Team A is getting the 2 best players in that deal. Greinke and Longoria? Yes, please.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

This trade is not close. Longoria/Greinke wins out easily.

I would be team A, and as the commish of this league, I don't want to be setting a standard for unfair trades. However, this guy I'm trading Andrus to is a homer when it comes to Rangers players, and if he could have it his way, he'd own every Ranger on his team. So I'm definitly trying to take advantage of this.

Doesn't your league have the ability to veto? The purpose of the veto is so the LM doesn't have to worry about every deal he makes.

You may rub some people the wrong way with this kind of trade.

You're getting 2 top fantasy 50 fantasy players and only giving up 1 (and that is debatable). In addition, the other player you're getting is almost serviceable as a MI on most rosters, in most leagues.

The other two players you're giving up aren't even worth rostering in a 10 team league. You'll probably get a ton of complaints. Maybe drop either Longoria or Greinke from the trade so it doesn't look at ludicrous. And then axe Wells from that deal.

Make it Desmond/Greinke for Andrus/E. Jackson. That way it looks like a simultaneous upgrade for each team. You--pitcher, and other guy--shortshop.

This is such a lopsided deal it hurts. I'm not even sure Andrus, Jackson and Wells are worth Longoria alone. Throwing Greinke in there during a contract year is just absurd. You need to look past this and move on in fairness to the league.

Completely agree. Desmond and Wells aren't roster-worthy in a 10-teamer. Possibly Jackson as well.
