I need OF help and have made it known. Someone sent me an offer of their Nelson Cruz for my Adam Wainwright. I need power though...I was going to try to get Stanton from someone else instead. But should I take this? I'm thinking no...Wainwright's looked good this preseason, and if he's back on track he's an absolute beast.

Here's my team:

C: Jesus Montero
1B: Freddie Freeman
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: David Wright
SS: Starlin Castro
OF: Carl Crawford
OF: Corey Hart
OF: Chris Young
Util: Ike Davis
BN: Bryce Harper, Justin Morneau, Yoenis Cespedes, Matt Joyce

SP: Justin Verlander, Matt Moore, Adam Wainwright, Jon Lester, Johan Santana, Clay Buchholz, Vance Worley
RP: John Axford, Carlos Marmol, Francisco Cordero, Tyler Clippard, Jonathan Broxton

nope. I think your OF is fine and you would lose a lot out of your SP if you dealt Wainwright.

I'd say go for it. You've got Verlander, Moore, jester and Worley to pick up the slack. You can afford to lose Wainwright.

Agreed. As good as Wainwright has looked this Spring, you can't pass up on Nelson Cruz.

What if I countered with Lester instead of Wainwright? I'm hesitant to give up Wainwright so easily. If he pans out he'll be like having another Verlander on the team.

Yes, Cruz over Lester.
Wainwright over Cruz.

Anybody else? I've got two no's and two yes's. Still not sure what to do. I feel like I should take it if he'll do it for Lester, but I want to see if the Stanton thing pans out first.

I am fine doing Lester for Cruz but again not Wainwright. Wainwright can be a top 5 SP.
