BTW, as a huge yankee fan and a red sux hater.....it pained me to take pedro. but i couldn't pass him up[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/img]
i also have no yankees on my team...[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif[/img]

and as you can tell, i really have zero interest in catchers.

well, i wanted to get rid of pedro.....here is my chance?

please tell me what your opinion is here....

offered lance berkman and randy wolf, for pedro and cc sabathia.

my take=close to pulling the trigger. sabathia was a 20 round pick, so you can take him. its basically pedro for wolf and berkman. i need help with the OF, and berkman is all the help i would need. however, do i have enough pitching now? wood, millwood, wolf, garcia, and leiter....is that good enough? bottom line is, how good is wolf????? that's the question!!!!

please tell me what you think here, as i feel this could make or break my season before it has started. THX

I personally would NOT do that deal.

I am not sold on Lance Berkman( I wouldn't mind having him, but not at that price). I don't know the numbers, but he died last year in the second half.

Pedro is untradable(for me anyway) he is going to dominate whip get you 250k's and probably have the best era in baseball.

I also feel that there is not much of a difference between wolf and sabathia( I give wolf a slight edge)

I just feel that pedro will anchor your staff all season.

With 10 teams you are bound to find some free agents with decent power, but you will not find another pitcher like pedro

Your team looks pretty strong to me. Your offese on a whole seems strong. It is expected that the outfield will not be a monster outfield, because you have a monster infield. The only thing you are lacking is some speed(not alot, but you could use some more).

Ordonez is awesome
Alou 50/50 depending on injuries
Dye should have a big year
Encarnacion could go 20/20
Cruz another hit or miss..he could have a very big year in that line up???
