    Should I take this deal

    So I gt offered
    Edwin Encarnacion
    Shin-Soo Choo
    Paul Konerko
    Jesus Montero
    Jeff Francouer
    Felix Hernandez

    For my
    Adrian Beltre
    Hunter Pence
    Chris Carpenter
    My initial reaction was No because in my eyes the best player he's giving me is Felix Hernandez and I don't think he's gonna have a good especially with the arrival of Pujols and Morales coming back... And I would also have to drop 3 players?
    Any thoughts on weather I should or shouldn't

    My team right now
    C Brian McCann
    1b Adrian Gonzalez
    2b Michael Cuddyer
    3b Adrian Beltre
    SS Alexi Ramirez
    Of Justin Upton
    Of Andrew McCutchen
    Of Hunter Pence

    • You would be getting Felix, Konerko, and Choo for Beltre and Pence, as the rest of the players involved are non factors. Chris Carpenter is injured so this trade gets that off your hands. I don't see why you wouldn't do it.

    • I take this unless your league is ultra shallow or its a keeper league. Getting way too much production and upside for what you're giving up.

      Please answer mine:


    • I think that's a pretty good offer you got.

    • Looks fine to me. I would probably end up dropping Encarnacion, Borjous and Moreland. I would also consider trading one of your stud Catchers. McCann seems to have the most name value. Felix would certainly round out your pitching staff. Also, I wouldn't decide on how Felix is going to pitch just because a few hitters are on one team.

      • At first glance this looks like a bad deal for you right - 3 for 6 - I usually don't like those deals. But - you aren't losing anything you don't have replacement for in Beltre and Pence. Not sure I like Pence this year - with the Philies batters looking battered and in disarray. I'd rather have Konerko than Pence. Some fun facts - courtesy of Matthew Berry:

        "Since 1999, Paul Konerko has averaged 147 games played and 30 homers per season. Konerko is one of two players in all of baseball to hit .300 with 30 home runs and 100 RBIs in each of the past two years.The other? Miguel Cabrera."

        More fun facts:

        David Wright's averages from 2009 to 2011; .284, 78 runs, 18 HRs, 79 RBIs, 20 SBs, 134 games played.

        Last season, Jeff Francoeur had a .285 average, 77 runs, 20 homers, 87 RBIs and 22 steals.

        Carpenter is hurt. We don't know how many starts he will miss - could be 5 - could be all season. He had an extraordinary workload last season - 273 innings including post season and he isn't exactly a spring chicken (37 this year). But you get Felix - who is in his prime (26 this year). Felix will get you the stats - although maybe not as many wins as some other aces. He had 22 quality starts last year.

        You are getting Cho - a player who the last two years before last year - when he was injury riddled and generally not a happy camper - was a lock for .300, 80+ runs, 20 HRs, 85+ RBIs, 20+ SBs.

        There's just a lot of upside to this trade.

        Jesus Montero - young exciting hitter - lots of upside - and if he doesn't pan out - what did you drop for him? bench warmers. People who were replaceable to begin with.

        I'd do the deal in a heart beat - I'd even consider keeping E5. He's bound to have a good and healthy season one of these days. I might even drop Crispin order to keep him - but then I don't know if you are plkaying roto or H2H - maybe you feel you need the SBs Crisp provide over the potential upside of E5.

        Anyways - first glance - not a great deal for you - look a little deeper though - I'd do it.

      • I'm not just no basing my opinion because of them he really didn't have a great year last year and as we kno the division has gotten better and he's not having a great spring neither Datz y im saying that... But I appreciate the input

    • u have no reason to do that.
