Also, you could trade one of them to get a mid range pitcher (like lackey) and an upgrade at 3B or SS. I just feel there is no reason to own both berkman and fielder when you have a perfectly capable replacement on your bench and weak pitchers after your top 2.
Thats exacley what I planned on doing. The ironic thing is that I had a deal trading fielder for Peavy and weiters on the table. I posted it up here and the overwhelming majority said I was crazy so I turned the offer down based on the opinions on the trade forum here. That owner then traded Peavy for Tex..(Crazy, I know) so that deal is now off the table.
Im in a league where owners put a huge emphasis on starting pitching. Right now the best offer that I have is Fielder for billingsley and chris B. Young. Not loving that one.
