10 team keeper league.

Been offered Manny and Yovani Gallardo for Matt Kemp and Matt Cain.

I don't like it. Manny is on the way down, Kemp on the way up. And I'd be out a bat for 50ish games.

Said he's interested in Kemp or Hamilton.

I was thinking maybe Hamilton and one of my two AL pitchers, James Shields or Josh Beckett, for Manny and Chad Billingsly, also on his staff.

Or nothing. I still like The Natural, even if he is ?-y. And Hamilton is a keeper while Manny may not be, and now lives full-time under a guano cloud.

I'm in fourth place, with flounderers Lance Berkman, Chris Davis, and Alexei Ramirez in my lineup. Lagging in runs, dingers, and rbi's.

Other players of interest on his team are David Wright and Grady Sizemore.

Advice, gentlemen?

I'm confused, you don't want Manny, but you're wondering about Hamilton and one of your pitchers for Manny/Billingsley? Please clarify.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I'm not enthusiastic about him, that's true. But I was wondering if there's a worthwhile trade in there somewhere that I shouldn't just stubbornly ignore, or if you think I'm right to just back away.

Nah, you don't need the headache. What if he returns and he slumps? I wouldn't be bothered.

Maybe you can go Kemp and Cain for Sizemore? Grady's value is depressed right now but he will turn it around. If you are currently in 4th place you need to stay away from Manny because you need help now. His value will continue to decline and if you do really want him he'll be a lot cheaper in a month if some idiot in your league doesn't give up too much in a trade for him..

As ludicrous as it sounds I think a lot of people are going to overpay for Manny right now. Sometimes people get so caught up in the idea that they're buying something on sale that they fail to realize the price they're paying isn't discounted. Don't be one of those people.
