I would do the deal as well in a non keeper league. I think you have some nice options on the WW to fill up your bench.

who else is on this guy's roster? i think it might be a bit too much with how many players youre giving up from your bench that have some upside (mainly espinosa and lawrie). its a decent deal though, possibly try to get a bit more over aramis if you can?

help please http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=451338

That's right, there are 2 full months left of baseball. Aramis is good, but he's nothing special, and you give up too much depth, unless the guys on the WW are ridiculous. Without seeing the wire, I would pass on this deal. You can get more sure things than this.


Thanks. Some guys on the wire include

Tori Hunter
Pedro Alvarez
Rickie Weeks
Ben Revere
Kyle Seager
Marco Scutaro
Chris Davis
Justin Ruggiano
Carlos Gomez
Ryan Doumit
Garrett Jones
Cody Ross
Chris Young
Lorenzo Cain
Salvador Perez
Brennan Boesch
Carlos Quentin
Starling Marte

Also, who do you think I can go after with a deal like this? What kind of pitcher should I be looking at?


I like these guys:
Ben Revere
Lorenzo Cain
Salvador Perez
Starling Marte

Aside from the risk of a starter getting injured **knocks on wood**, I like the trade, I think there is enough upside on the wire to help you survive a slump/injury to your starters, plus I'd imagine your trading partner will have to also drop some players, which should help improve the waiver pool

Had to negotiate like crazy with this GM to get him to accept...Updated first post with current roster and remaining schedule...I think I can pull out and get 1st in the east which means first round bye in the playoffs!
