I'm not sure what's supposed to be big about this trade but whatever.


I don't see why you wouldn't do the deal. Baker is good not great and Masterson is basically waiver material. Jurrjens is a little over his head but he's still better than those 2. I'd give it a shot.

sorry about the "big" trade title. It's an automatic thing for me to type when i make posts regardless.

do you think I am sacrificing too much K wise? And do you think Jurrjens will not implode in the second half?

It's a great deal. I really think Jurrjens is going to continue to be great.

Jair is a better option than either SP you'd move. Unless your league is especially deep both baker and masterson are easily replaced. Jair probably isn't as good as he's shown so far either. But he's still an upgrade. No reason not to take this.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

My league is very deep. The best pitchers available is Carlos Villanueva and Jason Marquis.

My league is very deep as well. I'd still make this trade. Whatever the exact opinion, Jurrjens is definitely an upgrade for you.
Between those to FA pitchers, I'd take Marquis because he has thrown some nice games this year and I don't trust Villanueva.
Who are the other free agent SP?
