That's pretty intriguing. I am not big on Schafer but he does juice so the power numbers could develop. There's a lot of debate about his potential because he's playing so well right now. Cliff Lee is an average to below average pitcher for roster-able guys in 5x5 which means he's still useful. The $ thing to would put me over the edge- I'd probably pull the trigger as much as I dislike Lee because he's decent.

Ugh... You know I hate Lee and you give me this trade that makes perfect sense to trade for him. Why do you do this, Hebrew? Schafer and Stewart have more future value, but your team needs Lee now -- Or at least some starter. If you think you can find better than Lee, I'd look for it, but I don't mind this trade for you.

this owner is VERY impatient and is loaded with pitching (Kazmir, Peavy, Lee, Lincecum, Zambrano)

What if I threw in Adam Lind ($3 keeper) along with Stewart and Schafer and asked for Lincecum, who cannot be kept after this season?

go for it?

I love that trade for you, just not sure if he'd do it.

Cust - 30 HRs and awful average. FraGu - 15/15 and .265 average.

Looks strong, but I have to think you can do better than Aviles, Daniel Murphy and Francisco.
