If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.

I don't know why you would want to "Give Longo away..." Kershaw is awesome. I don't know what your team looks like before and after. I'd lean toward no... because ADT. And because I'd rather have Nol, EJack, and/or Cueto then Beckett or Bailey. (I guess Beckett is a touch better than Nolasco)

You're giving away the best player in the trade in Longo and you don't need Kershaw with the pitchers you already have. Pedro Alvarez is very good but I don't see how this necessarily helps you other than it being a knee-jerk reaction to Longo's injury.

Philosophical question: If Longo weren't hurt right now and playing, would you think about this trade? If that answer is no, then the answer should be no now.

Thanks guys. Id love to have kershaw and gallardo. Together. What if longo takes a while to hit whenhe comes back, tampa as good anymore. Do these injuries persist all season?

My team is in the sig btw, my rotation would be: beckett, kershaw, gallardo, drabek, beachy, gio, scherzer, with morrow in the wings

Frigging longo. Shoulda taken texeiera instead!

Still a no for me. Your pitching looks strong enough.

It's more or less a Kershaw for Longo deal. As much as i love Kershaw (my Cy pick) and have him in both leagues, id rather have the bat. I usually sell pitching (like Kershaw) for bats (like Longoria) at this point in the season. It's funny how you can get guys like Kershaw in the 4th rd and trade for 1st Rd bats....

so, dont go backwards, your pitching is strong enough, and Longo will be fine. No, TB is not as strong this year but Longo will get his....
