I just got Votto and G. Floyd for BJ Upton / K. Gregg / C. Buchholz. You like it? I do, but I like to get an experts opinion. Also, should I just drop Floyd or do you think he'll recover? I have read many things suggesting that he should, but I can't remember when that was.

Trade's fine for you. Floyd should be better, but he looks lost right now. I wouldn't start him until I saw two good starts from him.

Hmmmm. I liked this trade more before Buchholz threw a complete game shutout last night. Did I give up an ace in the making? Tell me he's going to fold under pressure in the big bad AL east, right? He did only strike out 2 batters... Either way, thanks for the feedback. My guess is Gregg is not closing within a month, Buchholz performs stays hot a little while then dips, and Upton I don't care about because I hate him. I've drafted him in 07, 08, and 10, and I will never, ever, do that again. Remember when he had second base eligibility though? That was awesome.

You got the best player in the deal and Buccholz is probably the only valuable asset you gave up. (BJ is overrated)

Good deal for you.
