I think I would do this. Utley is 33 and there was a point last year where many people questioned if he would ever play again. The signs of decline are every where with him so you might as well get something for him. Gio is a pretty decent return. If Gio could ever cut back on those BB (not sure I believe he can) he could be a top 15 SP.

I am just second guessing myself I guess. Utley is projected to hit around 280 with 15 bombs and 15 SB. But if I did the deal for GIo I could fill Utley's spot with maybe Beckham and get 250 14HR and get Gio who will is projected to get 16 wins 200Ks. Isnt that good return for an aging MI? Or is MI more important right now than getting another stud pitcher?

have have HAVE to keep Utley. saves are cheap, and you can easily find them on the waiver wire. See Sergio Santos, Ryan Madson, etc. Stick with Utley. Thanks for your help on mine

Is there anyway you could perhaps add a 2nd leg that is slightly in your favour but keep the Utley/Gio leg in there? Utley is definitely in decline, as are some of the other pieces of their lineup (Rollins, no Howard likely for the first month at least). Gio improved last year and I would think that the move to the NL would help. I would be open to moving Utley if you get the right deal in place.

Thanks for the help on mine.

Those projections are real low.
I wouldn't call Gio a ace. His whip is shaky, he walks everyone. He won't have Oaklands park (foul territory) to bail him out.
I expect his stats to get worse leaving Oakland.
