    Blockbuster: Yes or no

    This was just offered to me:

    They get:

    1B Albert Pujols
    CF Andruw Jones
    LF Barry Bonds
    3B Scott Rolen

    I get:

    1B David Ortiz
    3B/LF Miguel Cabrera
    1B/LF Adam Dunn
    CL Chad Cordero

    My team:

    C Mike Piazza
    1B Albert Pujols
    2B Felipe Lopez
    SS Bobby Crosby
    3B Scott Rolen
    LF Barry Bonds
    CF Andruw Jones
    RF Lance Berkman
    Util Willy Mo Pena
    Bench: Robinson Cano, Randy Winn

    SP Jake Peavy
    SP Rich Harden
    SP Noah Lowry
    RP Huston Street
    RP Bobby Jenks
    P Mark Mulder
    Bench: Scott Kazmir

    I would be trading the three best hitters in the NL basically. Bonds' playing time could be limited though. And who knows if Scott Rolen will rebound from his season long injury.

    Dunn and Cabrera are monsters. Papi is pretty damn good too. Cordero had a great season last year, but will he repeat it?

    I think it is too much to trade away, even though the return isn't bad.

    If you need saves, do it, but if you don't (it all depends how many people are in the league) I would still do it. Bonds is iffy, and so is Rolen (coming back from injury). You would be getting 4 bonafide healthy players in return. I would do it. Who knows, maybe you could spin off Cordero for someone else to fill another need?

    I would not wait one second on this trade. I would jump on it and make the trade now before they decide not to do it.
