I'm thinking of offering this trade. I have Holliday, and both are slumping, but I see Teix pulling out of it better than Holliday. Agree/disagree? Should I offer the trade straight up, or try something else? I could move M-Cab to 3rd and Chipper to IF. He's weak at LF, and has Howard at 1B.
2nd question: Chris Young (SP) is on the waiver wire. I have #1 WP. Do I use it to claim him?

most people understand that tex is always a slow starter. he gets progressively better as the season goes on, just look at his stats. i have tex, and i drafted him knowing that... so no i dont think you can get him for holliday, whos stats are not going to match up with his time at coors field. if he accepts, you win tho! good luck.
