Even if your league is a redraft, that's a great deal for you. Both players you get are better than the players you're giving up.

I should do both trades? I know the first one is a No brainer. Im more interested in the pedroia marcum for greinke? Im worried I'm giving up too much.

assuming this is a re-draft, why not look to move Strasberg? Washington already said he will be shut down around 160 innings...

if thats the case, and this is a re-draft league maybe do Pedroia and Strasberg for Kershaw.

Strasberg is not on my roster. He is on manager 1's roster.

Yes you do both trades, you get the two best players out of all the ones mentioned.

Yes trade for Trout and Marcum and package Marcum with Pedroia for Greinke, no doubt. Put Kipnis at 2nd, let some other owner worry about Pedroia and his thumb
