Not sure if I should have done this! Dang

I just gave up Wainwright for Heath Bell and Doug Fister?

10 team 5x5 Im pretty stacked in SP so I thought I could afford to deal Wainwright. Did I mess up?

Hard to say right now but if Wainwright gets back to being Wainwright you lost. Looks like a decent gamble to me though, Fister is solid and on a good team, and Bell could really rack up a lot of saves this year. You can always trade a closer for a SP later if you need to.

Not a trade I would have done but it could turn out just fine.

I'm not sure it's a serious f'up, but I would have kept Wainwright.

Since you were "pretty stacked" in SP it seems weird you didn't target a better RP in the deal for wainright. You got an okay RP and an okay SP. However, if Fister puts up numbers anything like last year then you will have no problems.
