C- Ryan Doumit 1B - Miguel Cabrera 2B - Chase Utley SS - Alexei Ramirez 3B - Chone Figgins OF - Nick Markakis, Adam Lind, B. Abreu, B. Hawpe C. Beltran DL Util- B. Zobrist, Manny Ramirez, Carlos Gonzalez

Verlander is the prime player here, Reynolds is a great player, but I doubt we see steals a gain and a avergae above .260 but is still worth having, and Bucholz is the pitcher i would want, the plus side is that 3B has more scarcity than OF and you culd find a Carlos Gonzalez clone on the waivers pretty easily (in fact that's how Carlos Gonzalez was last year)
Yes, this is a great deal for you. You get the best pitcher in the deal, in Verlander, and you also get a much needed 3B upgrade! Even though Reynolds is a .BA killer, you want your corner infield spots to be manned by power bats. Speed thrills but power is the source of fantasy glory!
As for the other pitcher to receive in this deal...Take Buchholz! While I think Dice-K bounces back in a positive way this season, Buchholz is younger and has a much higher ceiling!
I'd take that deal but only if you take Clay over Dice-K.
To answer your second question, I'd rather have Nolasco+Hamels over Verlander+Buccholz, but getting Reynolds for CarGo more than makes up for the slight downgrade in pitching. You are in a shallow league, which favors elite talent over depth, and you're getting the best pitcher out of the 4 in the deal. Also, you have so many other good pitchers that trading two good SP's for a great SP is worth it. Great deal for you.
