I'd be more patient with Gallardo than Estrada.

How much of a sell high is Marte? I flipped him for Gio Gonzalez in my NL only league.

Whats the Cafe thoughts on this recent trade I pulled off??

I gave: Clay Bucholz and Luke Gregerson

I get: Jose Bautista and Cole Hamels

The kicker is I'm currently in 1st place, but dead last in saves and near the bottom in home runs.

Sell Ryan Zimmerman in a keeper? I doesn't look like he is going to stay at 3B and at 1B I think he loses a lot of value long term.

I'd take either one of Bautista or Hamels alone for those other two...you got them both.

Good giggly-wiggley, you fleeced that guy. Gregerson most likely won't even be closing for more than a few weeks.

Those of you with Dom Brown who are selling on him, what are you looking to get? I'm trying to gauge what people think his value would be...

I'd take a shot at Bryce Harper... see if the Harper owner is getting nervous enough to make a panic sale.

Assuming that probably won't happen, I'd look for something around the Choo, Rios, Craig, Zobrist, Austin Jackson level. Anything better than that would be a nice bonus.
