10 team H2H league
Got two pending trades, and I'm a little nervous giving up two studs going into the playoffs. What do you think?
Trade 1 (to a team not in the playoffs):
Trade 2 (to a team in the playoffs):
I'm very nervous about losing Hamilton AND Holliday, but I really needed closers. I think the second one is fine, but I think I overpaid a bit on the first one. I'm kinda banking on Soto outproducing Shoppach...not sure if that's a safe bet or not...
[[Note: I consider Giambi & Slowey relatively worthless, and probably Campillo too at this point]]

when v martinez comes back shoppach becomes a part-timer so that part of it is ok. if you need any more closers check the free agents there may be a couple available like lewis, hanrahan or ayala.

Thanks for the advice. :) I already picked up Francisco, but he's a question mark....

Hanrahan and Lewis are both on teams...Ayala is available, but I'm not sure I want him, and he'll lose the closing role when wagner comes back anyway.
The first trade, I figured Hamilton to Abreu wasn't too bad a downgrade, and Soto should be an upgrade from shoppach (though looking at the stats it doesn't seem like one, by much). Giambi is worthless to me (have Pujols at 1st and there are others out there good enough to be backups, and I have no pitching staff at all...I just piece it together week to week, which has been my strategy all year in H2H's, so i don't mind losing Campillo.
