A guy in my league is desperate for saves and has a surplus of outfielders he's willing to part with: Hamilton, Bay, Granderson, Victorino, Dunn, and Ibanez. I've got Mariano, Fuentes, Franklin, and Soriano/Hawkins-in-waiting, with Hoffman on my DL, so I'm looking to trade OF+RP for one of his better OFs.
I posted this question a week ago on the main page, and Grey helpfully suggested I offer Fuentes/Ethier for Bay. Since then, the offer has remained unanswered, but my situation has changed, with Vlad going down and Ethier proving to be one of the few productive hitters in my lineup. The season's still young, but I'm currently ranked near the bottom in most offensive categories, while my pitching has been solid. Does this trade still make sense? As an alternative, another guy in my league has Adrian Beltre, Derrek Lee, and Alexei Ramirez on the trading block and is also looking for closers, so I'm considering offering Franklin or Hoffman for Beltre, in order to upgrade my Reynolds 3B situation.
Trade still makes sense. I don't mind that trade for Beltre, I'd offer Franklin first.
