Thats just to big of a deal. I would look at it this way how many of them would be keeping for next year. You upgrade at 3rd, and Pitching. But I only really see two of those guys you would keep over tha rest of the players on your team.

how many of these guys would you keep? Edwin Encarnacion(k), Hanley Ramirez(k), Zack Greinke, Jim Johnson, Addison Reed, Tom Wilhelmsen(k), James Shields (k Maybe) and Daniel Straily(k)

It makes your team better but in the long run im not sure.

It's a classic win now dump trade deal. Yeah it sucks to lose a stud keeper like Cutch, but this trade is all about you being champion in 2012. Are dump trades common in your league? If they aren't, expect some serious griping from the other contenders if you take this.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

I'm not worried about who I'm keeping. I was already Keeping Posey, Bautista, Harper, Moore and then decide on Encarnacion, Hanley and Greinke.What worried me is that guys like Greinke and Hanley will continue to struggle. If I take this offer will It make my team better. The guys offering the trade also has Heyward and Justin Upton ( Whom he refuses to trade) . He has Soriano, Ichiro and Hosmer.

I dont like it that much, you would have to drop 7 players right?

With what you'd have to drop or bench I'm not sure if its worth it. It seems like hes willing to give up a lot, I'd see what else you can get in just a 2 for 1 deal or something
