So who plays 3B for you? Seager? I would say no if that is the case. You don't need more OF help and really SS pretty even just depends on what you want to get out of your SS but the downgrade from Cabrera to Seager is to big for this to make sense for you.

Mike Moustakas is still available on the free agent list. Would you do it if I could pick him up, or still too big of a drop off?

I would not make this move. Miggy is the best player in the deal imo, so I dont like you having to lose him.

I still probably wouldn't. I just don't see what you get out of this. Unless you really need steals and then I might be ok with it but I think Cabrera is the best player in the deal and I don't really think you need to move him.

I think It's pretty fair, but so unnecessary. Further, your opponent is the one receiving the best player in the whole trade. Do not trade, keep Cabrera.

Yeah I'm not really seeing how this trade helps you to a point where it will make the difference between winning and losing the league. With that roster you have to be in the top 3 teams if you're not already in 1st place. Cabrera is clearly the best player in the trade, no doubt, with Braun running a close second...and all those questions about PEDs are out the window at this point. For me this trade is vertually dead even across the board...Where A. Cabrera beats Andrus on power numbers, Andrus comes back and beats A. Cabrera on SBs and Runs. AVG. is pretty even. And Miggy and Braun are almost identical other than steals, where Braun dusts him in SBs. So unless you really needed SBs, and shouldn't with Gordon, Bourn and Pagan, you shouldn't make the trade because again it weakens you at 3B. Moustakas or Seager, doesn't matter, you'd be losing an all day everday best player starter at 3B who you don't ever have to think about sitting or starting. If you made the trade you'f prolly be trying to chasing a filler at 3B for the rest of the year. I know u'd prolly love to have Braun in the OF, who wouldn't...but your best move with that team is to stay put and enjoy what you already have...which is a nasty team that will be tough to beat for the title.

It seems like lateral movement at best. But there doesn't really seem like any big reason to do this.
