Dealing Crawford

It would be selling low- But Im concerned with his knee and production. I am top 3 in my league in every hitting category except RBIs (4th).
Preliminary thinking just to hear some feedback- If I could deal Crawford for say- Francour and Haren. Should I pull the trigger?

or a strait up deal for Aramis Ramirez- Thought process being that I increase power while the other owner gets speed

I had good feedback from the Aram deal... If its a go should I pull the trigger? Im good with speed--- Increase HRs and RBIs?

If you've got Reyes, Crawford is completely expendable. helton/cojax is a poor 1B duo so A-Ram can definitely improve your 1B/3B. i'd negotiate for more but i'd take an even swap w/ a-ram. i'd also consider atkins if you get perhaps a bit of a sweetener...

haren/francouer is a tougher one. frenchy is solid but just not very spectacular right now. haren has a history of poor 2nd halves. now i have both of them on two teams and i wouldn't trade them for crawford so i guess that says something.

Is he expendable if you have Bourn? Or do Crawford's better AVE and OBP justify hanging on to him? I also have Rios and Markakis for steals.

bourn is pretty crappy. i'd rather deal him. so i'd want more from a crawford trade. if you can get a top 20 player, i'd do it. maybe a prince fielder or carlos lee? i'd be surprised but i've seen worse....
