value wise I think getting Longoria for Lee would be good.
losing Lee will leave you a rotation of- Hamels, Scherzer, Kuroda, Chacin, De La Rosa, Zimmerman
could it be an option to use Lee in a trade for 2 players that help instead of 1 elite player?
or maybe you could even take Longoria, and then because 3B is so thin because of injuries you could flip Longoria(or Wright) for help in multiple other areas?

help?

I definitely agree with the other guy. Value wise it's a good deal, but I don't think the loss of Lee is worth it when you already have Wright.

You lose your Ace, but I can't see how you can pass up Longoria.

I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but I think Longo is vastly overrated (and that was before the injury issues), and as a separate matter I like Lee a lot, so I definitely would not do it. Also, thanks for help on mine.

This is the instance where too much of a good thing can hurt your team. While Longoria for Lee is a good move in most leagues by having Wright you already have 3B locked up. Unless you have another deal in place to upgrade 1B with Pujols, MIggy or Votto then don't do this deal. None of the other spots are worth upgrading and the hit to your pitching staff would be too much to take.

Thanks for your input on my thread.

Yeah, I don't really see the need for this trade. It'd be different if you didn't have wright. Although it is a keeper league (and I don't have experience with keepers) but perhaps that changes the value here? Does being able to keep longoria outweigh keeping lee?

With David Wright on your roster I don't see a need to add longoria and I also agree that Lee will be a significant loss to your roster. I would not do this deal.

Honestly, im gonna make this short and sweet. IDC if this is keeper or redraft, and i honestly dont care about ur roster. I think this deal is so in ur favor in terms of value i think you DO THIS deal and dont look back ;-D Worry about filling position needs and building ur staff later, this early on in the season take the value and work from there! DO THIS DEAL NOW!

PLEASE HELP WITH MINE
