Would you rather have David Ortiz and Lorenzo Cain, or Victor Martinez and Bryce Harper?  I traded for Ortiz and Cain.

You got taken for a ride.

Here's why.

Ortiz and VMART are a push.

SO you essentially dealt Harper for Cain.

Sure Harper is struggling now but he'll finish with much better numbers than Cain.

If this was a re-draft RIGHT NOW, people would still take Harper well-before Cain. There is a reason for that.

There is no way that Ortiz and VMart are a push. Ortiz is 10 times better with his HRS AND RBIS. If anything, it is Ortiz vs. Harper, and Cain vs. VMART. Who is going to hit more home runs, get more RBIS, and steal more bases? Slight advantage to Ortiz and Cain, if Papi keeps up his pace.

Ortiz is far better than V-Mart...

Assuming the scoring is similar to Draft Kings, you killed it and it's not even close.  Harper/Vmart are nowhere near Ortiz/Cain on a per game basis.  I hope the "Ortiz and Vmart are a push" comment was a joke.
