I would say no just because your lineup appears to be a lot stronger than your staff.

So, are you on the receiving end of the Lee side or the Ortiz side? I'm not sure if you posted what your roster is currently or what it would look like after the trade.

Aside from that, your hitting is your strong side. If you are losing Lee for Ortiz, that is good value, but it would hurt your staff and give a log jam as to who to start for hitters. If you could then move Ortiz/Tex/Player X for another, better SP then it makes sense. The value is certainly there but I don't see your team getting better if you lose Lee.
