I think you need to keep Kazmir on your team, Sit tight on your offense. Its only 2 weeks and not time to panic on guys like Berkman. If he lives up to his career averages, just think of what he will start to do soon.
I think you have to take this trade, it's not very often you can get a stud like Sizemore for this cheap. Losing Kazmir sucks as he's your best SP, but Lowe is a solid replacement - and the difference between Sizemore/Lee is more significant than the difference between Kazmir/Lowe.
I would try and get Garza from him if possible too - maybe offer Sizemore, Rivera, Lowe & Garza for Lee, Broxton, Kazmir, and Verlander/Sonnanstine...if he balks at that though, I would accept the trade on the table now.
