In a vacuum I think Holliday is more valuable than Bumgarner, but for your team I wouldn't make this deal.

Holliday won't be that big of an upgrade in the OF for you over Gordon but Bumgarner will be a big downgrade.

I would not make that deal, especially if he is asking you to throw in a 2nd player. Holliday is a solid 30/100/.300 guy, but for your ace? Not worth it. You have PLENTY of bats. In fact, I would look to try and upgrade your saves situation. I hate paying for saves, so maybe check the wire out for something to speculate on...but yeesh. It doesn't get any less trustworthy than Cishek, Marmol, and Veras. The only shakier trio would be Axford, Marmol, and Veras. :-o

I just don't want to see your WHIP get killed...those guys are WHIP killers. WHIPicide, if you will.

I think I'd rather have empty slots. What kind of wire availability is there?
