Gallardo for Utley and Wainwright?

Postby guyincognito » Tue Jul 17, 2012 11:37 pm

Would you do this trade:

I give Gallardo
I get Utley and Wainwright?

I could really use the help at 2B and while Gallardo has looked stellar lately he usually tanks in the second half of the year. Is this worth it? The guy also has interest in Wilson and has some interest in Upton. He needs to do a 2 for 1 with a bunch of guys coming off the DL. Players he has listed as available: Wainwright, Utley, Berkman, Feliz, C.Santana, Haren, Miley, Pierzynski.

I would hesitate quite a bit to give up someone for two guys with serious injury history. I would hang onto Gallardo and Wilson, but if you can get him to bite on Upton then I would consider it. Maybe try and get Wainwright or Haren with Utley, but flip one of them or some other arm on your roster for a speedster. That way you get the 2B help but don't lose much in production.

Would you do Upton for Utley/Berkman or Utley/Santana? Upside is there, but a lot of question marks.
