I'd say NO. Cargo will get it going. He is swinging much better over the past 7 days. Wright is hurt right now, and his numbers are really showing it. I like Gordon, but he's really only an AVG/RBI guy. He may show pop later, but he'll never end up with Cargo's numbers. Additionally, I don't think you can afford to lose Lester. He & Lee are your only proven guys.
Thanks.

I wouldn't. Cargo will get going, plus losing Lester.

I'm not a fan of losing Cargo here.

I'd pretty much echo what others have said. You'd be selling CarGo low, and I fully expect him to bounce back. Plus, I don't really think you can afford to lose Lester.

i dont no i kinda like the deal just because u do need to fix some of your problems the revised deal that is

you add youk you add wright those are both gonna help you put bj upton back in ur outfeild thats a huuuuge drop off but its somthin better than waiver wire outfeild you need to get a crap shoot pitcher like mcchellan ogando humber bartolo colon in the back end of the deal giviing up lester is gonna weaken you big time in pitch
