I make this trade on two conditions: First, that you can stand to take a hit on average (Lawrie and Hamilton are probably not going to have excellent averages this year). Also, that you have someone to replace Castro (someone other than Gordon on the wire). Middlebrooks is really struggling and until his discipline improves, he will continue to struggle. Getting rid of him is recommended.

Good Luck.

I like this trade. YOu are getting the best player in Hamilton. Lawrie has been streaky, but will be solid.
Losing Castro will hurt. But Hellickson and Middlebrooks are only borderline worth owning.

Getting the best player between Hamilton and Castro is actually debatable, but you still get the better end because Lawrie has good value while MiddleB and Hellboy aren't much better than most guys on the waiver wire. I'd make the move.
