Trade my AJax/BJ Upton for Gonzo/ J Fernandez

Postby kc21supra » Mon Apr 22, 2013 9:07 pm

Should i trade Austin Jackson and BJ Upton for Adrian Gonzalez and Jose Fernandez. Its a 5 player keeper yahoo 12 team 5x5 H2h league. I have been killing it in Runs and SBs so far, but HR's and RBI's have been a tough spot for me. I am currently in first but if this trade helps me out, i would like to do it. I have been benching BJ so far this season so the only starter i would be losing is AJAX and getting Gonzo and a young pitcher also. Also will be nice to Granderson back for the power and RBIs as well. FYI, we also only set rosters once per week. Here are my questions

Am i selling to low on upton?
Should i make the trade?
What does this do to my 5 keepers next year?
How does this change my pitching staff? Do i drop someone.

I would keep Jackson and BJ. Wait until Upton gets hot before you trade him. You are giving up too much here.

please help my two posts on the board.

You don't have a ton of OF depth and when and if Upton heats up (he's a 2nd half beast)....I think you are getting a little too little to warrant dealing both OF. I think you'd need a little more proven arm (maybe along the lines of a Latos, Medlen etc) to deal two decent (normally) OF.

Does this change anything if Gonzo is listed as a 1B and OF?

He also has james shields, C. Bucholtz, Cobb, Minor,Cingrani, j Garcia, and J Teheran.

Would any of those be better than J Fernandez? Or should i just reject the trade.
