Love Hosmer so I don't think it's too bad a drop. I like this deal for you.

You get a solid pitcher in Marcum and you buy low on Gordon. Ham-Ram slides right into your lineup and you've got a solid team. Take it.

The one reservation I have is going forward you'd have two 3B keepers. I think Fielder puts up better numbers over the next 3-4 years than Hanley does so if one or the other is going to occupy my Util spot I'd prefer it be Fielder.

That said, IMO it's a slight downgrade in the future versus an upgrade for your current team for this year. I'd probably end up doing that deal, though I might email the guy with an "I don't know" line and discuss the fact that you'd end up with two 3B keepers and you think it does hurt you a bit long-term to see if he'd be willing to toss in a bit more value to make the deal get done. Maybe a slight upgrade at lower-tier pitchers, etc. Just a small little extra cherry on top. Again I'd do this with an email and feel him out instead of canceling/countering the trade. That way if he stands his ground and refuses to budge you could always "reluctantly" decide to accept the trade on the floor.


any thoughts on mine? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=445147

Thanks and I responded to your thread. I will either have two 1B Keepers (Hosmer, Fielder) or 2 3B Keepers (Zimmerman, Hanley). But who thinks Reyes will stay healthy all year anyway? :)

Based on the replies and my own considerations, I have accepted the trade but now one or more managers want to veto it?

Even if you include the so called O-Ranks, I don't see how this trade is veto-worthy.

I get:
Hanley Ramirez O-Rank 21
Alex Gordon O-Rank 66
Shaun Marcum O-Rank 137

I give:
Prince Fielder O-Rank 14
Brett Gardner DL O-Rank 109
Kendrys Morales O-Rank 167
Fernando Rodney O-Rank 433

Who says that Ramriez plays SS if Reyes is out hurt? Teams generally don't move their stars from position to position. That's where someone like Bonifacio becomes so valuable to the Marlins. Let's call Hanley for Fielder a wash. Looking at the rest of the deal I kind of prefer Gordon/Marcum to what you're giving up. Rodney is irrelevant, IMO. I prefer Gordon to Gardner, especially since the Yankees seem to not know how to use him. Marcum for Morales is fair.

It's a pretty even offer. I wouldn't fault you for picking either side. If you accept, you do get a little younger.
