Can I get you guys' opinion on whether or not I should offer this trade?

Should I offer Jason Kubel and Kevin Youkilis for Bryce Harper and Edwin Encarnacion? Or am I setting myself up to be screwed there?
Why would the person with Bryce and Edwin accept that?

Because Youkilis is coming off the DL and Kubel's much more consistent than Encarnacion.

Geeze Allen Craig....

with him going on the DL today, that marks Craig, Desmond Jennings, David Robertson, and Vance Worley all going on the DL for me during the past 7-10 days. And that's on top of Carlos Beltran not playing the last 4 days.

Yeah, I'm the one who would be getting LaHair. It's a smart deal for him because obviously LaHair can only regress at this point and my offense has been my main struggle, but I'm fading fast and afraid of falling behind a lot.

Lance Lynn is good. It tough though. I just think LaHair will regress. How's Johnson been doing lately?

This trade just got vetoed in my league: Uggla, Hanrahan and Dale Thayer for Kershaw. This league is so stupid sometimes.

Well no trade should get vetoed unless there's collusion, but that is a pretty bad trade haha.

No way. One-sided or not, that's not a trade you veto. I doubt there's any sort of collusion when the team that's higher in the standings is giving up Kershaw.

That's who's giving him up? Holy shit. As long as there is no collusion then I'd be fine with it.

Need to replace Lucroy, think it's a better idea to deal for Saltalamacchia or pick up Doumit from FA?

Also, what do you think is Dee Gordon's value in a trade right now? I've had him sitting on my bench almost all season.

I'd just pick up Doumit. I don't think theres much difference between them.

As far as Gordon, his value is pretty low right now. He's hitting at the bottom of a pretty bad order and isn't getting on base enough to run
