    Also, I just executed a trade for like the first time in 8 years of fantasy sports. I can never seem to pull trades off in fantasy baseball or football because everyone always wants to get the best of it.

    I traded SS JJ Hardy from Baltimore in exchange for SS Dee Gordon from LA. I already have Jose Bautista, Jay Bruce and a couple other guys who hit for power - so I was willing to trade some power for speed. JJ Hardy is currently ranked slightly higher than Gordon, and projected to finish slightly better, but I have zero stolen base guys on my team - so I figured the speed was more valuable than the power I'm giving up.

    Any thoughts?

    That's a decent looking trade for you. Was your trade partner that desparate for power? Otherwise, I like how it turned out for you.

    I wasn't so much embarrassed as I was surprised. Friday I was up 7-3 or something, and then bam!

    Sounds like a good trade. Better to have someone help you get some SBs every week rather than just giving up that point.

    Yep - he has Michael Morse on the DL and is sort of panicking about his power. My team is really only missing a speed/stolen bases dude at the moment, so in theory it should work out for both of us. I just hope Gordon can raise his average a bit.

    I haven't paid much attention to Gordon yet. What's his OBP? Does he have good enough plate discipline where even if his average is .260 or .270, he's still a threat for SBs and Rs?

    He only has a .263 OBP this season, and is hitting below the Mendoza line... But he has the most steals and most steal attempts since September 1st last year - and he was closer to .300 and .325 last year, so I think he will only improve as the year goes on. And Mattingly seems committed to him, so they'll give him a lot of slack to work through any slumps.
