My trade just went through!
I got Mark Texiera for Cliff Lee and Jose Lopez
My team is now:
OF- Carlos Lee
BN- Hairston Jr
Volquez, Harang, Linecum, Dempster, Hamels
BJ Ryan, Fuentes, Franklin, Borowski
you made out fine. To get a basher like Teixeria for a minimal cost was great. Lopez is a decent 2b but you can probably still get a guy like kaz matsui off the FA wire who is a similair talent with more speed
You have a pretty good team but you might need another good starting pitcher in your rotation.
And you also might need a backup for young at SS. Bobby Crosby is a good prospect and if he is a free agent pick him up because he is having a decent year.
And that was a good trade for Mark Teixeira because Cliff Lees success won't last much longer and Teix will heat up soon.
I am a big fan of TEX and have him on a number of my teams - he does have a history of getting hot this time of year - however, I think you gave up too much - there are a lot of good hitting 1st basemen in the league that you could have picked up for a lot less than Lee
In any event good luck
An ATLANTA FAN
Good deal. Tex is known for catching on fire the 2nd half of the season. & Cliff Lee isn't guaranteed to keep up this great pitching. I like your pitching even without him; I think u could afford to lose him.
