Yeah, I'd take that trade for sure. Sandoval for Big Papi is an upgrade for you, especially since he's only going to have to play UTIL for your team with Miggy at 3B and Prince at 1B. Gallardo for Oswalt is an even bigger upgrade for you...we have no idea what to expect from Oswalt at this point, but based on his last few season we shouldn't be looking for much. You definitely deal him now instead of Samardzija because Roy's value will never be higher, once he takes that mound it's gonna be like driving a new car off the lot, despreciation baby, lol. Hunter for Revere I see as a slight downgrade for you only because Hunter is always good for .280, 20+HRs, and 80 RBI or so...that's almost a given from him every year. Hunter isn't getting any younger though and Revere is a young guy with gret speed and a better contact rate than Tori...so in that respect I think you win with that part of the deal as well, plus he could turn into a keeper, you never know. Pull the trigger on that one all day evryday. Good luck.

Help with mine please

Bump

Anyone else? Am I getting return enough to justify the deal?
