Hey in one of my free competetive leagues I have been proposed the following 2 trades -- please give your opinions on whether I should accept the proposal. I am in next to last place in the league(head to head) as Im getting whooped in RBI, SB - also getting beat in R and AVG but not by much each week. It's a normal 5x5

1. Ethier, Chris Davis for Jason Bay
2. Rios, Chrsi Davis for Jason Bay

Hold onto Bay or accept 1 of the deals that have been offered?

Is this the team that's on the link? Could you put your team in your signature if it is? I don't think you should take these deals, but I can't really tell from that link.

No it's not the same team from the link. I'll post my roster when I get home from work today

Don't do either of those deals. You don't want Chris Davis, he is a one category (HR) guy. Bats late in the lineup and will kill you everywhere. Won't even help you with RBI.

I wouldn't trade Bay if I were you. His spot in that lineup is stable (he might get moved up if anything) and will continue to produce big time. The guy I'd be going after if I were you is BJ Upton. He is one of the top base stealers in the game and will also help you in other categories. There are only a few guys like that in the league. He was ranked 16th overall preseason by Yahoo. The window of opportunity is closing on him, however, as he currently has a multi-game hitting streak going and is starting to rake.

Jason Werth might also be someone to take a look at if Victorino's injury is bad because that'll mean he gets moved up in the lineup.

If you could land Ethier or Rios without giving up Bay that'd be ideal. Maybe you can go 2 for 1?
