I have Luebke being worth a little more than a dollar more than Beachy so I prefer him slightly. I don't think you can go all that wrong either way, but I think I'd lean towards the guy pitching in Petco.
I do not make this trade right now. It appears like you are upgrading you SP but the way Liriano is throwing he could be better than Beachy and Leubke. What I would do is let Liriano pitch Lights out for 1 month then trade him. Rasmus I am not a fan of and Young looks like he may have turned the corner albeit its only ST
The NL East isn't as great as people think anymore. This is coming from a Phils fan. Beachy pitches on the team that has (arguably) the best offense, so no worries there. He gets to pitch against the Mets, Nationals, and a Phillies team that is losing its hitters left and right, and has so many question marks you might as well call us The Riddler.
I love Beachy. With that said, I think either deal is a win for you, as I have lost all hope in Liriano, and Delmon Young, who has supposedly met his potential or "turned a corner", isn't actually all that great. He doesn't walk much, and there is no VMart in that lineup anymore, and MCab is one more ground ball away from losing his eyesight it seems. I'm not that infatuated with Austin Jackson, and Prince will have some adjustment to go through.
Rasmus...I'm still holding out for. Blue Jays lineup is boom or bust, and I'm more inclined to think boom, which is why I like Rasmus in the last round or two.
