I know Ubaldo's been dead cold and Lester is my best pitcher, but I still think Ubaldo will still contend for cy young in spite of his JULY and will only be slightly worse than Lester the rest of the way from here on out. Hunter is old, I'm afraid he'll go on the DL for a noncontending team. What do you think? Should I do it?
p.s. My pitching staff is super thin: Lester, B. Anderson, C. Lewis, D. Hudson, Ted Lilly, Cueto
If I'm the other guy I turn this down without much thought, hanley is still a top 3 overall pick and ubaldo's number for the year are better than lesters (although I personally would rather have lester). I really see no reason for this guy to accept this trade.
Even if you call Lester and Jimenez a wash I would never ever trade Hanley for Hunter and Drew.
