Personally, I like Lester, Wainwright, Cain better than Price anyways.
No, I wouldn't give up top pitching prospects for nothing. But for me, I like David Price way more than any of the other pitchers you listed.
Wainwright hasn't pitched in a year. Given that STL generally does a good job with pitchers suffering these types of injuries. He isn't a sure thing though. He is the first guy I attempt to move in this deal.
Cain is nice, especially in a H2H league, but most certainly has peaked. Cain is the second guy I attempt to move if he won't go for Wainwright.
I am a Red Sox fan and think Lester is a good pitcher. He is comparable to Price, but in all honesty I'd rather have Price. Price is younger, has slightly higher upside, and is more mature than Lester is. If their teams were reversed, I don't think there would even be a debate IMO.
But we're all allowed to have varying opinions. If you like the other three over Price, and are comfortable moving a good SP for prospects, then make the deal.
