The Manny owner in my keeper league just dealt his Bedard/Billingsley for Alfonso Soriano/Chris Volstad.

Personally, I think he overpaid just a little, and crippled his pitching in the process...but his offense wasn't going to be the same without an elite bat like Manny.

Makes me wonder what other Manny owners are giving up to replace him in their lineup (for those whose offenses were crippled with the loss of Manny).

He overpaid not because of the value, but because of what it did to his pitching staff. Tough to lose Bills/Bedard in a keeper, those 2 are about as solid as pitchers get and are going to be around 200+ K's on the year. The Soriano owner on the other hand could afford to lose him because he too has a stacked OF/offense. I think it might have hurt the guy more to trade his pitchers than to acquire Soriano, even though Fonzo is a stud. He just could have aimed for someone slightly less (like a Ludwick) and kept Billingsley.

And no, Volstad =/= Bedard. Bedard is a top-10 pitcher when healthy, and right now he's dialed in.

Cause he missed half a season last year with an injury. Coming into 2008, Bedard was the 3rd pitcher being taken in drafts, behind only Johan and Peavy.
