Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

True…but this wouldn't exactly damage me too bad for this year either. Jones will certainly contribute (at least) as much as Cespy and while losing Zimmermann would hurt a little, I can find other pitchers out there that would come close to his production (I'm in 1st in ERA and WHIP, need Ks..and Zimmermann's K-rate isn't great)
Should I try to get a closer too, though?

Yea you did good…Trout will be far and away better than Cruz next year (pretty much is this year, too) and the drop off from Sale to Ryu can be absorbed.
Comment on mine?
I get: Adam Jones
I give: Yoenis Cespedes, Jordan Zimmermann
3-year keeper league, standard 5x5 cats
I'm in 3rd place, but it'll take a lot to get me to win the league. Getting Jones would be a move for next year for me.
Am I giving up too much to get him, though? If so, he has a lot of Casilla/Benoit-type closers that I may be able to get from him…should I go for one of them?
If you're offering this, it will (should, anyway) get rejected right away...if the other owner is offering it, accept quickly before he comes to his senses
I'm looking into possibly dealing away Goldschmidt. He is a keeper for me for at least the next 2 seasons, but I'm in 3rd place (13 points back) in our 5x5 roto league and feel I still have a shot to win.
I may have a shot at landing Rizzo or Bautista (both in addition to another player...David Robertson?).
Questions: A) would this be a smart move for me long-term, and B) who would you rather have for the next 2 seasons...Rizzo or Bautista?
I get: Jose Bautista, Curtis Granderson, Zach Wheeler
I give: Stephen Strasburg, Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce
3-year keeper league (I would obviously keep Bautista), 5x5 roto
I could use some more power, but I'm also needing strikeouts (hopefully Wheeler could help w/ that), so I'm not sure this is the best deal for me. Thoughts? Fair deal?
