I would take that trade and then drop as many of those players as I could. You should drop about ten of those guys and see what free agents you can get. There should much better players that are free agents right now. Pretty much, you need to completely rebuild that team. I would say keep Kouzmanoff, and get rid of everyone else. You will be happy with the results.
On paper, the trade is a win for you.
But, it downgrades you a lot at SS, while it only helps a little at 3B and OF.
I don't see what's amazing about this team. It's good, yes, but it wouldn't be too hard to get it from a few trades.
I wouldn't do it. Maybe you could trade for another closer, though.
The deal is good, the position trade offs for you are not good. Why would you do this deal? explain the positive side of it for you?
You gain a 3rd baseman and an OF for which you have no place to put them. You downgrade at SS significantly.
The only way this deal helps is if you wheel and deal for SP. Instead of looking at blockbuster deals like this one, you should concentrate on trading your overly deep OF and trying to get some pitching in return. Troy T should not be occupying your DL spot right now. Stick with your guns and trade away Carlos Lee for Josh Beckett, or similar.

what do you need help with? don't touch your ridiculous team. your friends are all nerds that watch star trek...they clearly don't watch baseball. there is no way you should have gotten away with having this roster. winning your league will actually be boring because the 2nd place team will be 30 points beneath you. congrats.
