I have Tex, Votto and Hosmer on my bench.

My OF is week apart from Kemp: Kemp,Abreu,Brown

I'm going to attempt to deal Tex/Pineda for Bruce and one of Kershaw/Hanson. I know I'm probably pushing it but it's worth a shot. Just wanted to hear some thoughts on the offer and if it would be good for my team.

12 teamer 8 Keepers 5x5 OBP instead of AVG and QS instead of wins

C Montero
1B Votto
2B Kinsler
3B Young
SS Reyes
OF Kemp,Abreu,Brown
UT Tex

SP Price,Verlander,Pineda,Bumgarner,E.Santana
RP Cordero,Walden
DL J.Johnson

BN Hosmer,Lawrie,Kubel,Crow,Capps

I think you might be pushing it a little bit but I'm not 100% sure. If he accepts, it would definitely be good for your team...I can see him making a ocunter offer for something like Kershaw/Bruce for Tex/Verlander...trying to get a lot due to Bruce's insane hot streak, but I don't know about that...Kershaw is a stud but it might be hard to come up with something fair...BUT again, Bruce would more than solidify ur OF and another ace would be huge for you, ,especially with Johnson on the DL...again, take this deal in a heart beat if he accepts (with Kershaw or Hanson). Good luck, and thanks for the help on mine! ;-D

i would make an offer for sure - I would emphasize the traditional strong second half Tex has had in years past, and that there is no way that Bruce can keep up this pace (which I do not believe). If you can convince him that he is getting the better bat, while giving the better pitcher - thus even - I think he may do it.

You could try but I personally wouldn't sell Bruce and Kershaw for Tex/Pineda.

maybe it's because I believe Bruce will continue his pace and hit 40 dingers this season. :-b
