As you can see, I have a pretty good team in my opinion, with some great depth in my hitting and pitching.

So I think I can afford to make a move like this. Correct me if I'm wrong, however!

I've got Dempster and Zimmermann, both due for some regression, especially Dempster. I'm thinking about selling high on both and trying to package them to get a stud pitcher, like Verlander, Cain, Felix, or Kershaw.

My question is, is this possible? Would it be accepted? Should I do it? And if no of those questions, what should I do? Hold on to them and ride it out? Trade for someone else? Etc.

Thanks guys! WHIR

I don't think it's so far-fetched, look for a team in contention and sell them on Dempster's great numbers and how Zimmerman coul still be almost as good in the future.

Yeah you could sell a banana to a monkey if you can be a good salesman. Go for it.
