Give: Bourn, Francis, and Atkins

Those three players are gonna ride the pine all year. A-rod and Fileder are better than Atkins. Francour, Upton, and Granderson are better than Bourne. Francis is waiver wire fodder in a 12 team league let alon an 8 team league. Upgrade where you can use it instead of hording talent that does you no good!
I Want In That League Next Year!!! Anyone Who Could Live Draft That Team in a 12 team standard 5x5 format, must not be playing with anyone who has ever even seen a game before. If it is a 6 or 8 team league then maybe it can happen but still tough to do. As for the trade, the only thing that would sway it for me to do it, would be the "talent left in the waiver pool" If You could grab some speed and maybe a multi position player that wouldn't kill You in any category, then I would probably do it. You definitely do not need to do it, just send in your address now and have them mail you the trophy. The rest of the league can fight it out for second!!

so u guys don't think my pitching staff needs another Ace?? I am in an 8 person league which is the reason for my team but I drafted good. Also traded abreu and ibanez for Bj upton and franceuor
I would keep the 3. Don't like giving up a once every 5 day player for two starters and a pretty good tier 2 pitcher. And by the way, who are you playing against? Mo Larry and Curly? Your team is stacked.
The deal is really Becket for Atkins with Bourn to even out the deal a little. Francis is trash.
Based on Value alone I would do it in a heartbeat, but you allready have 4 aces, so I'm not sure. You have no room to play Bourn especially with Victorino allready! You also have Longoria who has a 50/50 shot of being better than Atkins. You can't play all 4 of Prince, Atkins, Longoria, and A-rod anyway.
This also leaves you two open spots to pick up WW talent.
Yeah, I'd do it!
