I would be getting Teixeira in this trade (he would give me his catcher, either Napoli or Mathis- which one would I want btw?). My initial reaction is that I shouldn't do it, but I'm not really sure and would love any feedback. I'm in a 16-team H2H league. If I did get him, I feel like I would dominate HRs, RBI, and AVG and obviously lose out on steals w/out Granderson. Here is my offense:

C- Matt Wieters
1B- Albert Pujols
2B- Chase Utley
3B- Ryan Zimmerman
SS- Alexei Ramirez
OF- Curtis Granderson
OF- Jay Bruce
OF- Corey Hart
Util- Delmon Young
Util- Dexter Fowler
Bench- Matt LaPorta

It's too much for Tex for your team. You shouldn't do it.

Hmm...cuz some guy on Fantasy Baseball Cafe just told that I should absolutely do it. Now I'm conflicted.

Your bats look fine and I think it would be overkill. Plus you'd be dealing with the Angels' catcher b u l l s h i t. Keep it simple.

Seriously? Fantasy Baseball Cafe sounds like a place where your lady friend would get her fantasy advice from 14 year old kids. Listen to Grey and you will be all set. Your dog will stop pissing on the rug, your crappy neighbors will move away, the car door stops sticking, your hair gets thicker, you grow taller and you just might get that promotion you've been angling for... It worked for me, it can work for you too!

Granderson is the only thing your OF has going for it right now....I'm not sold on Hart...maybe if you were GETTING an upgrade in your OF instead of Downgrading it...Hart is a bum imo...of course maybe I'm just salty after owning him most of last year.
