Trade proposed to me:
I get Ellsbury and J. Niese
Give Granderson and Glen Perkins
I'm loaded at RP so losing Perkins wouldn't hurt me at all. My SP are Zimmerman, C. Lee, J. Hellickson, I. Kennedy, J. Garcia, K. Kendrick. Start 5, weekly changes.
I could use the SP depth since Garcia has some questions coming into the year but do you see Ellsbury vs Grandy as an upgrade or downgrade. I know both have concerns about them.
if i really needed starting pitching in a standard 5x5, i like the deal.
what are your cats?
Not a downgrade, both will provide you with something different. If you need power, then Granderson is your guy, if you need stolen bases and runs, Ellsbury's your guy. I prefer the Ellsbury and Niese side so would pull the trigger provided you have power bats in your lineup.
I agree with Jason here, go for it!
