12 team H2H Non-keeper, R,RBI, HR, SB, OBP, SLUG categories.

My team:

1B Carlos Pena
(TB - 1B) 3 2 7 0 .571 1.083

BN Ryan Howard
(Phi - 1B) DL - - - - - -
DL Michael Morse
(Was - 1B,OF) DL


As you can see I have a lot of power...Longoria, TT, Duda, Hamilton, etc.

I picked up Coco Crisp as a free agent. I'm a little worried about COCO. I never liked him as a player, just for his one trick pony of SBs. Right now I'm conceding SBs practically to win the other hitting categories. Thinking of trading Morse for Bourn or another speedster.

I don't think just one guy is going to put you over the top. I'd stay put.

I like the move. Bourn should have a nice SB+R combo. Add that with Crisp and your team is much more balanced.

Have you been offered this deal or are you offering it. I think of Bourn higher than Morse and would take that deal pretty easily. But if you are offering it, I am not sure Morse will be enough.

I prefer Morse, plus with OBA and SLUGGING, Bourn loses some value.

Love Bourn but you could go into FA and snag a Berry/Davis type
