    Trade I just made.

    I trade: Hideki Matsui, Chien Ming Wang, Matt Morris

    for

    Mike Lowell, Johnny Damon

    My team now is:

    Russell Martin
    Lance Berkman
    Placido Polanco
    Brendan Harris
    Aramis Ramirez
    Carl Crawford
    Alex Rios
    Johnny Damon
    Derrek Lee
    Mike Lowell

    Bench: Frank Thomas, Delmon Young, Felipe Lopez

    Pitching:
    Felix Hernandez
    Chris Capuano
    Chris Young
    Derek Lowe
    Jorge De La Rosa
    Doug Davis
    Mark Hendrickson
    Claudio Vargas
    Joakim Soria
    Justin Duchscherer

    DL: Jason Jennings, Jason Bergmann

    I'm gonna try to trade spare parts in The Big Hurt and Delmon or Felipe for some other decent pitchers, where I'm lacking the most.

    What do you guys think?

    Yeah, that's a great trade. I've practically been begging for Johnny Damon in my league.

    Re: Trade I just made.

    To add on, what do you guys think about making a deal that sends Rios and Frank Thomas away for CC Sabathia?

    So I'm still looking to pick up a solid pitcher without having to give up an arm and a leg.

    Not bad..............I think wang is terrible personally, and Morris isn't much better, so anything you can get for either is a personal victory. Damon and Matsui are a coinflip, with the winner being based on need.......with CC and Rios your only real speed threats, Damon's 25 or so sb's will help you a lot.

    As for the last part, I think NOOOOOOOO. Delmon is just starting to heat up, but is still sitting on low value for what he could do. Hang on tight and trade later if you want. I'd prob keep him, and trade Rios instead, who will give you greater return. Prob for an infielder with speed.

    Re: Trade I just made.

    Need a quick opinion...

    Would you do:

    Carl Crawford and Felipe Lopez

    for

    Shane Victorino, Tom Gorzelanny, Oliver Perez, Kelvim Escobar, Takashi Saito

    I really feel like the team needs the pitching, and that would give it a shot in the arm, but I'm having a hard time thinking about parting with crawford.

    Re: Trade I just made.

    I would not do that. Would that trade really be worth dropping players?

    It's not. I didn't do it, but my pitching is still awful.

    Target a buy low guy or two..............Dave Bush, or even James Shields, who seems to be undervalued.
