O.K. New information.
One of the guys in our league really needs starting pitching help. He was offered Rafael Palmeiro to me for Jason Schmidt. Should I do this trade?
That leaves my starters as Unit, Prior, Vazquez, Ramon Ortiz, Lilly and Benson.
Best starters in F.A are: Brandon Duckworth (inj), Kenny Rogers, Cory Lidle, Brett Tomko, Joe Mays, Shane Reynolds, Brett Myers, John Patterson, Horacio Ramirez, and Mickey Callaway.
Of those, Rogers, Myers, and Patterson are most intriguing to me, but don't know if they would come anywhere close to what Schmidt will give me. Not sure what I should do.
Ideally, I'd like to possibly make a Schmidt / Alfonzo for Palmeiro and Torii Hunter deal, but not sure if he'd go for that. He needs a third baseman, his starter at 3B is Tony Batista, so it might work...just not sure if that is a good move for me. If I did make this trade or the Schmidt for Palmeiro trade straight up...I'd probably drop Carlos Lee for another pitcher....or should I keep two hitters on the bench and no pitchers on the bench? I don't know why I'm having problems with this..I'm usually good at making trades and roster decisions, but I need help here. Please give me your advice.
