I like the Miggy & Holliday side. Miggy/Wright are Bruce/Headley are pretty close. But I'd rather have Holliday/Maddux than Bradley/Haren. Bradley is unreliable because of his injury history (and Holliday's much better to begin with), and I don't like Haren's history post all-star break. Stick w/ what you got - you'll be better off from here on out...

I agree with peter...Holliday's side is better...also note that Haren trends to be a first half pitcher... last year his era after the all star break was not impressive at all. The Holliday side also has two Elite players in Holliday and Cabrera...The other side has Wright...and....thats...it...

This is just another case of thinking Jay Bruce is wayyyy better than he really is. Don't fall into the trap... Jay Bruce is an average outfielder! Very Average! 2 years from now, he might become an elite outfielder (like Holliday) but not this season. He will disappoint many people simply because we all put him on a pedistool because of his hot start. This trade is in favor of the Holliday side by a lot!

OK, i just recieved another one.

I get
David Wright, Todd Helton, Mike Aviles(i've got Peralta at SS) and Dan Haren

I give up
Miggy Cabrera, Adrian Gonzalez, Carlos Gomez and Ervin Santana

I countered with the same deal with Maddux instead of Ervin.##

Thoughts???

Good counter-offer. I don't think the original offer would have been worth it.
