do vlad straight up for him its jeds breakout year but you do need to figure out ur pitching staff as far as starting pitchers is concerned i think its jurrjenns year 2 finally live up to the hype him and tommy hanson both braves bats are swinging hot see i think ur giving too much jed hasnt shown signs of slumping and has been putting numbers up for a minute in boston now i say no

I honestly think that Jurrjens is basically Garcia's equal. No need to throw in Lowrie as well. I don't know...I'm not sure that you'd obtain an advantage here. I would try to hang onto Jurrjens and get another solid pitcher if possible.

Pass on this one. Jurrjens has been pretty lights out so far, and he's got a solid team behind him. MAYBE I'd do it straight up for Garcia, but Lowrie is definitely worth hanging on to. He'll probably be fairly consistent, and he has a big upside.

I would do it. But i suppose it depends on what bat you can pick up for your bench?
Fwiw, i would replace Colon too.

Jurrgens is a nice SP. But be aware is K/9 is under 6 right now, and only a bit over 6 in career.
His low era right now is because of a 3.2% hr/fb ratio.

Garcia on the other hand, has a K/9 of just under 9, and over 7 in career.
Jurrgens is hot, but i take Garcia because of the K/9 advantage.

Lowrie is ok, but a .392 babip looks nice.
