I like that deal. You lose a little in SB but I think you will be alright and you get rid of a bad BA guy while adding a top notch SP.

Do it. No roster should have more than one Colby on it anyway.

Definitely do the deal. You get the best player in my opinion and the hit you take is minimal on offense.

Please help with mine

BJ is a great talent, but I think I really like the idea of getting Hamels here. You'd have a devastating trio at SP, and I think you could use the waiver wire well enough to find yourself a suitable replacement. Let us know what OFs are still out there, and we'll try to help you.

In the meantime, hope that Rasmus does what we all have been waiting for him to do for 3 years (25-25, .270). If so, you're fine. Haha :-o
