    Question about trade offer

    I'm in a 10-team NL-only league. It's auction draft (salary cap of $260) with 2-year contracts (extensions cost $5 per year).

    Being able to keep up to 10 players from year to year, I have a ton of talent coming for next season (Ryan Braun, Adam Wainwright, Jair Jurrjens, Brandon Phillips, Andrew Miller, Jorge Campillo, Johnny Cueto, Yovani Gallardo, etc.)

    Well in any event, I've been trying to acquire Hanley Ramirez. The owner that has the rights to him for next season wants Nate McLouth and Corey Hart in return.

    Ramirez has already been extended and will be in his final year next year, costing $19. McLouth and Hart are both in their first years, costing $9 and $5 respectively and could be extended.

    After looking at the stats this season and also last year, I've concluded that McLouth is the real mccoy and is close to an equal of Hanley (if not outright exceeding him).

    Does anyone think I should do that trade or am I in the right thinking I'd be better off keeping Hart and McLouth?

    I would do that. Hart and McLouth are expendable. Ramirez is $$$$

    I have Jeff Keppinger, but being a 10-keeper limit, I have a lot of good values and I'm still unsure of how valuable Keppinger will be until I know he's going to be the everyday shortstop.

    I also have Ryan Theriot coming in for next year, and he's playing really well obviously, but Theriot will not be a very good value to keep ($14).

    Yeah, I think you do that. An IF of Ramirez, Braun, Phillips....thats good. I think McClouth has a crash in his future anyway.

    That's my concern. I don't think he'll fall off the face of the earth, but in the minor leagues his career was something like one homer every 40-60 at-bats. This sudden power surge doesn't seem like something that's likely to continue at this pace.

    I've got the other owner thinking of throwing in Ryan Doumit, which may (for me), put it over the edge. Hanley is a stud, and for that reason I've obviously been chasing him. But I'd been having a hard time justifying giving up both of those guys for him. I might now be leaning toward pulling the trigger.
