    Just made a move

    10 Team 5x5 Keeper league

    I traded Ortiz for Dunn and Evan Longoria.

    Here's my team now.

    Victor Martinez
    Berkman
    Aaron Hill
    Tulowitzki
    Reynolds/Longoria
    Hunter
    Hawpe
    Dunn
    Helton
    Beltre
    Kent

    Bedard, Carmona, Smoltz, Shields, Kuroda, Pettitte, Hoffman, Jones, Capps

    Thoughts? Risky move I know.

    I think it's a move that could backfire obviously, but I think you'll get as much production from Dunn and Longoria that you would have from Ortiz. You also get younger as far as keepers go.

    Your starting pitching depth is nice. I think you you could upgrade from Hill at 2B and could use an upgrade in the OF with it being a 10 team league.

    How many players do you keep each year?

    I can keep 4. Hopefully Longoria, and Tulo will hit their stride in full force this year. I always thought Hill was an underrated second baseman, especially coming out of the late rounds. Maybe I'm being to bias.

    Well it was Ortiz for Dunn AND Longoria in a keeper league.
