I mean maybe I don't even need to do a deal. It's just that my offense is horrible. Hitting .228 and winning like 2 out of the 9 categories offensively this week. It's pretty bad.

Dude, your offense is sick. I have a similar problem (MCab, Phillips, Zimmerman, Braun, J Upton, Holliday) where my offense is baller but everyone's injured/slumping. Ride it out, don't make a deal you don't need to make.

What'd you think of my potential offer for you?

My bad, man. Busy morning. Meant to reply sooner.

I like that idea a lot. And I appreciate the suggestion. I will throw it to the owner and see if I can't get something brewing with it. I agree that Beachy has such a high ceiling and I love the idea of having almost a "second tier Big 3" in Beachy, Zimmermann, Romero backing up my big 3 in Halladay, Hamels, Kennedy.

By the way, if I could in some way shop Kennedy and come away with either Cain or Gallardo, would those be upgrades or am I better off with Kennedy?

Cain for sure, by quite a bit. I'm not too hot on Gallardo so I'd probably stick with Kennedy.
