I get: Brett Lawrie, Bonifacio, & Trumbo

What do you think? Should I do it?

Thanks

Welcome to the Cafe!

I think I would do this trade but it does depend on what your team looks like. Is Trumbo going to replace Konerko at 1B, which I don't like, and who is your 3B now. I still like Lawrie more than Konerko but not if you already have a solid 3B and are going to be stuck with Trumbo as your everyday 1B.

My current 1B is Texeira and my 3B is Aramis Ramirez.

I would be replacing Konerko with Brett Lawrie at one of my DH spots. Then Bonifacio will replace Dustin Ackley at 2B once he gains eligibility.

My second DH spot will be a platoon between Adam Dunn and Trumbo.

Yeah depends where you need the help. Just like this, this looks like a really good trade for you. I think you have two guys i would highlight in a "sell high" article. Konerko always has a great April so he should start coming back to earth soon, and Parra I like, but when he gets cold he might not have a job anymore. You are getting back some great young players that will only get better as the season goes.

Bonifacio in the last 7 days is 4 for 29 with an avg of .139 no rbis no runs no homers and one stolen base and he is 8 for 49 in the last 14 days with an avg of .163

I know Bonifacio is cold lately but I think he can finish the year hitting .280 and 40 steals.

I'm still torn on this trade though.

I currently have him on my team. I just have been putting him on my bench the last few days.
