It's a trade I've been dabating and not sure if I should pull the trigger. I might be giving up the better pitcher but I do have Doc, Wainwright and soon Lincecum. Pitching is not a problem.
Adam Lind, Micheal Young and Kuroda
Carlos Lee, Liriano and Cantu
Lind is an upgrade over Lee. Lee is struggling but I believe is playing better but it's Lind. Cantu is amazing so far, 27 RBI's but will it continue? That's what I'm wondering. Is the 3B part of the deal worth it?
i think ur upgrading pitchers too, kuroda aint that good, liriano will be better -- do the trade .. lind is better then lee, liraiano is better then kuroda and cantu-young is a toss up .... in my opinion at least
Part of it depends on the size of your league and the categories (I'd imagine it's a smaller league based on who you said you have).
I would not make that trade. Lind is pretty good, but overrated, and Lee is not THIS bad (their numbers were almost identical last year anyway). Michael Young is nothing special and is not much, if any upgrade over Cantu. Importantly, Liriano is probably back, so you're trading away an elite SP for little if any upgrade (b/c the diff between Liriano and Kuroda is way bigger than any improvement in other positions). I see no benefit in this trade, 3B or not. If you want to trade Liriano for a bat, then simply do it straight up.
