Another Hamilton Trade Topic From Me...

I was offered Brian Roberts and Alfonso Soriano for my Hamilton, Cano, and Brian Wilson.

My outfield consists of Holliday, Quentin, Pence, Rios, and Damon.

My bullpen consists of Soria, Torres, Mike Gonzalez, Fuentes, and Dan Wheeler.

I lead in saves by 9 over the 2nd place guy.

I lead in HR's, OPS, and RBI's.

I'm 8th out of 10 in the stolen base department.

Do I do this deal?

It's not lopsided, and I can sense you really want to do it, so you should if it gives you piece of mind. But you're giving up a bit too much. You shouldn't have to give three guys for his two. A two for two would be fine here.

He insists on Wilson due to his K/9 which is a category in our league. I don't have any qualms with moving him. Having Wheeler around is nice and we have plenty of other middle relief/set-up options available on the waiver wire if any trades take place where guys slide into a closer role (devine, casilla, bucholz, etc).

I know Cano is starting to heat up but I need a 2B who runs. Once Soriano returns I think he should be quite solid the rest of the season. Cano is also a round 4 keeper status and I wasn't keeping him, Roberts is available to keep in round 7.

As I said, it sounds like you want to do it. So you should, but Soriano's far from a premiere base stealer nowadays. But as I also said, it sounds fair, just slightly in the other person's favor. Not too much to not do it though. Go for it!
