I agree with some of the above in that you can probably get a bit more for Stras. The deal itself does help your team but if you can do better why not? Again as another mentioned, if nothing better comes along then this deal will certainly help your team.

Help with mine please? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=463873

Thanks all for the replies. Two reasons I am having trouble getting more- 1- not a lot of teams are sellers right now since the rest of standing are close and 2- this is an auction league with a salary cap and I don't have a lot of cap room for large salaries.

But does the trade look better if also get Brandon Phillips for my Martin Prado? So the full trade would be:

I get- Trumbo, E Sanatana, A Sanchez, B Phillips
I give- Aoki, Strasburg, Medlan, M Prado

If the option is to win this season and Trumbo/Phillips gives you a better chance than an unkeepable Strasburg who hasn't had a win in a month - pull the trigger and don't concern yourself with better non existent trade possibilities. ;-D

Agreed if you can squeeze Phillips and Trumbo out of this deal do it.
