12 team roto 5x5. Don't need Berkman, already have Howard at 1b and D. Lee stashed on the bench.

Give: Hamilton & Berkman

Get: Cliff Lee & J Upside

I'd make that deal. With the caveat that in roto formats, at this point in the season you need to look at the points categories to see if it makes sense for your team (in addition to the players).

Thumbs Down

Berkman is heating up. Why waste all that roster time for no production? Plus, he might be traded to a competitor soon, so he'd have more opportunities. Cliff Lee will be getting racked more, but hes legit. I would NOT do this trade.

I agree with daver.

If you can make up some categories with a top SP and are comfortable in the hitting cats I think this is a solid deal for you.

it depends on what you need. This trade is very close, even if you're an Upton believer (like I am)
