    Should I make this trade??

    For Fantasy baseball, I was offered this trade, Alex Rios and Trevor Hoffman for Roy Oswalt and Jason Bay.
    I have Roy Oswalt and Jason Bay, I am trading for Rios and Hoffman. I need another good bat at OF, since my main guy was Curtis Granderson but hes on the DL. My others are Rowand, and Taverias.
    I am also trying to trade CC Sabathia and JJ Hardy for Hanley Ramirez, the guy wants a SP for him.

    I'd do it. Oswalt's peripherals for whatever reason have been on the downslope, he could be in for a rough year this year. You desperately need some OF help and Hoffman is a lock as a closer.

    BTW no chance you get Hanley for that package.

    Probably not, but the guy is desperate for pitchers, I told him I would work something for him. If I could get Hanley I would be set, with Rios, A-Rod, Hanley Ramirez. That would be a nice trio.

    I like Oswalt this year (Good Offense, Good Closer, could win High Teens), but I'd probably do it. There's no guarantee that Bay bounces back, and I really like Alex Rios. Hoffman will be his reliable self too (Sub 3 ERA, 35+ Saves)

    Do it! Rios is going to explode this year. Hoffman has been shaky but he will settle down. Oswalt hasn't been the same player he was a couple of years ago.

    I hate giving anything of value for closers but I love Rios. I'd probably do it.

    I'd rather have A-Rod and Wainwright, by a mile.

    The reason he's trying to sell on Hanley is because his manager made a comment about him possibly running less this year.
