My current starters are:

J. Moyer
J. Pineiro
F. Garcia
B. Myers
E. Milton

Offer on the table of SP Mike Mussina + SP Joel Pineiro for SP Javier Vazquez and SP Wade Miller.

The way I look at it, I pick up a lot of K's in the deal as both of the pitchers I would be getting had more K's than the pitchers I'm giving up. Otherwise, they are all pretty similar stat-wise. It would allow me to lose one of my 3 Mariner staters, which is a good thing, IMO. I think I do pick up more injury risk with Vazquez and Miller, but hey, gotta gamble sometime...

if you think Garcia can reclaim his past form, do the trade.

I wouldn't do this trade. Vasquez and Miller are much better in the second half of the season than the first -- check their pre- and post-All-Star Game splits.

If you wait until June, you can probably acquire them for a lot less.
