I would rather have Price. i don't think Berkman keeps this pace up all year.

Agreed. I think your outfield will be okay once Heyward returns anyways.

This is a great trade for you, selling high on Berkman. I just don't see him maintaining his top-25 overall pace. From here on out, I'd bet on him beting a top-100 player, who I'd happily trade for a top-15 pitcher.

I was thinking Berkman can't keep up these #'s too (he has been slumping the past week too). The guy who proposed the trade also has Kemp, Longoria and Cruz. I doubt he would do Price for Kemp, but what about the other two, any advice there?

Looking at your SPs, you are pretty deep, while not as deep on offense. If I were you I'd do Price for any one of those three, in this order:

Kemp
Longoria
Cruz

I doubt he trades Kemp, but I could imagine him popping with Longoria or Cruz, depending on their pitching situation. If he doesn't have a SP need, I highly doubt he goes for it though.

If you could get Longoria for Price you do it!

He's got Greinke, Shields, Jurrjens and Chacin, this guy's also 2nd in our league, while I've been floating around 8th-10th all year.

EDIT: I would definitely trade Price for Longoria, Kemp or Cruz. Not sure if he's gonna go with it tho.
