If you want a pitcher, make him put a decent no.3 in the deal instead of Kennedy.
I agree. One thing I didnt mention is that Bradley is on my bench, he is in no way expected to give me many meaningful innings unless an injury happens.
My OF consists of McLouth, Kemp, Ichiro (who'd be replaced with Vlad).
Kennedy and Liz can sit on the bench the entire year, I have no real need for them either in this year. This would strictly be a building trade for me for the future, not at all a this year type trade. Now if one of them breaks out that is perfectly fine.
My starting position lineup
C- Kelly Shoppach
1B - Mike Jacobs
2B- Kelly Johnson
3B - Alex Gordon
SS - Jason Bartlett
OF = Kemp
OF - McLouth
OF - Ichiro
DH - Thome
My SP's are
I also have sitting on my bench for SP's
