    Just made a trade...

    Traded:

    Swisher
    Glaus

    for

    H. Ramirez
    Beltre


    Good or bad? Initially thought it was awesome for me, then after looking at it I'm not so sure.

    I love Hanley Ramirez, and it looks like Glaus may be hurt now. I don't think Beltre is going to give you much. Swisher isn't going to hit for much of an average, but he should give you solid power numbers. However, he did just sign a long term contract, and I like guys that are playing with something to prove.

    However, I think Ramirez is a top 15, top 10 guy by the end of the year.

    I love these deals, and you did very well.

    The only guy worth having in that exchange is Ramirez, by a long shot.

    Glaus is hurt and Swisher stinks (he'll tank by August again). Nice job in taking that guy. Seriously.

    Made the trade before Glaus got hurt, thank god.

    In my league, the scoring is a little abnormal. HR & RBI hitters will gather a bunch of points. This is where Glaus has a little extra value, and Beltre has some value. Still though, I will probably need a new 3B.

    I've never played a single game in any fantasy league so take my opinion for what's worth. While I LOVE Beltre as a real life player, i'd never take a righthander who plays half of his games in Safeco if their homerun and rbi totals meant anything to me....
