    Pitcher trade-up question

    Heres the scenario - one guy who was not at the live draft ended up auto picking. To keep this short, his team is lacking in relief pitching and starting pitching depth. He has Carlos Marmol, I have Kerry Wood and 2 other closers (Corpas and Capps). I have 7 starting pitchers (Jon Lester is my 7th), and he has 6, including Lackey and Pettite, who are both on the DL. He also has Verlander, King Felix, and Javier Vasquez.

    I'm thinking about offering him Kerry Wood, Oliver Perez, and either Jon Lester or Matt Garza for Felix Hernandez. My angle would be that he could drop Marmol for Kerry Wood to round out his closers since I have a spare and he needs to fix his, and the potential combined stats of Oliver Perez and either Garza or Lester would probably be pretty good compared to Felix...

    Is this a bad idea for me? For him? Could it work out for both of us?
