Sorry mate, I think you lost that trade. I would not have gone for it in in your shoes.

You gave up the best player in the trade in Miggy.....who is arguably the best overall fantasy player (definitely top-3).
You also gave up 1 hitter & 1 pitcher for 2 pitchers....and generally, I would much rather have hitters over pitchers.

Now, this might have made sense if you were loaded with hitters and in desperate need of pitching. But it looks like you pitching was already in decent shape......and now you are stuck having to start the likes of Mesoraco at your 2nd utility spot (I assume you haven't drafted yet and will be able to improve there.....but i also assume the pickings will be relatively slim in a dynasty league draft).

It's not a total disaster:

you are loaded with elite SP's (I count 4 legit #1 fantasy SP's.....of course, you had two Aces and a borderline #1/#2 SP before the trade).

And you do have some great hitters....especially in the OF.....but I don't think you had enough hitters to warrant parting with Miggy.

But I think you will eventually end up having to trade away some of that pitching for more hitting.

But really, what it comes down to is that i think you should have been able to get more for Miggy......I would have wanted the guy to throw in another hitter to that trade.....somebody like a Rios or Trumbo or Ike Davis.


help with mine?

Unless there are some keeper rules you didn't mention, I don't like the trade. First, you gave up the best player and did not even get a first round player back. Second you were already stacked at SP with Hamesl and Felix, I don't see that you needed to add Cain and Price.
