I wouldn't do this, but it's all about risk here. Cespedes and Moore will likely be more reliable than BJ Upton and Medlen, but I like the upside of Upton and Medlen better. Kinsler can be aggravating to own, but he can light really help you with runs and could do decent in HRs and SBs. Again, Zorbist would be more reliable, but I'd take Kinsler. The rest is kind of a wash, but I think Middlebrooks could have a decent year.

This will come down to the rest of your roster. If you've got some sure-thing guys like Fielder, Votto, Miggy or Braun, then I would reject this and go for the upside of the guys you already have. But if your roster doesn't have much consistency on it, then this might be a good move for you.

Help with mine?

You're giving up too much

thanks for the feedback, I like Cespedes and especially Moore, but I was afraid I was giving up too much.

This isnt a good trade especially in a dynasty.

I like Cespedes the most of anyone in the deal, but giving up Boegarts is the dealbreaker for me.
