I dont' think you have enough pitching as it is.....I'd rather see you add Lopez in there, or get an upside starter (Hughes, Cecil, etc.), along with Crawford in return.

I'm pretty stuck on Felipe b/c he is eligible for every position except catcher. He allows me to not have to carry backups at 2b, SS, 3b unless I want to. My big thing is to just stock pile as much talent regardless of position (as long as I'm fielding players at each spot). Lopez gives me a lot of flexibility to do that.

I am currently working on acquiring Kershaw, Cain, and Nolasco (different trades, not one big one). I'm also trying to work on getting Beckett and would like to go after Lincecum (Granderson and Price for him maybe?)

So if it wasn't for the fact that I need pitching (just considering value) would this be a good trade for me to make? I feel like it might be.

I'd avoid Nolasco - risky pitchers list...
