Just got offered a big trade in 12 team h2h redraft weekly points league that favors power bats:

I give:
Trout
Freeman

I get:
M.Cabrera
A.Ethier
Lance Lynn

I am in 1st place in points, but may have lost Lawrie for awhile at 3b with no back up (Chipper on ww). Trout has been on fire and Freeman is having a good year, so this isn’t an easy decision. Ethier and Cespedes are the other team’s best OFers after Stanton went down. Other team has Josh Johnson and Gio as other good SPs.

My team:
C: J.Montero
1: Konerko
2: Kinsler
SS: Jeter
3: Lawrie (dtd)
IF: Rizzo
OF: Braun (dtd)
OF: McCutchen
OF: Trout
UT: Swisher
B: Freeman, D.Jennings

SP (start 4): Gallardo,Latos,A.Sanchez,Kuroda
RP (start 2): Chapman,Valverde
B: Masterson, Sheets, Buchholz,Aceves
IR: Gardner, Pettitte

Should I accept this trade or try to counter for a better pitcher than Lance Lynn? If accept, drop Buchholz or Sheets to make roster room?

MCab is one of the few guys I'd still rather have ROS than Trout, and I think I like Ethier as much or more than Freeman - Lynn might not do much for you, but he's usable I suppose. That said, I think this is the ABSOLUTE least you should take in this deal. People are getting crazy hauls for Trout and I think you should take this opportunity to try and extort the other owner for more than this, most notably in the form of a slightly better bat than Ethier and/or a better SP than Lynn for ROS. If you absolutely can't get less than this will be your baseline, but push the limits first ;-D

I would counter for a better SP. As far as the last part, Sheets had a good outing, but I am a little leery since he hasn't pitched since 2010. He may be worth keeping, but with such a small sample size it's hard to tell.

Great hitting return, but counter for a pitcher that stands to have a great second half (not sure that's Lynn).
