Thanks for the input on the Rasmus/Johnson trade. I may have overpaid but it will be interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out.

I also should mention my depth at OF when I accept the Broxton/Rasmus for JJ trade. I already had Austin Jackson, Heyward, Adam Jones, De Aza and Gardner (DL) for my 3 OF slots.

Turned down Dickey for Trout yesterday in my keeper. Easy to turn down in a keeper.

GREAT trade. Reyes is a terrific buy right now and would give you a boost if you needed to gain a few in SB's. He'll probably go on a tear at the plate as well, I can not see him hitting .269 all year. I also think Kennedy and McDonald are very close in value.

This is what I'm hoping for as well. It's a H2H League so I'm hoping Kennedy benefits from facing the NL West down the stretch during my playoffs; and while McDonald has been beastly thus far, I'm not willing to count on it keeping up for another 3 months. Knowing my luck, though, Reyes' hammy will flare up tomorrow. :-X

That's basically insulting, need to start with your best player in a Trout offer and work from there.

Was offered Hamilton/CLee for Trout/Kipnis in a full keeper, but turned it down.
