I think pitchers are the most difficult to predict. I personalkly wouldn't do this trade. Granderson if healthy should put up comprable or better numbers than Bruce, especially in that lineup. Lincecum and Halladay should be amost a wash and is 5 years younger.

Here's mine:

Personally that trade is a definite yes for me. I'm much more confident in Halladay putting up solid numbers than I am Lincecum. I know the whole keeper thing plays a role here, as Halladay is older, but I still think he's got at least 2 or 3 Cy Young caliber years left in him. Plus Lincecum's velocity has been dropping consistently, which is kind of concerning. Bruce >> Granderson IMO. Vazquez is really just a throw in there anyway.

I'd take this deal easily. Lincecum for Halladay straight up is even, but getting Bruce on the side for relatively cheap is the big reason to do this deal.

I would say do, you are getting the two best players in that deal...Curtis is on the decline, Lincecum showed his chink in the armor last August, and Javier is replacement level...
