Agreed with above poster on the W and L side of things, except for Wieters. I have Montero and Wieters in my team and Wieters is just racking up way too many K's too quickly. I'm also a biased Wieters fan, but let's be real here, the guy's still a risk on any team in any league.

He'll eventually breakout, but since he won't be among your keepers there's not really a need to keep a hold of him for this season.

Do the deal.

Thanks for your help. I think you should accept the latest deal. If you don't have Holds as a category then I don't like Rauch because it seems Francisco has already swooped and grabbed one save. Britton if he can keep it is up is a good pitcher. Ichiro gives you consistent hits and some speed. Molina and Wieters is a wash for me like someone else said Wieters is just striking out too much. You also get rid of Peavy who is not getting much run support behind him.

As someone said previously, it's just way too complicated to discern the value on both sides. Too many different factors to consider upside/injury implications/how long people will hold onto their jobs (trumbo/rauch). I would try and narrow the trade down first of all. - A blog for political rants, fantasy sports, and thoughts from my twisted mind. Warning: Not for children.

I like this trade for you. It's close but Abreu pushes it over the top, I think he is the best player in the deal, yea Rauch might not have the job but its not unlikely that Frank Francisco either gets hurt or sucks.
