You want Colby cause of his 6 RBIs today
Been trying to pry Colby/Bruce off him since week three!

So I'll be honest and say that I like what you get a lot more than what you give. Basically I think Berkman is at a peak, Norris is bleh, and Pedroia honestly isn't really that great (good for SB, but the rest is just kind of high average). There's no one to counter Verlander in here, so unless he's desperate and has SP depth I don't see why he'd bite.
Pineda does make it interesting... much more likely he might see parity in that and go for it. The question is really just around the peripherals of the deal. If you really think it's worth ditching Pineda (and I don't disagree on the innings cap) maybe you deal Pineda/Berkman for Verlander/Rasmus... it "looks" better for him, but I'm higher on your side. You could add in Norris or Pedroia if you want to sweeten the pot, but it's really trying to swap out an SP for a better second half SP.
You could also do Pineda/Berkman/Pedroia or Reynolds (god I hate Reynolds, dropped his ass to the wire) for just Verlander/Scherzer, which I also like (your SPs would be ridiculous).
Hope that helps. Thanks for the comment on mine.
He does have SP depth. He needs a 2B badly (only has Darwin Barney, who isn't horrible.... but meh) and he doesn't have sOF depth.
Here's how I see it.
Pedroia for Verlander
He upgrades Barney to Pedroia. Pedroia should have a decent Avg/SB/R/RBI just for the lineup he's in...
He gives up Verlander for Pedroia. (I wouldn't even mind a straight trade.)
Rasmus for Berkman + Norris.
Rasmus is a decent producer. Berkman would offset the loss of Rasmus in terms of replacing a player at the same position. Even if his power isn't there, he is batting for a decent average and accumulating tons of walks, which helps his OBP significantly (which is counted in our league instead of hits). He also gets Norris who has tons of Ks (over 9k/9IP) to help replace Verlander. Since his SP depth is significant, this seemed like an okay trade as it was.
Throwing in Pineda for Scherzer is just kind of a way to sweeten the pot a little bit and to move Pineda as I wanted.
I actually sent him three trades
Ped for Verl
Ped + Norris + Berk for Ras + Ver
Ped + Norris + Berk + Pin for Ras + Ver + Scherz
