Nice roster!

I would drop Hafner. If you like Hafner, I would work out a trade for Lowrie and get an arm in return, but Lowrie and his multiposition eligibility might be too much to lose.

Thanks. Too bad I dropped Liriano yesterday before his start. :(

I am trying to work out a trade: Kuroda/Lowrie for S. Marcum (He also has R. Romero and C. Carpenter, should I ask for less?)

Any other people I should package in a trade?

Dooooooood.... :-P !+) :-C :-[ You dropped Liriano...

Ok, I would try for one of the three. I like Romero as opposed to Marcum, but if he gives up Marcum, you make out pretty good selling high on Lowrie.

And I think you make out nicely clearing up space on your bench also. :-)

I don't regret dropping Liriano at all. He got LUCKY!

123 Pitches (less than 50% strikes)
6 Walks
2 Strikeouts
AGAINST THE WORST HITTING TEAM IN BASEBALL!

Yes he went 9 innings and of course he is good enough to lower his 9.3 ERA but he isn't going to play like he did last year. Also, I picked up M. Garza who is 2nd in MLB with K's and looking pretty good. It looked like a great move at the time. Still looks good.

Whats the deal with Romero? I must be missing something. You'd take Romero even though he is playing for the Jays?

I'd drop Hafner. He seems beat up and I think he has a shady recent heath history as is.

Romero has decent stuff and is a lefty succeeding in the AL East.

I like the Jays offense as well as their bullpen, so it's a good match.

Remember, Marcum came from the Jays originally, and he pitches in the NL Central for the Brew Crew with just as much offense supporting him along with a nice bullpen as well.
