I would take that deal if I were you. Cargo is better than Teixeira. And in my opinion Hosmer, Lewis and Martin won't help you as much as Haren will. Plus you have Carlos Santana at Catcher anyway, that would have been one concern if you didn't have him, but since you do I would say no doubter take the deal.

In a vaccum, i'd say don't make the trade, but because of the depth you have at the positions you're giving up, it definitely makes your team much better. Who else is available on the waiver wire to fill in your roster spots you'll have after the trade?

I'm a relative newbie to fantasy, and only follow the NL, and primarily the NL West, so I can't comment on the AL players you are giving up. What I can tell you is that both Carlos Gonzalez and Dan Haren are absolute studs. I'd grab them.

Whoever I pick up will just be holding the spots until Ike Davis, Cruz and Hamilton come off the DL........but Fuld, Carlos Pena, Moreland, Brantly, Hardy, Byrd are available

I would take the deal. If you have good WW options, you will have a very solid team.
