Mmmmmmmmm...... Stanton is the piece in my mind.... I actually do not like giving up Kershaw. Without seeing more info such as roster, I am thinking no. My mind could be changed if I saw rosters, esp yours.


Lend me your voice....

I think you're giving up a bit too much here, especially with the way Stanton has been hitting.

I'd do this if Kershaw wasn't part of the deal, but I have a hard time justifying it otherwise.

(Do note though, I've never really bought into the CarGo hype, so I don't like his odds of regressing towards last years' numbers).

That's a lot to give up...... I would like it better if you weren't giving up two pitchers. I don't see any real upgrade in giving up both Kershaw and Shields to get Hanson. Would be nice to have Gonzalez, but seems like a lot to give up. Not an unfair deal though.

I originally offered

Hellickson, Stanton, and Kershaw

for
Hanson, and Cargo

He countered with the previously mentioned trade.

I am thinking more along the lines of Hanson and Shields being interchangeable. With me giving Kershaw for Cargo. I am banking on Cargo heating up though. At this point I kind of dont want to give Stanton in addition to Kershaw and Shields.
