I need a little help. I've been offered a trade, but not sure if i should do it.

I'd trade Vlad Guerrero for Manny Ramirez and Luis Gonzalez.

I hate the idea of trading Vlad, but i need depth in the OF.

These things are tough to give an answer on when you don't know who's available through waiver/FA.

There's not much out there. I think the bestOF in waivers is Randy Winn or Reggie Sanders.

Are any of Jason Bay, Cliff Floyd or Torii Hunter available?

I've got Bay and have him tagged for 35 HR a .300 average and he might crack 100 RBI batting fourth.

If Floyd stays healthy, he can give you 25-30 HR .285 average and 85+ RBI batting behind Beltran.

Hunter is a pretty well known commodity that's not spectacular but respectable-plus he's a stolen base threat.

I think trading Vlad is just a big mistake. He's gonna have another monster year and he's solid in every category.

Cliff is still out there. I hate the idea of trading Vlad too. But ManRam should have a monster year too. But i do already have Ortiz and Damon, i hate the idea having so many players from the Sox. :D

Bay and Hunter shouldn't be on ANY waiver wire.

I wouldn't do that Vlad for Manny & Gonzo deal. It's a pretty fair offer, I just wouldn't do it.
