My team is in 9th and I need to shake things up.

I have been offered the following:

Hanley Ramirez, Alex Gordon, Eric Byrnes, Aaron Rowand

for

Manny Ramirez, Curtis Granderson, Rich Harden, Brandon Lyon, Clint Barmes

This would give me a lineup of:
C- Soto
1st- Adrian Gonzo
2nd- Robinson Cano
SS- Hanley Ramirez
3B- Alex Gordon
LF- Ryan Braun
CF- Aaron Rowand
RF- Nick Markakis
UT- Carlos Pena, Juan Pierre, Jeff Franceour, Eric Byrnes, Jeff Kent

SP- Johan, Lincecum, Lackey, Maine
RP- Wagner, F. Cordero, Percival, Heath Bell, Joey Devine.

Would you make this deal?

I feel like Hanley is an absolute stud and would improve my team.

What say you?

Hanley is awesome.. but you are giving up quite a bit..

it would depend on the scoring system, but you are 9th.. why the hell wouldn't you do it.. lol

It is a H2H league.

There are 30 categories.

I think I have a ton of pitching depth, and I value Gordon and Hanley over Manny and Granderson actually.

I would almost call Gordon and Granderson the same player in Fantasy... and Manny isn't quite the Manny of old..

I wouldn't think the trade would HURT you in anyway... might not make you any better, but you can't be much worse than 9th either

I've basically played everyone on their best weeks. I think I have a well-balanced team, but what is killing me is guys hitting 240 - like Granderson.

I think the trade helps because I'm not depending on Harden, Lyon or Barmes at all.

You know Harden will get hurt all season, id say give it a shot, Gordon may improve as well
