i don't know... scherzer is being tipped to make that extra jump to the elite and that's never a bad thing. who's on waivers? youk, choo, and ichiro are all going to give you a boost in BA, so you can take a risk on someone like pena or reynolds who you know can really boost your power numbers, but might not have been picked up because they have such low averages.
I would do this in a heartbeat. Scherzer has only had four good months in his career, so you don't really know what you are getting...plus I agree, you could use the power more, and Gardner will provide the SB for your team...I'd make the trade.
If this is roto league with IP limit around 1400 IP, I like this trade. once Morrow comes off the DL, your pitching looks strong even without Scherzer, and in a 10 team league you should be able to find good spot start pitching on the wwire to boost IP. If H2H, than its a bit more complicated.
