I would not do that deal. Hamels is going to be very good this year. Not quite Lester, but Lester does not equal Hamels + Gallardo. And then to throw Walden in, no way. And I don't like Danks at all, especially with that bullpen.

I would pick up Morrow and think about dropping Francisco. You have plenty of saves it looks like.

Tough call, in my opinion. I'd probably lean 60/40 in favor of NOT doing the trade. Any thoughts on my post? viewtopic.php?t=427360

Lester is good, but his value should be lower, especially now. I'm about 80/20 against it. You could do better.

Don't do it, I like Hamels + Galladro better then Lester and Danks. And I agree with the first reply drop a closer, because you have plenty of save opportunities already and pickup Morrow.
