I'm thinking you probably wouldn't be keeping any of the players you're sending off. Gonzalez would definitely be a keeper. I see him as a top 5 player. I would do this deal.

If playing to win this year, I think I would keep Felix to balance out your team more. I love AGon, but with Fielder at 1B, it's not a position you really need to address. I'm not sure I'd be dealing Hosmer either. He's done so well since his callup, I'm not sure I'd be dealing him in a keeper league.

Playing to win this year, but we only keep 6 so I doubt I keep Hosmer over other candidates. Also, we play 3 utility so I'd put Adrian at one of the utility spots.

Thoughts?

Thanks for your help on mine. Basically this is a top-10 pitcher, + a struggling pitcher, + some potential, for a top-10 overall player going forward. I'll trade a top-10 pitcher for a top-10 batter in almost every case.

I actually just traded Adrian Gonzalez to get Felix Hernandez and jacoby ellsbury... Risky but I needed another sp and a better outfielder. Looking at your team I wouldn't do it even though I love Adrian. Sizemore willget hurt again and you already have prince, plus u obviously lose in the Felix/dempster part. I also think homer is going to be solid all year. Tough call though considering Adrian is on such a tear right now.

Thanks for the help with mine.


With the team you have, I honestly would do this trade. It looks like your offense could use the help over your pitching so AGon would be a huge get for you, he is one of the best in fantasy right now. And you have 3 utility spots so you will always be able to start him. If you dont need any more offense then definitely back out of the trade, but just by looking at your roster I feel like your pitching can still compete with out Felix and your offense could use an upgrade.

Yeah, if you don't get rewarded for keeping a late draft pick or FA, then I would do this deal. Simply because your getting the most valuable player in A-Gon. If you could keep Hosmer as a late round pick for next year, I'd stand pat.
