    Trade advice needed

    So, my OF consists of Pagan, CarGo, Ethier and Torres (Yes, I carry 4 OF'ers) and I'm short one dependable starter.

    Trading Ethier for Dan Haren... would that make sense? The person who has Haren has inquired with me if an OF'er was available, so I'm considering this deal.

    And, if you think it's a good idea to trade Ethier at this point, would you rather go for Haren, Weaver, Floyd or Felix?

    • Felix is obviously the top choice here but I don't think that he would go for that unless of course he's frustrated with the lack of run support Seattle offers.

      My next choice would be Weaver and call me crazy, but I like Floyd cause you could probably get him + another pitcher or an OF replacement. My last choice would be Haren, just don't like him especially with his second half history.

      • Solid reply, thanks.

        Felix obviously would be my first choice, but the lack of run support has me hesitant too. Floyd would be tricky to get in a package, since the person I'm dealing with is an avid White Sox fan and will not likely give up Floyd.

        Did not realize Haren is a 'bad second half' pitcher. His stats with the Angels are very good so far, so I'm kinda hoping the added run support would get him W's. He's got the K's already and the WHIP is low right now too..

        Tough one. Have to think it over a little bit.
