ESPN league, quasi dynasty... 16 keepers allowed

Trade Offered to me:

I give up:
Pujols
Josh Hamilton

I get:
Granderson

Would you do that trade? This guy also has Prince Fielder, what would a fair counter offer to make sure Fielder would be in the deal..

His Team:

C - Wilson Ramos

Interesting. Depends. Hamilton and Pedroia are about a push. Both tend to get hurt some.

Wright, Granderson and Gordon for Pujols I suppose is on paper pretty decent. The problem is Wright is suspect (gets hurt too much, plays in Citi Field, plays for a bad team...may or may not be dealt), not a fan of Gordon and Granderson I have lingering doubts about his ability to hit lefties and if his numbers will fall back some as a result. Granderson also may or may not be back with the Yanks when his contract is up. The Yanks want to stay under the 189 million cap to avoid the tax and they have both Cano and Granderson to deal with in the next couple of years. I can't see them easily keeping both at market value as they already have big bucks tied up in ARod, Jeter, Tex, and Sabathia. Maybe.

Pujols on the other hand is Pujols.

I suppose it comes down to what your comfort level is with Wright and Granderson. If you believe in both then this is a good deal and Gordon ends up being a bonus.

Personally I think I would do that deal in a heartbeat!

You are getting some very solid players for what your giving up
