In my Yahoo! public fantasy league, I am getting absolutely verbally mauled for my proposed trade with another member.
Frenchy's Fries (me) offers: Ryan Zimmerman & Jason Bay
Flash n bash (him): David Wright
I realize it is a fairly significant downgrade at 3rd for him but I can actually see Zimm doing pretty well this year especially with Dunn batting behind him.
Also, he is getting a huge boost to his outfield, which I would say is the 2nd worst in our league. He has Carl Crawford, Brad Hawpe, and Andre Ethier starting with Rick Ankiel on his bench. I am going to be dealing from a position of strength. My outfield currently consists of Josh Hamilton, Jason Bay, Nick Markakis, with Nate Mclouth on my bench.
Now I am not saying it is a completely even trade. I thought the whole point of trades was to come out on top... But is it so bad a trade that I deserve the beating I am getting?
