Weaver for Liriano and Utley

I was just offered Jared Weaver for Liriano and Utley... My team is below:

It's a huge risk for both of us. On one hand, Liriano could continue to pitch like he has his last 3 starts for the rest of the season and Utley could be, well... Utley. On the other, I get a much needed top 5 starter in a league where finding good pitching is tricky.

Anyway, I wanted to know your thoughts.

Eh?

Anyone want to be brave and critique this trade?

I think I would do that trade....if you can manage Hill's mediocrity for the rest of the season, that is. Utley's ceiling is probably only 15 HRs, and Liriano has been inconsistent. Check Grey's projections at the start of the season for Utley...I don't think they've changed since Utley hasn't played at all yet. I would still sell high on Liriano, especially if you didn't following his no-hitter.

Thanks... I already accepted it and there are league members who are pissed off at me for this. Not sure what the big deal is, because it's not exactly a no-brainer.
