I like this trade. I am not a fan of either Wandy or Longoria. Also, it seems like A-Rod is going to have a big year for the Yanks.

Hanson is an upgrade over Rodriguez while Longoria & A-Rod are pretty close at 3rd. If Longoria was only in the 1st year of his contract I'd say don't do it but since he's in his final year I'd pull the trigger on this one. It helps you both short and mid term.

No doubter. Hanson's a huge upgrade and A-Rod and Longoria are comparable. Do it.

Do I need to worry about any Veto birds on this one?

We have it set so that Yahoo! office reviews trades that come under protest. Even with keeper element though, I am giving away the "best" player in the deal (Longoria). So I am in the clear, right?

I'd do it. Keeping Hanson for 3 yrs is worth it. AROD for 3 more may not be, but , like you said, u can only keep Longoria for this year.

Don't think you'll have a problem getting it through, on paper it looks even, the keeper element pushes it in your favor though.

Fair deal so I don't see how they can veto this since Longo is the best player in the deal.

I would do it. The difference between Hanson to Wandy is greater then the distance between Longo to ARod. Your SP's will be great.

That makes it a lot tougher of a decision. It is almost a wash now. I guess it is just a matter of personal preference with you. Although I do think A-Rod might be primed for somewhat of a bounce back year by his standards.
