    Trade P. Maholm for B. Butler? Too good to be true?

    I am in a 10 team Head to Head (Most Categories),
    ESPN Std Scoring Format:
    -Batting: (AVG), (HR),(R), (RBI), (SB), (OBP)
    -Pitching: (ERA)*, (K), (WHIP)*, (W), SV)
    *Minimum 20 IP
    Below is my lineup and I feel I have too many SP's as is, this guy has Pujols, Butler and Encarnacion..... So I may be able to go for one of those players as he benches Pujols regarly and I NEED HELP AT 1B desperately, my SS has been poor but I am hoping for Jeter to help my AVG and OBP as that is the only thing that is killing me, I am 1-1 and lost bc of these categories however I do like this pitcher, but is he not the atypical sell high candidate? This trade feels too good to be true, I need a 1B and especially a righty....I am dropping Middle as Headley will be back tmrw and I have much better options so do you all think this is a must accept? Or do I push my luck and get Matt Holiday bc I am only weak at 1B and OF depth ATM, also SS performance and injuries but would this make or break my lineup? I feel it would make my team unreal.... What do you think? Feel free to ask any questions as I do TONS of research, THX!
