I was going to trade him for a shortstop so I could upgrade there and then get rid of valentin. I currently have Orlando Cabrera and Jose Valentin at short stop but I wanted to trade vazquez for either Jeter (dreaming) or Nomar. Do you think I could pull off vazquez for nomar and would it be worth it?
I was going to replace Vazquez by dropping valentin to get wolf, so the net result would be:
In - Nomar, Wolf
Out - Valentin, Vazquez
Is that a good idea? I would still have oswalt, pedro, colon, lieber and wolf for my starting pitchers.
Also, how big of an upgrade is lo duca over hall or fick? Because I think I could get him.
Do you think Nunez is going to be any good? He is going ok so far but it might not last. Though now that I think about it, if I do trade vazquez I will get nunez instead, because I think my starters are good enough, and there's a 1250 innings pitched limit anyway.
If you can get Nomar (or, theoretically, Jeter) for Vazquez, I'd go for it. Try adding Cabrera to the deal to improve your chances - I don't think most folks would agree to a one-for-one.
I don't think you need to pursue LoDuca, though. A Hall/Fick combo is pretty good already.
I honestly don't know about Nunez. He'll get the chance to show his stuff now, but it remains to be seen if he has a closer's makeup. Looper, though ineffective so far, can't be completely ruled out yet, and Neal is waiting in the wings. Still, any player who'll get saves is worthwhile - just don't expect too much too quickly.
