I think you do this trade. Even though it's tough to let Tulowitzki go, you are getting Cabrera. I like Victorino over both Kubel and Ludwick, and Jurrjens and Carpenter over McClellan and Gio.

I see a couple of things going on with your team. Victor Martinez is due back Wednesday, and assuming he's 1B eligible in your league, you can make him your corner infielder. Morrison will be back in a couple of weeks, so that will solidify your OF better. The big question: who will be your SS? Will you have a large dropoff from Tulo?

I'm not sure I'd do this trade. Yes, Miggy is great, but 1B depth is much greater than SS. I have Tulo also, and I'd be very, very careful before I'd trade him. He's pretty much alone at the SS position right now, with HRam down so far this year.

I can't really explain it but I think I feel more comfortable with Miggy over Tulo. Also, I think the rest of the trade is great for me. Am I right?
Thanks!
