In a 12 team, Roto 5x5 league (Non Leeper), which duo would you rather have for your #2 SP and #3 OF :

Zambrano and Damon
or
Cain and Ludwick
?

Thanks for your reply!

I have the Big Z/Damon duo right now and thought about proposing this trade. Do you think the trade is close enough? I personnaly like Damon a little bit over Ludwick, but I think an OF with more power would be a better fit for my team...

C: Chris Iannetta
1B: Prince Fielder
2B: Chase Utley
3B: Aramis Ramirez
SS: J.J. Hardy
2B/SS: Mike Fontenot
1B/3B: Edwin Encarnacion
OF: Shane Victorino
OF: Corey Hart
OF: Johnny Damon
OF: Torii Hunter
OF: Fred Lewis
UTIL: Kevin Kouzmanoff

P: Josh Beckett
P: Carlos Zambrano
P: Aaron Harang
P: B.J. Ryan
P: Francisco Cordero
P: Chris Young
P: Jered Weaver
P: Ubaldo Jimenez
P: John Maine

Bench: Leo Nunez
Bench: Ryan Franklin
Bench: Franklin Gutierrez

If this trade is declined, I could propose Damon for Ludwick straight up. Other OF that I'd like to get as my #3 are Krispie Young, Pence and Hawpe... Do you think that offering Damon straight up for any of them could get accepted? And would they fit better in my lineup?

And I guess you prefer Cain over Big Z?

I do prefer Cain over Z. I also think Damon is fair value for any of those guys. I like Ludwick, Hawpe, Pence then Young in that order for your team, but they're all real close.

Thanks again for your reply!

I've just noticed that the guy who owns Pence and Hawpe also has Bedard... Do you prefer Bedard over Harang? Because I thought about offering him this trade (instead of the straight up OF swap) :

I get Hawpe (or Pence) and Bedard and I give Damon and Harang... Good idea?

Do you prefer this trade or the Cain/Ludwick for Zambrano/Damon trade?

Thanks! And do you prefer this trade to the other one (Cain/Ludwick for Zambrano/Damon)?

Alright thanks again :)

I'll propose his Hawpe/Pence and Bedard for my Damon and Harang...

If he rejects, I'll propose the other 2 for 2 to the other manager (his Cain and Ludwick for my Big-Z and Damon)...

If this guy rejects that trade, I'll propose Damon straight up for the other OFers (Ludwick, Hawpe, Pence, Krispie Young)...

Sounds like a plan :)

Thanks again Grey for your inputs! I always appreciate getting some experts advice... That's a great way to learn!
