Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
real simple trade. An owner offered me Desmond Jennings for Hanley Ramirez.
I'm set at OF (Braun, Harper, Markakis, Austin Jackson, and Angel Pagan. I'm less set at SS and 3rd where I have Asdrubel Cabrera, Pedro Alvarez, and Todd Frazier. Do I wait to use Hanley later in the summer of make the move now? This is probably as good of a 1 for 1 swap as I could hope for, but my roster would be unbalanced without more trading.
This is a standard Yahoo! H2H league, btw.

You probably drafted Hanley before injury. I drafted him in 6th round after injury, but I was using a cheat sheet I forgot to update and totally blanked on his injury as time was winding down. I tried to make up for it but the infielders I went after kept getting taken right before me, and I still had to get some relievers.
I'm leaning to keep Hanley, but I need to stat competitive early too.
Don't worry about unbalanced roster. Season hasn't even started yet. IF you can get Jennings for Hanley, I'd jump at it. IF it was me, I wouldn't be afraid of finding if you have a Bryce Harper fan in your league (you don't always have to trade your worst outfielder). See if somebody offers an upper level third baseman (maybe not Wright or Longoria), but maybe you get an Aramis Ramirez caliber for Harper. IF I had Aramis, I'd seriously look at a Harper/Alvarez for Aramis/anything trade. I do agree that you could use an upgrade at third (even though I recognize the upside of Frazier). Maybe even offer a Harper/Frazier for Longoria. It would help if Frazier gets off to a good start.
