1) no, I am not one that thinks Lince is done. at all. he would be the second pitcher I would draft if there was a draft today.
2) my pitching staff already includes Lester and Josh Johnson to anchor the staff with J. Sanchez, Billingsley, Morrow, Cahill.
I had the best pitching staff in the league before I moved Ubaldo and I think between Strasburg, Hellickson and Webb they can fill in what I lost with Ubaldo.
(Webb is on my DL and Hellickson is on my minor league roster, so they don't need to take roster spots until they are actually pitching for me.)
3) I am clearly thinking about this year because I am preparing for the fact that Soriano, Manny, Quentin or Ortiz will be on the DL or struggling come playoff time, so Heyward is there to have their backs.
You are preparing to deal with injuries by trading for a player that's on the DL??? Also, how many keepers do you get? Because between Strasburg, Lester, Johnson, and likely a hitter or two that you already have, are you really going to be able to keep Heyward?
