Yes, Rollins is integral, as he is searching for SS/2B help.

I would make the trade, I think Adrian is going to start to perform like he should be, and Ackely on WW I would pick him up for sure.


Help me out?

Yeah do it but try and keep Rollins, but if it has to be both still do it and grab Ackley, some decent names on FA, Rollins will get hurt at some point anyway, just a matter of time, thanks or help on mine

Agreed with the other guy. Do the deal and grab Ackley. Not missing too much with that rotation.

Also, chances are Upton and Adrian will heat up around the same time...maybe it's a good thing he's been cold? Get the beef of his stats and do the deal!

I agree, you definitely have to take this deal. Ithink you are getting good value and if A-gon returns to formhe could really help your offense to make the run at first down the stretch. I like Ackley as an addition off the waiver wire, but also take a look at Escobar. He's quietly putting together a decent season and almost has his average up to .300. He could really benefit from a team that I think is going to make a little run and heat up with players like Hosmer, Gordon (both gonna turn it around), and the already performing Butler. Could be a good addition. Also keep an eye on J. Weeks. He had a rough start, but he's starting to hit alot better. If he can get on a role and improve his contact rate making for more base hits, and then convert that to SBs on tbe basepaths, he could have an awesome 2nd half if you're in need of speed. Hope that helps...please take a look at mine below, I need your help!

I would do it despite Agonz not being much of a power player so far this year...he's too good not to come around as the weather heats up and you are stacked on the pitching side of things

Mike Moustakas can enjoy the bench
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

I think I would try to move Verlander instead and go for a truly elite of the elite bat - Braun, Cargo, Votto, MCab.
Greinke isnt that much worse if you look at underlying numbers, but Verlander has such a better reputation that he will return much more relative value.

Gonzo just doesnt look right. His power is really questionable at this point. Of guys in the same tier as AGon I would prefer Stanton, Fielder, Granderson, or Pujols over him if you are are really stuck on trading Greinke.
