    Get a load of my blockbuster Yahoo trade

    So, for smiles and grins, I thought I'd go for broke and offer up a crazy blockbuster trade.

    For some odd reason, it was accepted, and none of the other owners vetoed it. Thoughts?

    I gave up:

    Miguel Cabrera
    Giancarlo Stanton
    Zack Greinke
    J.J. Hardy
    Nate Jones

    I received:

    Jose Fernandez
    Hanley Ramirez
    Josh Donaldson
    Christian Yelich
    Joe Nathan

    Anyone else involved in this type of deal?

    I think so too, unless Miggy or Giancarlo go down. However, if you look at ADP/2014 projections, it's not as far off as you might think. When the league is free, you can go for broke. It's basically a 5 for 4 trade since Nate Jones is irrelevant at this point.

    I'm with the rest. I'd rather have Miggy. I'm on the side if the fence that doesn't see yelich developing power or speed though
    I have no collecting focus, right now.

    I just wanted to shake things up, that's all. This is a free league, so there's nothing at stake.

    I still think as a group, the difference won't be as much as you think. I'll post periodic updates in my 1,000th Post Contest thread to see how this trade actually panned out.

    I think it depends. In keeper league, not a terrible deal. You never know which prospects are going to come around or not, but Fernandez looks great, so I guess it depends if Yelich will come around.

    In one year league, you'll really need Donaldson to put up AT or BETTER THAN last years numbers, and you'll need a full healthy and productive season from Hanley for this deal to be worth it. And like you said, Jones is not really a factor, and I personally think Stanton is overrated as a fantasy commodity based on his position, so its really not too bad a deal for a free league.

    As with most deals, a good deal should be determined based on your team needs. Depends on scoring, positional needs, keeper vs 1 year league, etc. You never know how the season will play out until it does, but until it does, there's still a chance you can come out on top in this one.

    In a money league I would agree with you, but in a free league (as Chris stated this is), doubt there is much of a care.

    Money is irrelevant, the point of a league is to win. That's the reason people play fantasy baseball.

    If some jackass pulled this garbage in one of my leagues he'd be kicked out immediately.

    I think you will get the better end of this deal actually. Stanton can't stay healthy. Fernandez > Greinke across the board (except maybe wins because of offense). Cabrera will not see as many decent pitches without Fielder IMO, and Donaldson is quietly a beast. Best third baseman in baseball last year i believe (in WAR). Hanley has injury issues too, but I think he is more of a safe bet than Stanton with the surrounding team to produce when healthy. Nathan should be solid, although first outing wasn't great. Don't know much about Yelich or Nate Jones. If Hanley stays healthy, I think you win big time, but if not I think Hardy will put the other guy over the top.

    OK Will...........however, read the first post............."For some odd reason, it was accepted, and none of the other owners vetoed it. Thoughts?"

    Again, highly doubt there is much of a care in this case.....or.....the others in the league saw the trade as not overly lopsided.
    If one is going strickly off of name recognition, then yes, lopsided.
    However if one is going off of potential for this season, then not so much.
