Bump

Please lemme know your thoughts. He's notorious for pulling deals off the table rapidly.

I think it's a bit of a gamble but I like it. Lohse is performing well and Pineda(although he's on SEA) is performing very good but I would expect his numbers to drop a bit just playing for SEA.

I think it's good deal though especially in a keeper league. Crisp and Prince are good pick ups.

I'd say go for it.

I say pull the trigger. Prince in a K year is going to be huge. You're giving up a decent bit, but I think it will be worth it.

Am I the only one that thinks this is kind of a rip off? Definitely do this deal if you can.

Damn! You're getting Prince in a contract year in a keeper league? I like this trade!

Prince> Desmond and Granderson
Pineda & Lohse > Danks and Wandy, but not by much
You get Crisp for "free", so you make up with the SB category

Sell Granderson high, but know what you're getting in return: solid pitching, hitting and covering all facets of the game. :-)

Trade accepted. Don't have to worry about vetoers, do I?

Doubt it.

I think Fielder will have a great year, but it's not all that lopsided. :-)
