Here is the trade,

I get: Russ Ortiz and Bobby Higginson

I give away:Matt Clement and Brad Penny

I know Clement has great potential but his teams struggling now, Russ Ortiz is awsome to. Accept or Decline?

Not a trade to open your eyes at all.

A question. What does your OF currently look like and what does your pitching staff look like? I am not sure what you would be gaining here, you lose Penny who I would put in the same category as Ortiz. If you need an OF, Higginson is in the same category as Clement. But nothing in this trade blows me away.

I'm out! ;-D

I agree with mktgteach's assessment - it depends on your current rotation and outfield. If you have too many starters or need to make room, this looks like a decent way of doing so (two-for-ones notwithstanding); the same if you're desperate for an upgrade at of. If not, I'd probably stick with what you have, or scour the wire for an of.
