Al's right, I'd hang on to Perez a bit longer... if he continues to struggle be sure to get Archie Bradley when the DBacks call him up...

Allowing that trade to stand is a travesty. I'd be BS if i was in that league... unless I was Team B, then I'd be grinning from ear to ear. The worst part is that Yahoo! is apparently in on the fix as well. If allowed, not much can be done except getting the commish to ban those two owners for next year... I don't think in-season owner expulsion is allowed.

Tanaka looks outstanding, that may change, once hitters get a book on him his numbers might dip a little, at some point he'll need to make some adjustments - Strasburg just needs to harness his command a bit this year. I think it's a push, but I'd actually say Tanaka as I think he may be more consistent.

I would drop Aoki, personally, that way you have your SB guy (Young), and your HR guy (Kubel), adding Springer to that mix would help, but I'd also be looking into other upgrades in the OF, I'd certainly stay up to date on OF prospects being called up, there a should still be a few good ones after Springer.
It's only been a couple of games... I think Rizzo will end up around 30 HR this year, be a little more patient with him just have a good backup plan in place.
Yeah, he's going to hit about .220 I think. You can't steal bases if you can't get on base and Hamilton and can't do that consistently yet. He was vastly overrated in the preseason.
It depends on need... I think both are solid players. I'm a little leery of Cuddyer although he does have a career OPS over .800 and plays in Colorado, so I don't know why I'm down on Cuddyer, maybe because I'm a big believer in Erasmo Ramirez I think he'll be very good this year. I'd do it if you had a need at SP, in most leagues you can find decent OFs in the free agent pool.
I'd go with Ackley, I think he'll help in more categories and, I believe, is also eligible at 2B which adds some versatility... but, if you really need steals you should go with Revere, although I don't really care for one-dimensional players personally. It would have to be a strong need.
I'm not a Fernando Rodney guy so if Danny Farquhar is available I'd pick him up, I just think he'll end up closing in Seattle. I'd drop a couple of non-closers, maybe... well, definitely Brian Wilson as he's on the DL and pick up Mike Leake. Also, Pedro Strop should close for the Cubs at some point, he'd be a good pickup for O'Day or K-Rod, I think Strop has the higher save potential out of those options. If you want high K rates... Tyler Clippard of the Nats is a good option if available and there's a slim chance he'll end up saving some games. I like the starters you currently have.
I wouldn't make that trade, the Steelers are in a bit of a down year and I've never been a Big Ben fan. Honestly, I've never been a fan of either but I'd stick with Rivers because I trust more in the Mike McCoy/ Ken Whisenhunt offensive brain trust in SD.

I'd have to tell him the trade stands. He made a bad trade and now that he's sober he's looking for a way out of it, you also have to look at what kind of a precedent you're setting. If you reverse this trade who's to say this won't happen with more frequency.

I like that trade. I'd start with that offer and see where it goes from there. You're right, Gronk could have a BIG YEAR IF HEALTHY. I just can't trust that he'll stay healthy for any stretch of time, there's something weird going on with that arm and back trouble is always a concern. TRich WILL have a big year and the injury risk is much lower. Don't worry about having two Browns... Gordon and Cameron are legit and their only weapons they'll get the ball especially if the Browns are trailing in the 2nd half of games.

Offer the trade and see what happens, you're right you need to upgrade the QB spot. I don't see either offer being accepted so expect to have to sweeten the deal, but, you never know. I also agree you should start with the Ryan Mathews/ Eli Manning offer. Brady looks to be developing a rapport with Thompkins, although when Gronk comes back look for his targets to decline.

I wouldn't give up Jordan Cameron, although I like Hopkins and Thompkins seems to be the guy Brady is developing a rapport with out of the rookie WRs in New England. I would actually see if he'd take Gronk, I don't like the injury history there and Cameron is a very similar player only without the doofus factor... and see if you can get Brown out of the trade because you're right, the other team is trying to dump a wasted roster space on you. It comes down to need, though, TRich is a beast and if you're really high on him go out and get him. The trade is fair enough.
