So hows the trade and my team?Thanks
Ellsbury is in a contract year so you would expect him to put up the numbers. I think you came away with a win there. He is a bit injury prone as we have seen over the last few seasons but I believe that this year he may come close to his 30-30 season he had. I don't think he will reach 30-30 but something just shy, maybe 25-27 which would still be some solid numbers for him coming off of injury.
Check my post: Jay, Parra, Murphy... Help please!!
I'd rather have Middlebrooks and Minor. I like Ellsbury but in a dynasty Middlebrooks is going to be solid. Ellsbury always gets injured too. Minor is going to be good too. Berkman is good at home against righties and he gets hurt a lot. R/p's you can always get along the way. You have your sb's with Gomez and Middlebrooks will outpower Ellsbury and Minor is a solid S/P so I would have kept what you have.
