I was offered this trade and wanted your opinions:
I trade: SP Mike Mussina + OF Geoff Jenkins
I get: SP Jason Schmidt + OF Richard Hidalgo
I just read this morning that Schmidt is scheduled to make his first start April 16th vs LA if an 80 pitch outing goes well in Single A on Saturday. If he has any problems he would be pushed back to April 21 vs SD.
Mussina has pitched like crap his first 2 starts. I know he'll improve and put up good stats, but I hate him and refuse to root for him, therefore, I want to trade him and get him off my team. Problem is, with two bad starts no one will give me fair value for him and I'd hate to wait until he turns it around to trade him.
What do you think?
