I'm not really sure you need Cain with your staff, I might want another bat in this deal. Losing Bruce hurts your OF and your UT players and bench are super young and unproven and will go through spurts all year.

Why would you want Gallardo...... He's worse then Cain. What exactly are you trying to accomplish with all these trades, I'm starting to think you just like making deals that go sideways. Looking at his pitchers, it shouldn't take much to trade with him because is pitching is pretty weak.

I don't have a lot of confidence in Bruce's consistency vis a vis someone like an Adrian or Cabrera, and we play 3 utility bats in our lineup so i can move brantley to the 3rd OF slot and play one of those uber boppers at util. I'm in a H2H league so I need to put my offensive consistency a bit and leverage my pitching to do so. But that's helpful advice on Gallardo. I should focus on Cain instead. I think if he would do Bruce and Felix for Cabrera and Cain then that might be the best since I don't think it's a horrendous fall-off from Felix to Cain given my other arms. What say you?

Go with that, you're worried about Bruce, I wouldn't pen in Brantley for a long term solution.
