Let me put it this way, would you trade Leake and Alonso for Lee?
Leake and Wood profile as similar pitchers. Wood throws harder, has 5 pitches and is LH. So doesn't that make him more valuable than a soft tossing righty with the same make up?
This board would go into meltdown status if that deal was made.
I would personally keep Wood out of any discussion... I would flip any call about Wood towards Maloney and add a third part LOOOONG before I would ever add Wood...
