players in the same skill set (like Pence) and see if you can upgrade with him too.

Or just take the trade and run with it - it's a steal, and you don't want to push your luck with trying to get too much. Definitely accept the trade and run with it! The value's there for sure.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=424807, thanks!
