Benn mulling over some trade options, come across these. I have had some talks with these owners, but nothing certain.

Give: Shields, Holliday, Santan or Chacin
Get: Hanley, Romero

Give: Shields, Chacin
Get: J Upton

Give: Shields, Holliday, Zobrist
Get: Cargo, Gallardo

Give: Shields, A Bat(this owner was hard in on James, needing pitching)
Get: Hosmer, Pedroia

All of these are probably in my favor, but like I've said with the way these guys value pitching, these may gain some traction with some tweaks. Any of these four I should pursue first?

I would pass on this one. While I like Hanley and Romero, I think you are giving up a tad too much here. That and the other trades looks very good.

Give: Shields, Chacin
Get: J Upton


I would make this deal in a heartbeat.

Give: Shields, Holliday, Zobrist
Get: Cargo, Gallardo


This trade is AMAZING, possibly even better than the Upton trade. You aren't getting as much compared to the above trade (in what you are giving versus getting), but this improves 2 of your keepers by a good portion. Gallardo could easily outproduce Shields in 2012. Then you get Cargo for Holliday/Zobrist. You would be losing 2 keepers and 1 non-keeper for two studs. Great deal.

Give: Shields, A Bat(this owner was hard in on James, needing pitching)
Get: Hosmer, Pedroia


This isn't bad either, but the problem is that you need to cut someone to make room for Hosmer. I'm assuming the bat you move is not a keeper, so does Shields + Another Keeper < Dustin + Hosmer? Who would you be dropping? If it is Zobrist or Santana, I still like it.

All look fine to me, where as the Upton deal is a slam dunk for you.

I like all of those deals for you. As was mentioned a few times, jump at the Upton one if you can. ;-D

The Upton deal for sure, except it does leave you a little short pitching wise on your keepers.

Pretty much my only options now are to keep Shields, or the other owner offered Pedroia straight up. That trade would put a kink in my flexibility with having two 3B and two 2B, taking up my util. The league pretty much had a discussion on Shields and killed any value he had left lol. He won't be as good as last year(11 CG? cmon) but he won't be as bad as the year before.

For reference of scoring, Shields scored 922 pts(27.9 ppg) and Pedroia 808 pts(5.1 ppg)

Thoughts on that?
