I am in a 12 team mix 6X6 (OPB) keeper (keep 4) league. I was offered Josh Rutledge for Carlos Gomez. Do I take this trade?

I also have A. Ramirez coming back next week hopefully, then Granderson mid may. Who should be my starters and who do I drop to make room for these gentleman coming back pre and post trade assuming I take it.  

C: Y. Molina
1B: Goldschmit
2B: J. Kipnis
3B K. Seager
SS: D. Espinosa
OF: R. Braun
OF: A. Gordon
OF: C. Gomez
Util: J. Bautista
BN A. Ramirez
DL: M. Teixeira
DL: C. Granderson

I've had a piece of Gomez several times over the past few years.  I think that Gomez has a lot of potential, but he's hard to swallow when he goes on his hitless streaks.  I think he's playing over his head right now in terms how BA.  I think there's a correction coming.  That being said, Rutledge has less speed, a better average, and a less power...but plays a better position.  It also doesn't look like he's a noticeable upgrade on anyone you have now...unless you want to lose a bit of power and speed for a bit of BA.  I don't see it making much difference though.
 
I don't think I'd do the trade.
 
Also, I think that I'd drop Teixeira completely.  He's taking up space and has been declining for years.  Most of us just pick him up on name recognition, and a hope that he returns to form.  If you drop him, you can move A Ram to the DL, and go to the wire for temporary needs.

I was thinking of replace Espinosa for Rutledge and was planning on dropping Gomez when Granderson came back. Then the next question is who to drop when A. Ramirez come back out of Kipnis or Seager?

I agree with you on Teixeira. I paid $7 for Teixeira, $9 for Granderson with a $260 budget. I was planning to keep them for the next few years at that price. I will have Teixeira as a bench player and just basically spot starting for this year.

To be fair, I have Seager, so I'm biased.  I think at that point, you just go with the hot bat.
