I'd want the BJ Upton side.

I'd rather have Upton/Becks/Wandy. Grabbing Becks allows you to boot Desmond from your 2B slot and shore up your SP which gets a little questionable towards the end.

Can you then try to package up Damon/Davis/pitcher to get a quality OF bat?

havok,

No fear of Wandy this year? I fear his numbers might have been better than they should have been last year.

grey - does bj damon reynolds tip it in my favor? i dont think quentin damon reynolds even gets considered by the other team.

i am not afraid of wandy - i've seen him pitch often enough to know has the skills, so im willing to gamble on him putting it together.

Your pitching looks fine, guess my question is what are you trying to gain in this trade?

There is that fear but I don't think he just falls onto his face this year either. His current lineup is pretty darned stacked with the exception of 2B so I think filling in Becks is a nice upgrade. JUpt is an upgrade over either Quentin or BJ to me by a good margin.

I'd rather hold onto Reynolds if I could and try to sell him on Chris Davis but I'm not sure that would get it done.
