I would keep Scherzer, but latos has not looked sharp at all this year, I would do that trade.


Also I honestly feel garza is extremely overvalued, if he wanted I would toss in garza as well and pick up a better pitcher off the waiver wire.

i think phillips and scherzer seems like a better trade for cano. is this a keeper league? if so, i would try with phillips and lohse and hold on to scherzer.

on another note, why not try to upgrade your OF with your pitching instead?

Would it be possible to do the dreaded 3 for 1? Lohse, Garza, and Phillips for Cano?

If you want to get in the chatroom and talk about it more in depth, I'm online.

I realize 3 for 1s look bad, but Lohse is super hot right now. Depending on the competency of your opponent, he might consider it.

I don't think I'd do this deal. If it were me, I'd hold onto Phillips and, somewhere down the line, upgrade my OF with my pitching. Your pitching staff could be great, but the only real sure thing you have in your rotation is Cain. Latos, Scherzer, Lohse, Garza, and Santana all have little question marks of their own. Cano is an awesome 2B, but I think Phillips is more than serviceable. Garza has been a strikeout machine since crossing over to the NL and is coming off a huge game earlier in the week. I like Scherzer and Latos and that's why I'd keep them. You don't know what you're getting with Lohse and Zimmermann this year and I'm not so sure the upgrade at second is worth the hassle if a few of your pitchers don't really pan out this year.

Cano for Phillips + Latos/Scherzer/Garza

Definitely go through with this trade... toss up between the three heres my breakdown which you might already know about:

- all three are strikeout machines, all three have a shot at 200Ks
- Scherzer is hot, and has matched up against the top teams already and come out with a win. I would certainly consider keeping him. His team is able to provide him runs which is huge
- I feel as if it should be almost a coin flip between Garza and Latos. Garza i agree is overvalued by a mile, but Latos is back and despite pitching pretty decent he hasn't gotten the games to go his way. It's a really tough choice even for me as I write this, both are good pitchers, but i think its going to come down to you if you want to give up Latos or Garza

What i like to do is talk with the other manager offer him for e.g. Phillips + Latos for Cano + a decent SP in return and try and sell Latos for someone he's not. Like you said, manager might be in panic mode soon so you are saying that you are offering top tier pitcher (which Latos is despite the nay sayers) and would like some kind of pitching back in return!


Help with mine?

Another option might be considering SS included if you don't believe in Cabrera. He likely won't produce like he has so far. Does the team have any depth there?
