Already have Gio....without Felix my staff is still fine, 9 rotatable guys. And I'll likely be adding Scherzer to the mix this week.

I say go with Felix for Bautista first, If he wants more then add one of your OF's but don't go crazy. Worse comes to worse you can offer Gio For Lind, but at least try to get Baustista.

Lind for Gio is good. Smething like chris young and bedard for Bautista may be worth trying. But I would not mortgage your studs (Felix and Verlander). They are N asset come playoff time. You should offer quantity instead of quality, even if it lands you only Lind.

Help me out?

Since its a keeper, I think the first move I would try is Bedard for Lind. Bedard is having a heck of a season, but with his injury history, I would be trying hard to cash in now. Certainly I would do that before offering a young gun like Beachy.

I think Felix is going to be a top 5 pitcher for years to come, again, since its a keeper, I think that changes my opinion on trade values. I would rather have him than Bautista who has captured magic in a bottle, but I don't think he has nearly as much time left as a stud as Felix. Just my feeling.

Thanks for the help with mine.

As they say, most people will not trade a solid offensive piece for a solid starter. If he really is a rookie, you may be able to get him to bulge with Verlander or King Felix, but if I were him I would decline the deal in a second. Even though Bautista has slowed down, he still has an AVG way over 300 and leads the league in homeruns. As good as both of those pitchers have been, you are most likely going to have to give something else as well.

I would rather deal Hernandez than Verlander by FAR because of the teams they are on, so maybe you could offer Felix/Bedard or Felix/Beachy an he may be intrigued. Everyone has to understand that Bedard/Beachy were both WW pickups not too long ago and have unproven value at the moment. Sure Beachy's return was lights out, but how about his next time out? and sure, Bedard has been pitching well, but what about when he first pitched this year?


I'd say: King Felix + Beachy or Bedard FOR Bautista

I'm gonna jump on the Lind wagon... I wouldn't mess with your pitching too much as it's dominating for you each week. Lind for Bedard would be a no brainer, but for Gio would be fine as well.
