I like the idea of the Pedrioa for Verlander straight up idea and if that doesn't work, you can always try throwing in a bench player to the offer on your side. If a player on my bench that I can replace pretty easily from the WW is needed to get a trade done, I usually have no problem throwing him in.
Thanks for the help on my question.
Well, Norris is not exactly a great pitcher, and the upgrade to Lester or Verlander would be significant. Upgrading a WW piece like Brantley to Rasmus would be very useful. I've had to play matchups in OF every day. Some days I'm wrong, and it's not a happy day for me when that happens.
My first post actually failed to mention I dropped Brantley for Kelly Johnson last night.
So, my team would goPedroia down to K. Johnson
Brantley up to Rasmus
Norris up to Verlander or Lester.
This seems like a mild to moderate downgrade in 2B for significant upgrades to OF and SP.
As for my RP's, they win every week. The combination of three solid closers on three winning teams ensures production through thick and thin. They don't need to be worked.
On a side note, is Verlander really more desirable than Lester? O_o
