I'm being offered Bell and Bourn for McCann, Chacin, and Venters and I'm feeling that I'm paying a bit too much, although currently I have outstanding ERA and WHIP and need help in runs, average, saves and steals (especially steals, where I'm a very distant last place, maybe 20 behind next-to-last). This is a ten-team, NL-only 5x5 roto league, by the way. Am I correct in assuming that the deal is too lopsided against me, and, if so, is it too lopsided in my favor if I ask for Reyes instead of Bourn? If so, what would be a better trade (he's looking for HR, avg, wins, and K's). Concerns I have are that Bell could get traded to the AL and that Venters could end up being the full-time closer for the Braves (although this may not be likely), and that dropping from McCann to Wilson Ramos as my catcher would be a huge loss in production and I'm in the middle of the pack in HRs and average.
My roster: C - McCann 1B - P. Fielder 2B - D. Descalso 3B - Chris Johnson SS - R. Theriot CI - Chipper Jones MI - S. Schumaker OF - Corey Hart, Aubrey Huff, Garrett Jones, Allen Craig (DL) Util - W. Ramos BN - Freddy Sanchez (for now), Martin Prado (DL) Actual DL - David Freese SP - Kyle Lohse, P. Maholm, RA Dickey RP - J. Venters, J. Axford P - C. Carpenter, Chacin, C. Narveson BN - T. Wood DL - Josh Johnson
His lineup: C - J. Buck 1B - Carlos Lee 2B - Kelly Johnson 3B - C. Headley SS - J Reyes CI - Scott Rolen MI - M Tejada OF - H Pence, R Ibanez, A Torres, M Holliday (DL) Util - M Bourn SP - Oswalt, Hamels, Lilly RP - Bell, F. Salas P - Jimenez, Stauffer, Eduardo Sanchez BN - Brandon Lyon, Javier Vazquez, Ryan Franklin DL - v. Padilla
What if I don't give up Venters, too? That is, McCann + Chacin for Bourn + Bell? (Alternatively, would it be better for me to do McCann + Venters and keep Chacin instead? I think he's more interested in solid SP though)
