    Help on this trade

    The trade is

    Giving up: Hamilton, Markakis

    Getting: Jose Reyes, Jermaine Dye

    This was a counter offer to an original trade, I am currently in first in a many stat rotisserie league by 1.5 points. My shortstop right now is Y.Escobar or Nomar. I have a gluttony of outfielders in hamilton, markakis, ellsbury, damon, drew, burrell, and conor jackson. My idea is to get a stud SS for an outfielder and get CJackson into the opened up outfield spot. And then I still have a combination of Ellsbury,Damon, and Drew to fill 2 spots, basically riding the hotter hands for the rest of the season. Thoughts?

    Getting Reyes is nice, but I think you are giving up to much in the trade.

    Hamilton and Markakis are studs. Dye has been great so far, but will he keep it up the rest of the season?

    I think I'd want a better player then Dye to make this deal.

    My only fear is hamilton the rest of the season, at some point i would think he would have to come back to earth a bit, but who knows

    The upgrade at SS should offset the downgrade in the OF. You can ride the hot hand in OF for the next two months, but you probably won't find another SS worth having.

    I'd fish for a better OF than Dye, but the deal isn't too bad as-is.

    I guess the trade should be looked at this way:

    Get:
    Reyes
    Dye
    Conor Jackson

    Give:
    Hamilton
    Markakis
    Y. Escobar

    I might try replacing Markakis with Burrell, or JD Drew.

    He might take Burrell, but him and Markakis are acutually pretty similar stat wise this season. And I doubt he would take Drew especialy with Big Papi coming back.
