Ubaldo for Gio? WHIR

I have been offered Ubaldo for Gio but I'm really on the fence about it.

I think it's worth the risk. Ubaldo has struggled mightily, but he's shown signs of his old self (last Sunday's start vs the Brewers comes to mind) and Gio is a decent price to pay and hope for a bounceback.

I'd do it.

Ubaldo's pitching is a lot better the last 2 games and it's only a matter of time he picks up W's and get back to where he belongs.

Gio's been very hot and I expect some drop in numbers from here on out. He'll end with good numbers but I like Ubaldo's possible upside.

You could take chance on buying low.... However, Gio in his ballpark is pretty safe week to week. I actually prefer Gio. If you have a strong pitching group, it may be worthwhile taking the chance.... However, if you have few risks to take, I'd ride out Gio.

This. ;-D It all depends on the rest of your squad. If you can take the risk then go for it.
