I was just offered Doug Fister 2.1, Manny Machado 2.1, Jacoby Ellsbury 10.1 and Aaron Hill 5.3 for my Sterlin Castro 6.1 my league settings are below along wiht my keepers. not sure i would keep even 2 of the guys being given to me for the guys i already have.

2 catchers, 1 of each 1st, 2nd, 3rd, SS, CI, and MI, 4 OF, 2 UT(any position), 5 SP, 3 RP, 2 Swingmen (any pitcher)
BA, BB, R, RBI, SB, SLG, ERA, HD(Holds), K, S, W, WHIP
My Keeper are...
M. Trout(2.10), S. Castro(6.1), P. Fielder(16.2), A. Jones(8.0), S. Marte(2.1) J. Bruce(12.8),D. Wright(11.6), D. Price(8.1), C. Sale(5.0), A. Wainwright(4.1), C. Perez(2.6)

most importantly, your keepers are outstanding so this is just a matter of can you make a top team even better. if you do the deal, trout, fielder, bruce, wright, jones, price, sale, wainwright, ellsbury, hill and machado could be your keepers. how does this compare to your current group? for 2013, the new group looks capable of being better, and for beyond 2013 if machado becomes a better ss than castro the new group seems much superior. yes, i do like machado a lot.
another side of this is that marte, perez, & fister are then available for a trade. a multi player deal from you for one more good piece could make the team even more awesome.
well, i guess i like the trade and think it improves your team. good luck, bob
