No, that's a horrible deal to be honest. Vlady is worth so much more... I would think Soto and Jones might be on mark with what it might take for one to get Vlady. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. You lost this one. Soto for Jones straight up would have been close and maybe it would have taken you a little more to get Soto than just Jones, but not Vlady.

We start 2 catchers, FYI.

I had an abundance of good OF`s and was weak at catcher, so overall I improved my team...might have lost the trade.

Well, that does make a little more sense. Catchers who put up good numbers and consistently play is hard to come by... has to be difficult to find 2 players to fill those positions.

For your format, this is a great deal!

Guerrero was a f/a for the longest time in my league (H2H, 12 team non-keeper, daily change, everything counts except WHIP, AVG, and ERA). To grab a starting catcher that will actually play catcher isn't a bad thing.

I'm sure there are plenty of replacements for Vlad, who is a DH.
