hanson will be a top of the line starter for many years adn has potential to become elite.
can you help me out?

Second: I think you should do that trade. Cruz, if he manages to stay healthy, will be a top 5 player (not just OF) this year... I had him last year and just LOVED him when he was playing. Plus, Hanson will only continue to get better, and even though your starting pitching is awesome, you would benefit from a young guy like him. Even though Braun's consistency is awesome (he still had a 25-100-100-15-.300 season in a down year last year, if I remember correctly), you have plenty of young talent at OF (Bryce Harper. 'Nuff said.)
Third: I've never played in a dynasty league, but trading away A-Rod to a Yankees fan could probably bring in some great young talent (Pedro Alvarez, perhaps?) if you can afford to lose him and still win the league. Also, Mauer may fetch more than he's worth, considering the fact that he may not be able to hit homers in that new ball park they have...
Fourth: I alluded to this earlier, but great prospects! Walker, Harper, and Hosmer are going to be studs.
Fifth: Are there teams that hate this league because they may have fallen into the doldrums after one bad draft/a few years of bad trades? I really want to start up a dynasty league but don't know if it will cause a lot of league turnover as far as owners are concerned.
This reply was very scatterbrained but I feel like most of it contributed to the topic... lol
Please help as soon as you can, the offer is on the table with this guy!

i DO expect him to hit more HR than last yr, but not more than 30, and i also dont think he will ever hit 20sb again.
his ISO (power) has dropped every single year since his rookie season (.310 .268 .231 .197) and his K% has also dropped.
while a decreasing K% looks nice, in conjunction with his ISO trend its a sign that hes becoming a different kind of hitter.
more of a contact/gap hitter than a pure power guy like he was his first 2 years.
hes trending to be more like hunter pence than matt holliday
anyone want to help me analyze this draft:
