Also, would you do a trade of Kendrick Joba and Ziegler for Dan Uggla and Chris Young (SP)?
I'll do a whole breakdown
Catcher, 1st, and SS are all solid.
You are gonna be soft in the middle with Kendrick and Figgins but get Average and decent speed numbers. I think your OF can compensate with the lack of pop but I wouldn't bank on Kendrick. I think he's an over glorified singles hitter until proven otherwise (Freddy Sanchez). I would try and swing a deal or see other options out there (Aaron Hill is a nice bounceback candidate). I'd try and move Ludwick or Dye for a middle infielder with pop and a decent avg. (Maybe Holliday for Utley?) I like Adam Jones this year to be an impact player and you should get him in your lineup. If Webb is half of what he is you still have a solid staff. If he goes down you might be in a little trouble. I like Verlander as a 5th starter and is low risk. Sonnastine is a bum though. I might just dump him for an infielder. Your pen is shaky but 4 closers are 4 closers. Keep an eye on Ziegler's numbers, especially his walks, he does not have classic closers "stuff". If he falters Santiago Casilla could be a darkhorse.
I don't like that trade for you simply because it's rough to carry Mark Reynolds and Uggla in any format. If you don't like Joba' upside I'd still do it and bench Reynolds in favor of Jones. Ziegler is a nonfactor in the deal because in 2 months someone will get hurt and you can just pick up another closer.
