Currently sitting in 2nd place and like my chances to make a run at the championship this year(which obviously this deal wouldn't affect). I really like Bogaerts, think he's going to be a stud in a couple years, but I feel like I could use a little more youth on my pitching staff with Santana and Lilly getting up there in years and Lee's drop off in production this year. This would give me a very formidable top 4 of Strasburg, Kershaw, Zimmermann and Beachy/Pineda for years to come. Injury is obviously a concern with both guys (I'm especially worried about Pineda, shoulder injuries can ruin careers, though I think he does have the higher upside), but I'm willing to take the risk. So, should I go for it and, if so, which guy should I go with?

Also, do you see any other areas I need to address? I think I could use an upgrade at 1B and 2B, and it would probably be good to shed at least one of the Nats bats (sometimes let my fandom get the best of me haha), but other than that I like the way my team looks.

Thanks in advance for any input. Leave a link and I'll take a look at yours.

If you can get those two (all be it injured guys) to stash for 2013 or 2014 for a prospect like Bogaerts (you never know about prospects) I would take it, you could use the youth in your roster.

I would lean towards Beachy, but don't expect him to be ready next year.

I don't know a ton about Bogaerts but I like the upside of those two guys long-term.
