Trade Lester WHIR?

Postby Philly_05 » Sun Aug 14, 2011 11:59 am

Got a pretty interesting offer on the table.

John Lester and Mike Montgomery

for

Matt Cain, Michael Pineda and Jose Iglesias

My roster is as follows. I can keep as many players as I was up to $40. So I could go into next season with a staff looking like. Cain isn't to far off of what Lester is and I could only hope that Montgomery comes up and pitches as well as Pineda has? Should I move on this one like I think I should?

You are getting 2 proven aces for 1 proven ace and a great prospect, but w/o any major league experience. I think Iglesias is just a throw-in....

I would do it.

Help with mine?

Just snagged my second trade of the day tonight.

Paul Goldschmidt and a 3rd rounder for Ryan Howard and a 4th rounder.

So I have added Matt Cain, Michael Pineda and Ryan Howard and a 4th rounder today for John Lester, Mike Montgomery, Paul Goldschmidt and a 3rd rounder.
