Commissioner Corner Message Board
Im throwing this trade out there since im in desparate need of SP and could use a power bat
I give: Mauer, Kemp, Pablo
I get: Cliff lee, Longoria
Doumit is on the FA list so i could pick him up to replace mauer
u give up too much power for that...Doumit isn't going to give you what mauer is by season end. Why not shoot for one of the rays starters. Or pick up one of the A's sp's off the wire. Gio Gonzalez will net you a lot K's and decent era with that good defense.
Pick up pitchers on winning teams too...
He won't do Cliff lee and mauer straight Up?

i just thought mauer had more trade value for me than anything. I wont a solid #4 hitter. I have reynolds but his average sucks. And i have too many outfielders but none of then are really worth dropping
Ordonez, Kemp, Jose, Guillen, Hunter, Gutierrez, Fukodome, McCutchen, Ichiro
I traded Longo for Mauer straight up. Well with Youk already, I could. I think the 1 for 1 is fine. So it seems to me that you are giving up Kemp and Pablo for Lee. Keep in mind Lee had shoulder and foot surgery in the off-season. As well as has an ab strain that put him on the DL for the first month of the season. In other words you are giving up an MVP, MVP caliber OFer and a solid 3B for Longo and a possible injury risk. I wouldn't do it.
