Thanks for the response on my question...

I'm not blown away by either side. I think it certainly improves your two C spots which you're hurting in from a counting stat perspective. Eovaldi and Minor you might as well flip a coin on who will perform better ROS. Giambi is no big loss, but it does weaken the 1B slot. All-in-all it seems like a pretty lateral move.

I'm assuming there's no options in the waiver for 1B/OF...because all in all this trade seems like a wash. Depending how things would look on your roster after (which right now looks like you might have a hole in the OF?) I might decide not to do it and just ride out the guys you have. The deal certainly improves the catching spot, though it doesn't really wow me...

Yeah, I'd sit tight on this one. Not sure how much of an improvement this deal really makes for you. I actually like Minor over Eovaldi.

I'd stay put but I am not in a deep enough league to really give you a good opinion on this one, I feel like all these players are pretty bad. Go with whichever side has a decent keeper option?

I would take it... it will help your catcher spots and Eovaldi is good.
