I don't think either get a better deal on paper. Perhaps Team B because they're getting two players instead of one.

The team getting Pedroia wins easily.

Love Bumgarner, but he's not in the elite SP tier quite yet, and Rodney is a middle of the road closer.

Pedroia is a 1st/early 2nd round talent... at a thin position.

Agreed. Could change depending on league size but almost always the team getting the best player wins. Who knows, maybe there is still RP available so it ends up being Pedroia and Robertson which then easily favors Pedroia.

The side getting Pedroia. Elite talent at a weak position is fantasy gold.

As the others said, Pedroia's side wins easily.

Yeah, doing a little more research, despite a lousy 2010 with an injury (if I recall) Pedroia still beats the other two out with 20/20/.290+ capabilities. Still like Bumgarner, but the Giants are hurting for batters these days so wins may be tough. Rodney is fine for now but he could stay or go based on if he melts down or not like he did for the Angels. I'm convinced, team A wins.

Pedroia side. You can't get players like him. Like Bum, but pitchers are easier to replace

Please help

I am with everyone else, there are 2-3 elite 2nd basemen, and Pedroia is one of them. I wouldn't move him for those guys especially for closers in this day and age. Bumgarner is solid, but as others said may not be worthy of elite status......YET
