Of course it does, since Jackson's on your bench! If this trade goes down then you made a great acquisition to solidify your staff some.

That's a solid trade for you. Peavy is an injury risk of course but could pay huge dividends for you. Take it and run

Jackson will be more valuable than Peavy -- mark my words, the blowup is coming -- when it's all said and done. That said, you do have an OF surplus. Instead of jettisoning the leadoff hitter for a boom squad, perhaps you can get someone to bite on the Trout/Harper hype? Neither rookie will come close to Jackson in production or value this year.

Help with mine?
