I would do this trade. Colby has had a disappointing year. Power and steals are lower than most people thought. His hard just got more difficult with Pujols gone. Plus he has been going through cold streaks and he is on your bench. Ogando was a setup man four months ago and I for one expect a regression, limit innings, or some other form of dropping from the sky. Bourns will help in R and SB's plus MArmol will give help in Era, K, SV and maybe WHIP. Plus I prefer to roll with two closers anyways.


Help?

I like giving up both OF better but either 1 seems like you get what you need out of the deal

I would acctually do this trade. I would be happy to dump Ugando before his almost inevitable fall from grace.

Because you are in a H2H league, you need to be careful when targeting one category. In this case, you said that you are going after steals. You can lose the SB category every week and still win your league. You couldn't do that if it was a roto league.

Bourn's average will likely drop some, but he will give you 100 runs and 50+ steals if he stays healthy. I would keep Jones and give Ogando.

I hate locking up a valuable OF slot with a slap hitting rabbit but you really needed the closer too so the deal should work out. Which Gordon is on your bench BTW? I like this deal much better if it's Alex. He'd fit your lineup better as the replacement to Adam Jones at Util than would Dee Gordon. I'd hate to be starting two speed only players among my 10 starting bats.

Yeah, I would do this deal if you're giving up Ogando but not Jones.
