In a keeper, where I wouldn't be keeping either hughes or bruce and would not likely keep Verlander either. However, I am playing for this year, currently in 3rd in a head to head should I offer hughes AND bruce for verlander? 10 keepers (best guess has *)
i'd fairly easily accept that offer. your OF isn't incredibly deep after Dunn, but i'm sure there are other options out there to replace Bruce. I think the loss would be worth it to upgrade at SP. i just can't stand owning Yankee pitchers in that stadium. the team wins games, and that's always a huge plus, but Hughes ERA and WHIP are finally coming up to where they should be. I think that trade will not only make your team better this year, but i'd probably consider keeping Verlander over Andrus. that would give you a killer rotation next year.
