Quick question: Are you rebuilding or chasing a title this year? And how many keepers?

If dynasty league (keep entire roster), give me Wright and Ramirez.
If going for it this year, give me Votto.
If keeper league (keep 2-5 players), give me Votto.

Chasing a title and we keep 8 players, but we may move to 10 keepers next season. Thank you for the fast reply.

Well, you get to slide Encarnacion into the 1B slot (not a ridiculous downgrade from Votto...actually provides more power numbers, but not as good of a BA), and Wright provides a TREMENDOUS upgrade over Pedro Alvarez. And Hanley provides an upgrade over Segura if SS eligible, and over Revere/De Aza for UTL spot, if he does not have SS eligibility.

I like the idea of this trade, even as a keeper league.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

It's a strong offer, but I'm staying with Votto.

I think this deal gives you a better overall balanced roster pull the trigger.
