    Trade Advice Needed

    Should I do this deal:

    Randy Winn
    Bubba Crosby
    Craig Counsell

    for

    Grady Sizemore


    I'd also have to drop two players. Likely Mark Ellis and either Willy Tavares or Jeromy Burnitz.

    Thoughts? Should I do this deal?

    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    No. Bubba Crosby and Craig Counsell are waiver-wire fodder, so you'd basically be giving up Sizemore for Winn. Don't do it.

    I concur, if you're giving up Sizemore, don't even think about it. Reject it, and move on.

    I'm pondering a counter offer of

    Josh Beckett
    Randy Winn

    for

    Grady Sizemore


    Seem fair?

    Would have to know the rest of your roster and the categories you use, but in general, yeah, that seems like a fair trade. Sizemore could go all crazy and put up huge numbers across the board, but then again, so could Beckett.

    Hitting stats
    AB, R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS

    Pitching Stats
    W, CG, SHO, SV, K, ERA, WHIP


    My other OFers:
    Adam Dunn
    Johnny Damon
    Pat Burrell
    Wily Tavares
    Wily Mo Pena
    Jeromy Burnitz

    My Starters include:
    Jake Peavy
    Johan Santana
    Bronson Arroyo
    Andy Pettitte
    Scott Kazmir
    Francisco Liriano
    Félix Hernández
    Mark Prior is on the DL for me atm as well.

    If I can get Beckett I'll probably try to deal a starter for another closer.

    Re: Trade Advice Needed

    Hmmm, I don't know. Your pretty loaded at SP. Santana, Peavy, Felix and now with Liriano moving to the rotation, Pettitte and Kazmir aren't exactly scrap either and Prior coming back soon... while I think the deal in itself is fair, I don't know if I'd move Sizemore for another SP when you've got all of those guys.

    How many SP's do you start each week, how many OF/UTIL's?
