However, Hirsh is easily a Top 40 overall prospect and he'll have Clemens to mentor him (Hirsh will certainly be up by September, and, also, Clemens is staying in a role with the team after he retires). If you can get Hirsh reasonably, go for it.
So would you try getting Pelfrey (and a small amount of league money) instead of Hirsh by throwing in Hamels (who I'm down on)?
My overall deal right now is:
I get Jose Lopez, Eric Chavez and Hirsh
I give M Giles, Chipper and Clemens.
Keep in mind that part of the reason I like the deal is due to contract issues, which I won't boar you with. But I do get the better end of the contracts as Giles and Chipper will be gone next year anyways. And since I'm out of the playoff hunt, Clemens is nothing but a bargaining chip.
