With Weaver injured, I figure now is my best chance to bolster my pitching for the second half of the season. I'm tempted to take this, but it seems like an overpayment:
I give: Buster Posey, David Wright, Corey Hart
I get: Brett Lawrie, Jered Weaver

Do I take it? Team/roster info here:

I'd pass. Lawrie is in a bit of a sophomore slump. Not enough for Wright + Hart.

Don't take that trade, just ride out the guys you have. Giving up Wright in that trade is the real kicker, especially for an injured Weaver, and Corey Hart is seriously undervalued.

Not to mention Lawrie is mired in a slump, which I think he'll get out of, but there's no reason to trade for him at the price paid during the draft (Hosmer style, just not quite as bad)

Help with mine?
