Stubbs, Markakis and Bills for CarGo huh? Hmmm...
I really like Stubbs a lot. Markakis is only 27 and looked like he'd be a superstar at 25. And Bills is a very good pitcher entering his prime. You'd get very good depth from the deal...but...CarGo's upside is well beyong anyone else in this deal. Stubbs is never going to hit for average...Markakis has been a big disappointment since "breaking out"...and Bills, while solid, has averaged only 12 wins the past two seasons.
Hmmm...I'm leaning towards no. Your pitching is pretty good so Bills isn't a huge need. Outside of CarGo and Reyes, I don't love your line-up. Is Stubbs and Markakis going to make you that much better? Prolly not because whatever upgrade you get with Markakis over whoever, you'll prolly be equal in the downgrade from CarGo to Stubbs.
No...but it made me think. viewtopic.php?t=429464
