I made this trade yesterday in a 15 team, NL-only league. This morning there was some strong objection to the deal from the peanut gallery.
Some of the basic circumstances (without giving my whole roster as a case study) is that after this deal, I'm left with Jimenez, Duke and a returning Ted Lily in my rotation. My offense in this league is horrible, having lost Berkman until this week and struggling with runs, homers, RBIs and steals from top to bottom.
I concede that, in the moment, I'm giving away a lot of pitching and a fairly hot Polonco. Does anyone out there feel like I got totally fleeced on this trade?
