    SP - A.J. Burnett (Tor - SP)

    P - Jair Jurrjens (Atl - SP)

    DL - John Smoltz (Atl - SP) DL
    DL - Kelvim Escobar (LAA - SP) DL
    DL - Scott Baker (Min - SP) DL

    Farm Club:
    1 - Greg Smith (SP - OAK)
    2 - Nick Adenhart (SP - LAA)
    3 - Angel Villalona (3B - SFG)
    4 - Jarrod Parker (SP - ARI)
    5 - Armando Galarraga (SP - DET)
    6 - Chris Perez (RP - STL)
    7 - Jay Bruce (OF - CIN)
    8 - Rick Porcello (SP - DET)
So over the past two weeks, I have made three major trades that in my opinion will benefit my team in the long-run:

Trade 1: I send Tim Lincecum and Gio Gonzalez in exchange for Carl Crawford and Nick Adenhart
Trade 2: I send Pat Burrell in exchange for Mark Teixeira
Trade 3: I send Paul Konerko in exchange for Phil Hughes (I know, out till July, but I needed a long-term ace)

So essentially, I have traded away Lincecum, Burrell, Konerko, and Gio Gonzalez in exchange for Crawford, Teix, Hughes, and Adenhart. I feel that I should probably try to deal Hawpe/Ibanez + Burnett/Snell for a SP upgrade. If I were to do this, I think my OF consisting of Bay, Crawford, Gomez, and Hawpe/Ibanez should be able to hold down the fort until Jay Bruce is promoted.

One manager has placed McGowan, Billingsley, and Ervin Santana on the trade block while asking for 1B, 2B, OF, UTIL and P. Can you think of any deal I should try to land any of these three?

How do you feel my team looks long-term after making these three trades? I feel that losing Lincecum via trade and Smoltz to the bullpen will hurt, but with the arms I have stored in my farm and on my active roster, I think I should still be able to compete in most pitching categories. Do you agree?

I like the 3 deals you made. Should help you in the long run.

Try to pry away Billingsley, McG or Santana for Weeks/Ibanez? Or some combination?

I think they're pretty decent trades. I don't like Phil Hughes at all, but that's just me. Getting Tex as a good move.
