I've been offered Hanley Ramirez and Ryan Braun for my players, A-Rod, and Jeter. I'm leading this league and not sure if I should or not. I'm already lacking in homeruns and getting hurt on caught stealing so I'm not sure this would be a good move for me although I hate rooting for the yankees and don't like having their players on my team. BUT I do want to win the league.

If you listen to the "fans", they will tell you what they think based on their true loyalties to their players.
If you listen to Fantasy baseball people, you wll make this trade. Numbers wise, you lose a little when comparing Hanley to Arod in RBI's and HR's. But you gain in SB's here. You need SB's.
But Braun will give you more HR's and RBI's over Jeter, therefore offsetting that loss. So you will be about even in Power and RBI's w/ this trade AND gain steals. This is a good trade for you. Do it.
Hanley has gotten better over the last two years steadily. Braun is getting better. We know that Jeter is declining, so he will get worse this year. And AROd will be consistent. So Remember you are getting two players with consistently rising numbers while losing two player that, combined, are declining b/c of Jeters numbers.

people think that because you have arod he is untouchable and you go to the second ranked player who is hanley and all of the sudden your taking a huge step down. Do the trade

I'd do it. Even if the Marlins suck Hanley will still provide great numbers. He's certainly better than Jeter and Braun is a solid replacement at 3B. You'll get more HR's out of Hanley and Braun and more SB's too.

If SBs is a category u will rule it by adding both these players. A-Rod is silly good...the best, but Hanley is the 2nd best and is more rounded. Braun is just like Hanley...he does evrything. Jeter will get you hits but not alot of HRs or a equal amount of RBIs. If I was u I would Have already done it. I don't care about Caught Stealing if u have these two guys they will get caught from time to time but the guys who are leading the Caught Stealing category are the guys with No or Little SBs

yankee fan here. and im telling u i love havin yankees, and would overpay for them. i would def take jeter / arod for hanley and RB. they are rookies, anything can happen with em. you know jeter and arod will have a good avg together, put up a ton of runs together, and have 200-250 rbi combined and up to 70 tops hrs combined. thats generous, but consistancy is the key.
what i would do is find out if the guy is a yankee fan, try to milk him for a bit more. arod is the number 1 pick in every draft, make sure he knows why. try to get those 2 guys and something else you need. maybe upgrade another player, add a closer to his side and get some saves out of it, or add some slumping sp who will break out of it. ie verlander, or cc sabathia, and throw in one of ur shitty pitchers, like a jamie shields/ted lilly.
maybe offer those trades and keep this one sitting around, whatever u do dont worry about rushing this decision. lota time left, take ur time deciding.

Hey Jon, that's some great feedback I appreciate it. The guy is a Yankees fan and he's my old boss..haha He's in last place and I'm in first but the gap isn't too far to second place. I'll see about getting a 3rd player for these two. Great idea!
