I need some feedback on this trade offer. The owner in one of my leagues who has Mark Teixeira has been sitting him on their bench since he's been in a slump. I know he'll come around quickly, so I've been trying to get him. Here is the offer he just countered with:

I send him Shane Victorino and Tommy Hanson for Mark Teixeira.

Is there any reason I shouldn't do this deal? Here is my current team:

C- Joe Mauer
1B- Kendry Morales
2B- Ian Kinsler
SS- Alex Gonzalez
3B- Pablo Sandoval
OF- Ryan Braun
OF- Carlos Gonzalez
OF- Chris Young
Util- Billy Butler
BE- Shane Victorino
BE- Martin Prado
DL- Curtis Granderson

P- Octavio Dotel
P- Kevin Gregg
SP- Francisco Liriano
SP- Johann Santana
SP- Tommy Hanson
RP- Carlos Marmol
RP- Chad Qualls
BE- John Lackey
BE- CJ Wilson
BE- Stephen Strasburg
BE- Colby Lewis


I could then try to move Butler or Morales for another SP or a SS...

Thanks for any feedback!

Well, there's the thing about Teixara's .181 BA and 2 homers on the year.

Other than that it's a good trade.

He'll surely turn around.....right?

Lots of normally reliable hitters having terrible starts this season. Must be something in the PED's.

Tex is a notoriously slow starter. I would pull the trigger. A lot of Tex owners probably want to get rid of him, though. Is there any way you could give up a different pitcher than Hanson? That would make it an even easier decision.

no way victorino is sick, and tex is just stinking it up so far. sure he might turn it around but victorino is solid all year, i would have to say no to that deal.

If you need to think about that offer, then you absolutely know jack shit about fantasy baseball.

Hanson isn't even a top 15 arm, and Victorino isn't close to Teixera.

You better hope you hit accept before he exploded today. Teixera has done this ever single year. He starts slow and goes batshit once summer hits. It's routine for him.

I'm guessing you are a casual baseball fan.

Too late, brah. Everybody who plays fantasy knows Tex isn't worth shit in April. Now he's coming around.
