I'd also be getting Tim Hudson along with Tex and Marmol. I have V Mart at Catcher, so I've been trying to move Mauer before he comes back. I don't need him or Werth really either. But getting Tex would lock up my Util spots, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it would limit my lineup some. What do you think? I don't need Marmol either, but I would like another closer.
C - V Mart 1B - Votto 2B - Kinsler SS - A Ramirez 3B - Reynolds OF - Pence, Crawford, Quentin Util - Ortiz, R Davis
I like this too. Tex is the best player in the deal, Mauer is hurt and Pineda should see a correction some time soon. Even when Mauer comes back, you have no where to put him so trading him now is a good idea.
I have to agree that this seems like a win for you. You have the pieces to replace what your dealing and you get great production in return, including the loss in K's that will likely accompany the addition of Tim Hudson.
