    Would You Do This Trade? Very difficult!

    First the background of my league:

    It is a keeper league.

    My OF currently consists of Alfonso Soriano, Vernon Wells, Jermaine Dye, Michael Bourn and Rick Ankiel.

    I am stacked in the INF with Victor Martinez, Ryan Howard, Chone Figgins, Jimmy Rollins, Carlos Gullien, Carlos Delgado, Orlando Cabrera and Aramis Ramirez.

    My rotation sits with Javier Vazquez, Matt Cain, Feliz Hernandez, John Maine, Pedro Martinez, Francisco Liriano, Chris Carpenter and Greg Maddux

    In our league there is no limit on innings pitched so you can add and drop players as you wish.

    I have currently been offered this trade:

    Delmon Young
    Roy Halladay
    Kelvim Escobar
    Felix Hernandez

    I thought about doing this in a heartbeat, but is Delmon Young really better than the OF I currently have? Is Halladays best years behind him? How healthy is Escobar? Can Felix Hernandez finally break through to the elite?


    Delmon Young

    • i would do this trade as well. Not only are you getting a stud in Halladay who's best years are not behind him, Escobar is also a stud when healthy, and will be back in the Angels rotation at some point during the first half of the season. Delmon Young has upside, he has only been in the bigs for one full season and almost had 100 rbi. Pull that trigger.

    • Why havent you accepted this deal already???

      Delmon Young is a great young player with 20/20 potential. Halladay a a good starter that will give you a decent ERA and WHIP and probably 15+ wins. Those two alone are worth King Felix. Escobar is gravy even if he is hurt.

      Also, why do you even have Chris Carpenter on your roster?? The guy wont pitch until at least July, maybe August. Drop him and let someone else waste a roster spot.

    • I would do that easly . Halladay , is just consisted and u don't every worry about him . other guys are just a bonus since you have F.Lirano, Cain , J.Maine for a core of young arms

    • i have watched all blue jays spring games and halliday guaranteed to get better numbers than felix and yes delmon young could easily compete with bourn...you should do it before he changes his mind
