Would any of those be keepers for next season? The thing I do not like is the picks you are giving up for it. Tex is on the downslide and Montero is a beast, though I could trade him...Give up less high picks and I think you do it

the keepers im aiming at are cano, felix, sale and harper.

our league has it where if you trade for a pick you get that pick no matter what. if you trade 1st rounder but have a 1st round player then you will lose your next possible pick. so either way if i give a 2nd and 4th or 3rd and 4th im still going to lose the 1st and 2nd anyways.

Thanks for the help with mine. If Tex or Ellsbury are not keepers for you next year, there is no way I do this trade with the picks you are giving up.

I agree also that you're sacrificing too much future for the now.

You have too many keeper-worthy guys with your additions that not only do you not get to keep, but you lose next year also by losing draft picks.

I like going for the win, but I think you're ravaging your future, personally.

Thanks for the help on mine!
