I thought I had Cain/Lee/3rd Round for Kinsler/Cargo/10th Round in the bag.

Well, now the other guy doesnt want to give Cargo, but rather Crawford. I know Crawford's elbow is about to explode, and the Sox offense is so-so at the moment.

Is Crawford a worthy sub for Cargo?

I think you answered your own question.

There's a big step down from Cargo to Crawford these days. I wouldn't play Crawford over any of your current starters. Reconfigure the counteroffer to target Kinsler only, or take out one of your top-line pitchers (Cain) from the deal for either Fiers or Buchholz.

Yep, so I said I wasnt a fan of Crawford and he countered with this...


Cain/3Rd Round for Kinsler/Mauer/10th Round


I can keep Lee and flip him to another guy who proposed Lee for Uggla earlier today. Lee is mediocre right now and Uggla could be poised to take off for ROS.

Why are you in such a hurry to blow up your pitching staff? I guess you're getting decent value in that trade, but I'm not sure it makes your team better.

Uggla is a decent buy low target, but I wouldn't give up a starter of Lee's caliber to get him...

I am +40IP on my innings limit, so I am trying to get back under and skipping non-favorable starts. Been successful at streaming, so I figure why not trade some arms.

Ill still have Wainwright/Fiers/Buchholz/Hudson. All of which are more than capable. Lee has been a rollercoaster all years and wont help me as I am trying to nail down some quality starts.

Lacking in H/R/BB right now. Kinsler def. helps me there, Mauer is hitting for good AVG as well. Uggla could give me a power boost rather than me sitting Lee a bunch. Im just questionable on Mauer from a production standpoint.
