Jump on this deal.....Your "OF" is stacked with (Trout/Kemp/Jennings)

I would rank your claims as follows
SS - Segura (Can't believe he is available)
OF - Willingham

forget the other two strikeout duds

I'd do it also. Get the upgrade at SP and depending on what you need to do better in on offense but if its power pick up willingham. Otherwise the 2b ability in the other guys would be useful.


Please help, I'm new and don't know how to post my links. But could you rate my team?

You dont think Im losing a big bat though? Im just concerned cause Crawford looks like he is gonna have a breakout year. I will pick up Willingham in his spot, but I'll be activating Zimmerman soon anyways off DL, so I need the space. Im not too worried about Cobb. Selling high on Crawford, but is he for real? RISK? Kinda buggin hahaha

Thanks guys!@

I'm very confident in Wainwright. I'm a little worried about crawford. So Unless you need the hitting more, I'd just stick with the two for one.

Once again, could you please help with my team and rate it. Just click my name and then go to my "Rate/Analyze me team" post.

Thanks

Another vote on doing this deal. I would pick up Segura. Having a hell of a break out year so far.
I wouldn't count on Crawford finishing the season.
THanks for the help on mine.

I am going to be the one saying 'No way.'

Crawford is in for a big year and Cobb is a hot prospect who will be good this year.

Thanks for the help on mine.

I like this deal, and it gets Machado in your starting lineup.

Thanks for the help on mine.....funny....I read this post as soon as I posted mine...lol

Anyways....I wouldn't make that trade....Wainwright is awesome and I believe a clear upgrade over Cobb but I just don't see it as a dominating upgrade. I feel Cobb is going to be awesome this season (like his last outing) and I also see Crawford having a monster year so I just don't see the difference between Wainwright and Cobb being a Crawford...I say pass!!!....GL M8!
