    More trade advice needed...

    Here is my current pitching staff:

    SP Mike Mussina, NYY
    SP Jamie Moyer, SEA
    SP Joel Pineiro, SEA
    SP Freddy Garcia, SEA
    SP Brett Myers, PHI
    SP Adam Eaton, SD

    RP Octavio Dotel, HOU
    RP Arthur Rhodes, OAK
    RP Armando Benitez, FLA

    DL A.J. Burnett, FLA
    DL Jon Lieber NYY

    I'm trying to upgrade my starting pitching staff. Two deals I'm currently thinking about:

    Trade 1: I send SP Joel Pineiro and RP Arthur Rhodes for SP Brandon Webb and RP Joe Nathan. IMO, good trade for me. If Nathan doesn't work out I hope there's a closer available that I can grab via FA when the time comes. I still have Dotel and Benitez to grab the majority of the saves. Pineiro - Webb, I think is an upgrade...

    Trade 2: I send SP Joel Pineiro and SP Brett Myers for SP C.C. Sabathia and SP Kip Wells. This one I'm not so sure about. This may not be a very good trade the more I think about it, but Sabathia has been improving and Wells has been pretty tough as well. I may lose some wins overall, but K's should increase a little.

    I'm also trying to figure out a way to get SP Roger Clemens. Owner won't do Pineiro straight up for Clemens, and I'm not sure what else to add to the trade. Was thinking Pineiro + Myers for Clemens, but that seems to be overpaying a little. Thoughts?

    Re: More trade advice needed...

    I would do trade #1. I think Webb is going to have an outstanding year, plus the offense behind him is much better than Pineiro's. Rhodes for Nathan is a bit of a step down, but I think that is more than offset by Pineiro for Webb. Plus, I think Nathan will get plenty of save opportunites, mostly because there isn't anyone in that bullpen that will challenge him.

    I don't know if I'd try to get Clemens at that price. Despite his great first outing I think he'll come back to earth at some point, and that ballpark scares me.
