I think it is fair. Though I am not sure I would do it. I don't think you need another 2B so if you could get an OF to replace Hart then I would be happier with it. But you do get a nice upgrade with Sabathia. I do think Butler is going to take a step forward this year so I would be hesitant about moving him but again the trade is fair.

Yeah I agree with Butler, it just kills me that he's only DH eligible this year.

Would u prefer this deal instead?

I love how low everyone is on Stubbs. In any league with long-term tendencies, I think Stubbs is a sweet buy-low opportunity. If he ever cuts the K's (and he young enough to do so IMO), then he is a quentisential speed/power combo. Hart is good, but on the wrong side of 30 with diminshing speed. And then you get the CC upgrade. I would concentrate there.

Second deal looks good to me. You avoid giving up Butler and you're not getting Utley back, two good things in my book.

Ok so after turning down the first deal I went back to the second deal. Owner now would like to add another pitcher along with Hart and Hellickson. I offered Vogelsong and he denied. So I'm left with 3 other options. Help me decide.

Send: Hart, Hellickson and Nolasco/Matusz/Anderson.

Receive: Stubbs and CC.

I'd prefer to send Nolasco but I don't see that happening. Do you see any these 3 as a deal breaker or should I just tell to pick one of the three and get on with deal?

Your help is MUCH appreciated!

I would be happy to add any of those three to get this deal done. CC is a significant upgrade over the rest, so getting him is key.

As for the three SP, I would probably keep Anderson, Matusz, and then Nolasco in that order. But it really doesn't matter IMO.
