Instead of offering Beckett for another SP, if you want to get rid of him, try to get hitting. Your pitching looks great, however. ... p?t=194996

Beckett is hot right now, and his value might not be any higher, so you might want to try and move him before the inevitable blister or some other injury pops up and puts him on the DL.

For #1, I'd move RJ. I know you just traded for him, but if you wait for one more win, you could get a nice bat for him better than you had before the trade. I think RJ is gonna have some problems later in the year. For #2, definitely Encarnacion if he's available. You don't necessarily need him though and I don't care much for the other FA's. For #3, like I said with RJ, trade him for a buy low guy like Manny or Bay.

Thanks for your help with my question.

1. I like your trade from earlier this season. Out of these three, I'd try to move Beckett. Like SkeetNation said, he will likely have problems of some sort later this season, and his value may be peaking right now. Try to sell high.

2. None of the free agents you list are really jumping out at me. Sanders is a solid player. Repko looks like a good player, but playing time may be an issue.

Take it easy.

I would try and sell Josh Beckett while he's on fire right now.
His last start however, wasn't so spectacular, which may be a sign of things to come.
Try and land some power OF for Beckett.
Now would be the worst time to sell RJ.
