Pedroia is safer then Kinsler.
Castro is a boost over Alexei.
Storen becomes your best closer, and i like over Swisher.
The only spot you lose is Haren/Gio, and you still would have 4 SP studs, and SP is the easiest to find imo.
This. I actually like this trade for you. Castro should be a very nice upgrade over Alexei and I would prefer Pedroia to Kinsler. Also in a 10 team league Swisher doesn't have much value. I would probably be playing LoMo over him anyway, and Storen is a stud closer.
Yes you loose on the Haren/Gio angle but you have to give this guy something, and I think you pitching is extremely strong anyway.
This is what I thought as well. I think you win the trade pretty easily. Pedroia is awesome. Castro is an up and coming top 5 SS. Storen is a stud closer. Gio is a solid starter. So you lose a boderline ace but everything else is upgrades.
