With Ortiz over Dunn, I'd definitely be a little more inclined to take the deal. What would be the best is if you could hold on to Worley and only give up Buerhle or Lewis, but I'm not going to nit-pick.

It's just so hard to deal Montero. More of a general question, but is he going to pick up catcher eligibility at some point? I'd rather have Montero than Avila, obviously. But then again, Avila wouldn't get you the upgrade at pitching.

I honestly don't know. Flip a coin, maybe.

I decided to accept. I've won the league 6 years in a row on the back of dominant pitching. So while losing Montero hurts, I've upped the caliber (or at least trade value of my staff) and brought in some homers, doubles, RBI and walks.

Thanks guys!
