I play in the basic 5x5 mixed league and my pitching is solid. I've got Halladay, Verlander, Weaver, Price and Tomlin. My offense however is not getting it done. I've got Werth, Choo, Alex Rios and Markakis as my outfielders. I was offered a trade of Verlander for Pence. Pence does have pop and some speed and shit ton of rbis right now. Which I'm not sure he'll keep up being he plays for the Astros, but I was wondering what are your thoughts on this trade. Would you do it? Why or why not?
yea that sounds good pence is the undeniable three hole in houston for alooong time with carlos lee behind him for (what protection can be given from a star ball player trending downward) and micheal bourne leading off and stealing second all the time pence will have lots of rbi oppos all year
id need somthin else a 2 for 1 id do the deal though its a nice start but tell em u need another peice or ull just chill cause sin shoo will hit at some point this year

If not, you've got the pitching staff to part with Verlander if you need a bat bad enough.
I know what you mean. And with both me and the guy I'm trading with being Tigers fans we both kind of want Verlander. Do you think Weaver will do as good or better than last season? He started of so hot I'm tentative to let either pitcher go.Granted Weaver and Verlanders numbers will be fairly similar regardless I believe. But I do need a bat and right now I'm really disappointed in Rios and Werth, though both seem to be heating up.

either way u want a 2 for 1 or make him give u carl crawford 1 for 1
Hmmm he does Have Crawford too. So I coudl pull that and you're right about selling high on Weaver. DO you think Crawford is better than Pence though offensively? I mean Crawford will give me runs, avg and sbs, but will lack in Rbis and Hrs. Whereas pence will at least swipe me 15 I'd imagine
