I'm putting some stock into Grey's top 100 from here on. Last week I pulled off a gem, in my mind, getting Markakis for Delvin Young and Matt Garza. Markakis on the team instantly put Abreu on the trading block....and now I'm on the verge of a blockbuster that could solidify my squad for the stretch run.

I'm offering...
Kinsler (Grey's List #23)
JJ Hardy
Mike Lowell (GL #97)
Granderson (GL #42)
Abreu (GL #44)

I'd get...
Rollins (GL #16)
Pedroia
Atkins (GL #31)
Pence (GL #94)

This would make my roster look like this...
C - Soto (GL #63)
1B - Atkins (GL #31)
2B - Pedroia
SS - Rollins (GL #16)
3B - M Cabrera (GL #13)
LF - Holliday (GL #6)
CF - McLouth (GL #35)
RF - Markakis (GL #24)
Util - Giambi (GL #90)

backups:
CF/RF - Victorino (GL #58)
CF/RF - Pence (GL #94)
1B/LF - CoJack
2B/SS/3B - Y. Escobar
Util - Thome
3B - Encarnacion

Pitching Staff...
CC Sabathia (GL # 26)
Lincecum (GL #69)
Shields (GL #88)
Chamberlain
Baker
Cain
Papelbon (GL #66)
DL - Wainwright
DL - Bedard (GL# 100...the booby prize)

So, to make a short story long...what do you think of the trade? What do you think of my chances in the 2nd half? (I'm currently in 1st place)

Why are you trading five guys for essentially Rollins and Atkins? I don't like it.

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.

Seriously? I thought I was upgrading with 2 second half studs and the guy I'm trading with may not even make the playoffs. I don't need Abreu nor Granderson with my OF. What if I got a swap of Cain for Billingsley in that same trade? Would that be better?

Because you gave it to me with the new team already in place, I didn't see that you didn't need Abreu and Granderson. All I saw was the moving pieces. My bad. Yeah, the trade's not bad. Pedroia should be better as a weak 2nd baseman than Hardy was as a weak SS.

Sorry. So are you down with it or just lukewarm? If I tried to strongarm Billingsley for Cain do you think I'm asking too much?

I tried to play the same trade to him but with Teixeira instead of Atkins and me giving Giambi instead of Lowell. He called me on it and came back with me giving him Kinsler/Hardy/Granderson/Abreu/Cain for Pedroia/Rollins/Pence/Billingsley. It's not enough for me. I wonder if he'd go one step more and throw in Atkins for Lowell? I think he really wants Kinsler.

Thanks for all your help.

I'm down with it. Try and strongarm. Why not?

The strongarm for Billingsley didn't work but he took the original trade. I hope Rollins and Atkins turn it on in the 2nd half because Pedroia can't hold Kinsler's jock. Thanks again for the 2nd opinion. It always helps.
