i can see your trepidation - rasmus is coming on and kipnis can't continue on this pace...but i do really like this deal for you. rasmus has looked good of late but i don't think he has the upside this year that kipnis does, not to mention he's a better keeper. take this one.

could you take a look at mine griff? i am having some serious reservations myself

Huge second base upgrade and you have guys coming off the DL to play OF... I would do this.

Kipnis is the best 2b in the league in a keeper. You HAVE to do this deal QUICK and hope it passes voting! I know Rasmus has some solid numbers but still.

Definitely take this deal. You will upgrade at 2B without losing much at UT. If your concern is Rasmus, I can feel for you (since I have him in my league). He is a frustrating player to own -- very streaky, but lots of potential. It makes it very difficult to let go of him, but the steady production from Kipnis is a must-do.

I would take this deal if it's on the table. I still like the Uggla deal if this doesn't pan out, but I would put this deal ahead of that one.

I would do it also, you can drop Montero also. And another thing I think about is trading Ellsbury RIGHT NOW. With him coming off the DL soon, his value is very high. I don't believe he can come anywhere near last years #'s.
