Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I get Desmond Jennings and Baumgarner..I give Pence and Beckett ( My team is getting no stolen bases fyi)
OF Alex Gordon
OF Melky Cabrera
I say you make the trade no question. Bumgarner will be better than Becket this season, throw in the NL West vs AL East, young old, and Jennings and Pence just offer different skills. Looks like a very solid move for your squad.

Sounds reasonable. I'd do it.
This is also the optimal time to look to trade Hamilton as it's an almost certainty that he will miss time due to injury. Chapman is another sell high candidate. Most fantasy seasons are made or lost on draft day (maybe 60%), however another 30% (or so) of how well a team does is due to early season trades.
