I wouldn't do the deal. Buchholz is a likely candidate for regression and Alvarez's reward is a good one, but I just don't see the combo of Buchholz/Alvarez being safer now as Lester, a Cy Young candidate.

Also, you might get some nice value out of EE, who can give you Alvarez-like power minus the average upside.

I think I would rather have Lester than the duo. You don't need a 3B and while Alvarez as a util should be pretty solid, I think your SP would take a big hit.

No way. Lester's a stud and you've got 3B covered with another stud.

Why do you think this is a good deal?

If you had one more top notch starter I'd give you the ok for this. But Pedro might eventually be a 1b, which hurts his value a bit.

clay bucholz and pedro alavarez
That is a good pair, if you didn't have a 3b or had noe more stud starter I'd do it but since you don't on either count
