    Alex Gordon - KC 1B, 3B
    Kyle Lohse - Stl SP

    Dustin Pedroia - Bos 2B
    Alex Rios - Tor OF

    Here is my team:
    C- Ivan Rodriguez - Det
    1B - Lyle Overbay - Tor
    2B - Placido Polanco - Det
    3B - Alex Rodriguez -NYY
    SS - Derek Jeter - NYY

    I like the trade (Being a detroit fan wanting Granderson) for Pedroia but I don't like giving away Alex Rios for Alex Gordon!?

    Any help please...?

    • Jump on it, good deal for you and you could use the OF help!

    • Granderson should keep you with speed in the OF but will also get you HR and 3B's. Lohse is becoming a stud pitcher for the cardinals also and gordon can be steady. I would pull the trigger, I am high on granderson, his 2nd half can only get better and I think you can afford loosing 2nd base. If not happy try to get someone else for gordon if possible

    • Tough one. You aren't deep in the bullpen and you're giving up another reliever. On the other hand, there are plenty of relief pitchers available (free agents) that you could pick up to remedy this.

      Pedroia is one of the young up and coming 2B at a position that is shallow while Polanco isn't getting any younger.

      Granderson is much better than his current stats.

      You have to judge giving up a young player at a shallow position for another young player at a position that is much deeper. Your outfield could use some help from the free agent pool as well, but looking at it I can see why you would want to make this trade. If you could trade Polanco instead of Pedroia it would be much better...and why do you need another SP?
