    Good trade???

    I've been talking about a trade with another owner for a long time. Here is the latest offer:

    I trade SP Brad Radke and OF Gary Sheffield for SP Javier Vazquez and 1B/3B/OF Aubrey Huff.

    My current lineup:

    C J.Posada
    1B T. Helton
    2B M. Giles
    3B H.Blalock
    SS D. Jeter
    CI D. Erstad
    MI J. Hairston, Jr
    OF G. Sheffield
    OF B. Giles
    OF M. Cabrera
    OF J. Burnitz
    UTIL M. Mora
    UTIL V.Martinez

    SP F.Garcia
    SP J. Contreras
    SP J. Pineiro
    SP J. Moyer
    SP B. Radke
    SP D. Cabrera
    RP A.Benitez
    RP O.Dotel
    RP B. Lidge
    DL M. Mussina
    DL W. Miller

    If I acquired Vazquez and Huff, they would go in the spots where Radke and Sheffield currently are playing. When Mussina comes off the DL, I'd drop Pineiro. When Miller comes off the DL, I'd drop Moyer or Cabrera if he's struggling. Its been reported that Sheffield is having problems with his shoulder and is beginning to weaken. Huff and Vazquez are known second half performers.

    Thoughts?

    That is a very good trade for you, especially with Sheff's shoulder bothering him.

    Vazquez has pitched poorly recently, but he is just too good to continue to slump the rest of the season. I would do that deal.

    Javier has been having problems on the road, beware of that when pitching him.

    Ok, I've redone my roster because of injuries. Here is what I have now.

    C: Posada
    1B: Helton
    2B: M.Giles
    3B: Blalock
    SS: Jeter
    CI: M.Mora
    MI: J.Hairston,Jr
    OF: Sheffield
    OF: M.Cabrera
    OF: B. Giles
    OF: J. Burnitz
    UTIL: D.Erstad
    UTIL: V.Martinez

    SP: F.Garcia
    SP: J.Wright
    SP: J.Marquis
    SP: J.Contreras
    SP: E.Milton
    SP: B.Radke
    RP: O.Dotel
    RP: B. Lidge
    RP: C.Cordero
    DL: M. Mussina
    DL: A. Benitez



    The Huff/Vazquez deal was put on hold, and then after about a week he nixed it.

    Latest talks: He wants Posada, E.Milton, and Benitez and wants to give me R.Winn, Vazquez and Foulke. I can afford to give up Posada as I have V.Martinez, but would prefer to have Huff over Winn. Milton for Vazquez is good for me, IMO. Benitez and Foulke is somewhat of a downgrade, but I don't think too much. If I can get him to put Huff in instead of Winn, I think this is a good trade for me. Thoughts?
