What place are you in each cat? It would be pretty important to know that to really help. I would say your hitting seems to be a little weak actually, specifically middle infield (murph, alexei, alcides) and that should be upgraded if possible.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

If you can move Jones for Lince, I would do it. Under no circumstances would I trade away Jay Bruce right now. I think he is taking the first steps into superstardom.

Help with this Lawrie question?

I think Jones for Linc would be a good deal as well. You did say package deal, what else is asking for?

try countering with feliz and jones for lincecum and robertson. then aim for downs if he rejects it. i agree bruce is too good to trade right now. even if he slow down at the plate, he'll probably make it up on the bases. and work that MI... it does need some upgrading. good luck.

Any thoughts on mine? ---> viewtopic.php?t=446868
