Trade offered to me:
I give: Buster Posey
I get: Carlos Santana, Edwin Jackson

I don't know why, but my gut feeling is no on this one. I wouldn't have to drop anybody to accept it, as I have one empty spot after dropping Pettite. I was going to save it to add Jesus Montero if he clears waivers tomorrow (have a high claim, don't want to burn it on him). But do I take this deal instead of adding Montero?

I really like Posey, and Santana has been off and on hurt most of the year and is still not back in the lineup since being taken out Wednesday. I personally would hold. But santana is very good and I do not think you need the throw in pitcher. I would personally hold with Posey.

I agree with fish stay put. Santana has really struggled this year and you have the arms and don't need Edwin.

Definitely agree, keep Posey.

I have both in two separate leagues and enjoy the rewards of Posey more than Santana, especially with Santana injured. I'm sure the other manager thought they could augment that by bringing Jackson into the deal, but I don't see it tipping the scales unless you really, REALLY need a SP.
