James Shields
Tommy Hanson
Daniel Hudson
John Danks
Edinson Volquez

Bench:
Lilly
Harang
Bedard

If I trade Upton, I'll have to slot either Dexter Fowler or Angel Pagan into my outfield, and my hitting will be depleted (I'll still have Napoli, Teixeira, Longoria, Ichiro).

Do I make this deal? Adding Lester to that staff is nasty, and while I feel my staff is already solid, there are too many question marks (Hanson's health, Hudson's youth, Volquez being Volquez..). I could always move Danks for a decent outfielder.

So, do I make this deal? If not, would you make it if I had him add Dunn with Lester?
Honestly, I'm not thrilled with your staff. But if I'm dealing Upton I would want a better pitcher back than Lester. I wouldn't do it.



I got invited to 10 team money league the other day and joined. So glad I did. This league was full of homers drafting horribly. I love this team.
